Release information

The non-holographic version of this card was reprinted in the Base Set 2 reprint set, which was only released outside of Japan.


A number of early Unlimited run prints have no Jungle expansion symbol. This error occurs on the holographic version only.


Shift's Japanese name is that of Color Change, an Ability in the Pokémon games; however, Venomoth cannot have it. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
