Release information

This card was released in the English Jungle expansion as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil card, originating from the Japanese Pokémon Jungle expansion as only a Holofoil card. The Non Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the English Base Set 2 expansion.

Early prints of the Unlimited Holofoil version of this card were printed without the Jungle set symbol.


  • Although this Pokémon is level 28, Venonat does not evolve into Venomoth until level 31.
  • Venomoth's species name is mislabeled as "Poisonmoth Pokémon," while its actual species name is the "Poison Moth Pokémon."


Shift's Japanese name is that of Color Change, an Ability later introduced in the Generation III Pokémon games that Venomoth cannot have. Venom Powder's Japanese name is that of Shield Dust, an Ability later introduced in the Generation III Pokémon games that Venomoth can have. 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.
