Release information

Prototype Pokémon Leagues were given the Trainer Deck B, which included this card, before the Base Set's release. All cards in this deck have a red border and "Trainer Deck B" printed on the back. This card was included in the Base Set, first released in the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was reprinted in the Base Set 2 expansion. A special W Wizards stamped version of the Base Set 2 print was released with the March 2000 issue of Top Deck Magazine.

In the Scarlet & Violet Series, this card was reprinted in Holofoil with its original Base Set artwork in the Blastoise & Suicune ex deck of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic. This reprint lacks a regulation mark and is thus not legal for tournament play.

Trivia

Some copies of this card have Wartortle instead of Squirtle in the evolution box.

Origin

Withdraw and Bite are both moves in the Pokémon games that Wartortle can learn. 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.
