This card was as a Wizards Black Star Promo released as part of a Nintendo 64 bundle package with Pokémon Stadium. In Japan, it was first available as an Unnumbered Promotional card as part of the Nintendo 64 Double Get Campaign. Between December 10, 1997 and January 31, 1998, customers at participating stores who purchased a Nintendo 64 were given a booklet containing Cool Porygon, Hungry Snorlax, and a set of two Food counters for use with Hungry Snorlax's attacks. Customers were also given a copy of Singing Pokémon Encyclopedia. Later Japanese versions were reprinted as one of a selection of cards included in the Pokémon Song Best Collection CD, released on January 1, 1999. Later English versions were available through the Pokémon League in 2000.
The Black Star Promo symbol on this card is smaller compared to other Wizards Black Star Promos, which propagated a rumor that two variant prints were produced with differently-sized Black Stars.
This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue.
