Release information

This card was included in the Jungle expansion, first released in the Japanese Pokémon Jungle expansion. A promotional variant of the English print was created with a gold border and made available in boxes of Pokémon Rolls for a limited time in December 1999. The Jungle print was later reprinted in the Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection expansions.



Pay Day is a move in the Pokémon games that Meowth can learn. The Japanese name of the attack uses the Hiragana ねこ rather than the Katakana ネコ used in the video games. The card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
