Trivia

  • The requirement of Bill's PC for the campaign led to the five available cards to become known colloquially as Masaki promos in reference to Bill's Japanese name.
  • Cards from the Expansion Sheets are printed on glossy card stock, while those distributed as part of the Communication Evolution Campaign are printed on regular card stock.
  • Although the Communication Evolution Campaign cards are based on the concept that certain Pokémon have to be traded to evolve, Omastar's pre-evolved form, Omanyte, does not require to be traded in order to evolve in the Pokémon games.
