Release information

This card is one of the 46 cards first released in September 2003 in the English EX Sandstorm expansion before the release of their Japanese prints. The Japanese print was later released on October 24 in the Magma VS Aqua: Two Ambitions expansion. Subsequent prints of this card included in the EX Battle Stadium Deck Kit, as well as the Gardevoir EX Master Trainer Deck, lack the e-Reader Dot Code strip and feature a normal border following the cessation of TCG support for the e-Reader starting with the EX Hidden Legends expansion.



Bind and Rage are both moves in the Pokémon games that Onix can learn. This card's e-Reader Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Gold.
