  • The Trainer's face displayed in the leader's box on this card is that of the Iron-Masked Marauder. This is the only Team Rocket card in the VS set that does this; other Team Rocket cards in the set picture a male Team Rocket Grunt in the leader's box.
  • This is the only card where the Iron-Masked Marauder's face is displayed in the leader's box on a Japanese card that wasn't released in English. The other two released cards with the Iron-Masked Marauder's face in the leader's box, Rocket's Scizor and Rocket's Sneasel from the P Promotional cards series, appeared in English as part of the Best of Game promotional series, though not with the leader's box on it.


The Iron-Masked Marauder captured a Tyranitar in a Dark Ball during Celebi: The Voice of the Forest. Slam is a move in the Pokémon games; however, Tyranitar cannot learn it.
