==Release information==
This card was awarded to those who came second in each {{tt|age division|Junior, Senior, and Master}} in the [[World Championships]]. It was first awarded in 2004 when [[Pokémon Organized Play]] hosted the first Pokémon TCG World Championships under [[Pokémon USA]], and has been awarded at every Worlds tournament since. In 2007 this card was printed on DP stock, lacking the circle pattern prior prints featured. In 2010 this card was printed on HGSS stock, adopting the blue Trainer color scheme and gold illustration window. In 2011 this card was printed as an {{TCG|Item card}} on BW stock as per all previously classed Trainer cards.
This card was released as a promotional card. In Japan, it was awarded to the runners-up of the first, second and third Tropical Mega Battle tournaments held in Hawaii in 1999, 2000 and 2001 respectively. The card was never released in English.
 
==Trivia==
*The illustration takes inspiration from the first {{TCG ID|Pokémon Card Game Official Tournament|No.2 Trainer|promo}} produced in Japan in 1997, featuring {{p|Pikachu}} holding a silver trophy.
This card is one of the rarest cards in the world, with only one copy of the card produced for each tournament, meaning only three exist. The card can still reach sums of $9,000 in auctions.
*The card is predominantly the same in each year; the only difference is the logo of the Worlds tournament it was awarded in and the year in the text.
*The card is only printed in English, making it one of the rarest English cards in existence. There are only three copies of each annual version produced.
*The 2007-2009 prints do not have "Trainer" in the top right corner of the card as per all Trainer cards released during the DP era. The 2011 print also features a ruling as per all Item cards, but is unique to the No. 2 Trainer.
*The 2010 print credits [[Ryo Ueda]] as the illustrator, despite there being no difference from all previous prints. The 2011 print once again credits [[K. Hoshiba]], suggesting this was an error. It is unknown if the same error applied to the {{TCG ID|World Championships 2004|No. 1 Trainer|promo}} and {{TCG ID|World Championships 2004|No. 3 Trainer|promo}} cards.
