Release information

In Japan, this card was first available as an Unnumbered Promotional card on a two-card insert alongside Mewtwo in the Pocket Monsters Fan Book, released on May 20, 1997. A mail-in prize draw offering another copy was published in the December 1998 issue of Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic Special, released in late October 1998. People wishing to enter the prize draw were required to affix the application ticket on the bottom left of the article page to a postcard and send it to Shogakukan. Two thousand winners were sent a set of five mounted cards on two plain sheets: Imakuni? and Super Energy Retrieval on one; Computer Error, Lt. Surge's Electabuzz, and Erika's Dratini on the other.

It was later reprinted as one of a selection of cards included in the Pokémon Song Best Collection CD, released on January 1, 1999. It was printed outside of Japan in the Neo Genesis expansion. The Japanese Gold, Silver, to a New World... print was updated to include "basic Energy cards" in the card effect, as Special Energy cards had yet to appear in the TCG at the time of its original print. This change was included in the wording for the English version.
