Trivia

Due to a printing error, very few copies of the Reverse Holofoil version of the EX Dragon print were produced, making it a rather sought after card amongst collectors.

Origin

This card depicts Gabby and Ty, recurring characters who can be challenged to several Double Battles throughout the Hoenn region in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and its remakes. After each battle, they would conduct a brief interview with the player, to be broadcast on TVs across Hoenn.
