Is this card a fake?

My little brother brought home a Charmeleon Base Set card from school today. When I looked at it there was something about it that did not look right to me. I looked the card up on here and on Google images and the ones I found looked different. I looked at the one from base set, base set 2, and the one that my brother brought from school. Here is a picture of them side by side. The one he brought home is the one on the right. The only differences I found is that the card color looks more orange, the description for the move Flamethrower is put on the card differently, the HP is farther away from the fire energy symbol in the top right corner, and on the bottom it says "© 1995, 96, 98, 99" instead of stopping at 98. Does this mean that this card is a fake or was base set reprinted in '99? --PikaPower! 21:19, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
