Release information

This card was initially made exclusively for the Pokémon Trading Card Game for the Game Boy Color and was never printed as an actual card in any language until its release in Pokémon Web.


This is only one of three Game Boy-exclusive cards that were later made actual cards. The others are Electrode and Dragonite.


Stun Spore is a move in the Pokémon games that Tangela can learn. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Yellow, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Blue.
