Release information

This card was included in the Jungle expansion as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil card, first released in the Japanese Pokémon Jungle expansion as only a Holofoil card. The Non Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the Base Set 2 expansion.


  • Although this Pokémon is level 28, Venonat does not evolve into Venomoth until level 31.
  • Early prints of the Unlimited Holofoil version were printed without the Jungle set symbol. This error was corrected later in the print run.


Shift's Japanese name is that of Color Change, an Ability introduced in the Generation III Pokémon games that Venomoth cannot have. Venom Powder's Japanese name is that of Shield Dust, an Ability introduced in the Generation III Pokémon games that Venomoth can have. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
