Release information

This card was released in the English Base Set with artwork by Mitsuhiro Arita, first originating from the Japanese Expansion Pack. In Japan, this card was released as an Unnumbered Promotional card with different artwork by Ken Sugimori. It was first available through the Trade Please campaign that ran from February 10 to July 31 in 1998. Participants were required to mail a flyer included with copies of Trade Please by Suzukisan to MediaFactory along with any two Pokémon trading cards and a return envelope within the campaign period. Participants could select a "course" detailed on the flyer by writing in the appropriate space. The "A Course" included a Charizard card and a Trade Please! promotional card. The "B Course" included a Blastoise card and the Trade Please! card. The "C Course" included a copy of this card and the Trade Please! card. MediaFactory would then send the two cards from the chosen course to the participant, completing the trade. This print was later reprinted in the Intro Pack and again as part of the Pokémon Song Best Collection CD. The Base Set print was reprinted in the English Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection expansions.
