Release information

In Japan, this card was available as an insert with the Official Card File, released in June 1997. The English version of the card was one of four possible cards that one could receive by buying a ticket to the cinema showing of Mewtwo Strikes Back. The English version also has a gold foil stamp in the top right corner that reads "Kids WB Presents Pokémon The First Movie".


  • The card's Pokédex entry contradicts the anime episode Showdown in Dark City. In that episode, the Electabuzz species are depicted as becoming enraged at the color red, whereas this card's Pokédex entry states that Electabuzz likes red.
  • An unknown amount of the theatrical release of this card has the gold foil stamp on the opposite corner.


Light Screen and Quick Attack are both moves in the Pokémon games that Electabuzz can learn.
