Release information

This card was released in the English Fossil expansion as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil card, originating from the Japanese Mystery of the Fossils as only a Holofoil card. The Non Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the English Legendary Collection expansion.


Although this Pokémon is level 17, Gastly does not evolve into Haunter until level 25.


Nightmare is a move later introduced in the Generation II Pokémon games that Haunter can learn. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
