Release information

In Japan, this card was available as an insert with the September 1997 issue of CoroCoro Comic, released in August 1997. It was later reprinted and reclassified as a Supporter card with updated artwork in the Japanese EX Battle Boost, later released in the English Generations expansion, originating from the Japanese BREAK Starter Pack. This print no longer features Hit Points, and the additional text at the bottom of the card is replaced by the Supporter card rule.

Trivia

  • A translation of the original effect appears in the Pokémon Trading Card Game and has alternate text from the original Japanese promotional card:
All prints
AceSpec.png You can't have more than 1 ACE SPEC card in your deck.
{{{ruletext}}}
Your Active Pokémon is now Confused. Imakuni wants you to play him as a Basic Pokémon, but you can't. A mysterious creature not listed in the Pokédex. He asks kids around the world, "Who is cuter-Pikachu or me?"
 
Do Nothing  
At the beginning of your turn, flip a coin. If heads, you can do nothing during your turn. If tails, your opponent can do nothing during his or her next turn.


  • This was the first card to have "Photo." instead of "Illus." where the illustrator name is traditionally placed. It was also the first to have an image of a real-life person, one of only a handful of cards to do so. The Generations and EX Battle Boost prints lack a "Photo." or "Illus." credit.

Origin

Imakuni? is a singer who sings for Pokémon Card TV commercials.
