Trivia

  • The Japanese "Snap" print has a camera graphic where an expansion symbol would usually be.
  • The text on the bottom right of the "Snap" print reads: Best Photo Contest Winners Prize Card.
  • In print runs after the 1st edition and shadowless print runs the collection number "6/102" is printed too far to the left.

Origin

Dragon Rage and Bubble Beam are both moves in the Pokémon games that Gyarados can learn, the latter only in Generation I via TM11. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
