Release information

A Holofoil print was available in the James Theme Deck in English, and as a separately numbered card to its Non Holofoil counterpart in the Japanese Silver Deck Kit.


Unlike most Dark Pokémon in EX Team Rocket Returns, this card was made as a single-type Darkness Pokémon instead of a dual-type, a trait it shares with the other normally Colorless Pokémon made into Dark Pokémon in this set.


Double Wing Attack's Japanese name is that of Dual Wingbeat, a move later introduced in the Generation VIII Pokémon games that Dragonite can learn via Move Tutor.
