Languages this set is released in

The EX Emerald set is released in English, German, French, Italian, and Portuguese, with cards also available as Reverse Holofoils. The non-holo Uncommons in the German, French, Italian, and Portuguese sets are available with two different codes at the bottom-left; the non-holo Commons in all available languages have three different codes available. It's unknown why the English non-holo Uncommons only have a single distinct code, yet the German, French, Italian, and Portuguese non-Holo Uncommons have two available codes, which is unique to the EX Emerald set. The purpose of these different codes in general is still unknown, but occurred throughout the first halve of the EX era.
