This card was included in the English EX Ruby & Sapphire expansion, first released in the Japanese Torchic Constructed Starter Deck. It was later reprinted in the Latios Half Deck of the English EX Trainer Kit. This print lacks the e-Reader Dot Code strip and features a normal border following the cessation of TCG support for the e-Reader starting with the EX Hidden Legends expansion.



Headbutt is a move in the Pokémon games that Electrike can learn via breeding. This card's e-Reader Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Ruby.
