Trivia

  • This card features the Gym series symbol, indicating that it is a promotional addition to the two expansions.
  • During the early years of the franchise, this card was commonly mistaken for Koga's Ninja Trick outside Japan, the Japanese version of which is also commonly mistaken as a promotional card due to the controversial artwork change featuring an omote manji, a symbol which resembles a mirrored swastika.
