Release information

This card was included in the Jungle expansion as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil card, first released in the Japanese Pokémon Jungle expansion as only a Holofoil card. The Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the Base Set 2 expansion. The Non Holofoil print of this card was later reprinted in the Legendary Collection expansion.


Early prints of the Unlimited Holofoil version were printed without the Jungle set symbol. This error was corrected later in the print run.


Mega Punch is a move in the Pokémon games that Nidoqueen can learn via TM01 in Generation I or via Move Tutor in Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald. This card's English Pokédex comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
