Release information

In Japan, this card was 1 of 5 that could be obtained as part of the Communication Evolution Campaign, which began in April 1999. Participants who mailed an Omanyte card along with a copy of Bill's PC to MediaFactory during the campaign period would in turn receive copy of this card in the mail.



  • The requirement of Bill's PC for the campaign led to the 5 available cards to become known colloquially as Masaki promos in reference to Bill's Japanese name.
  • Cards from the Extended Sheets are printed on glossy card stock, while those distributed as part of the Communication Evolution Campaign are printed on regular card stock.
  • Although the Communication Evolution Campaign cards are based on the concept that certain Pokémon have to be traded to evolve, Omastar's pre-evolved form, Omanyte, does not require to be traded in order to evolve in the Pokémon games.


This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Blue.
