Release information

This card was released in Japan as an unnumbered Jumbo BW-P Promotional card as part of the 2013 BEAMS × Pokémon campaign, which began on April 20, 2013. Customers who purchased products from participating BEAMS stores received either this card or a Jumbo Mewtwo-EX card for as long as stocks lasted. This print features a 'BEAMS' stamp in the bottom right corner of the illustration window, and the BEAMS logo on the bottom left corner of the card.


This card was only released as a Jumbo card and is therefore not legal to use in tournaments or official events.


Quick Attack and Thunderbolt are both moves in the Pokémon games that Pikachu can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
