Trivia

The Crown Zenith print's artwork is part of a joint illustration with eight other cards from the Galarian Gallery subset: Riolu, Swablu, Duskull, Bidoof, Turtwig, Paras, Poochyena, and Mareep. The nine cards do not follow conventional ordering in any set localization and are instead ordered according to how they compose the larger illustration. In Asia, the VSTAR Universe prints of these cards were always enclosed together in a single pack, colloquially referred to as "god packs", and were difficult to obtain.

Origin

Whimsy Tackle is an attack that first appeared on Slowpoke from HeartGold & SoulSilver. This card's Lost Origin Regular and Crown Zenith Pokédex entries come from Pokémon Sword. This card's Lost Origin Full Art Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Akari is featured in the Lost Origin Full Art print's illustration, who uses a Pikachu in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
