This article is about a Japanese Pokémon Trading Card Game card which has not yet been officially released in English and, hence, may not be released outside of Japan. As such, this article may contain translated Japanese terms instead of English terms.
Unless you have any Basic Pokémon named Mewtwo on your Bench, flip a coin. If tails, Pikachu does 20 damage to itself.
This card has two prints: the print numbered 038/P has the card ID Z-26-a, the print numbered 044/P has the card ID Z-26-b. The short strip on both prints contain Pokédex information, a brief card summary, and information on the content of the long strip.
This card was available first as an orienteering commemorative card, numbered 038/P, at each Battle Festa 2002 venue, held in Japan between July and August 2002. People who managed to collect at least three stamps by visiting different events held at each venue were given this card. Venues hosting the Battle Festa 2002 were as follows, a number of which also coincided with Battle Road Summer 2002 tournaments:
Sapporo Community Dome, Sapporo on July 20, 2002.
Tokyo International Exhibition Center, Tokyo on July 27 and 28, 2002.
Port Messe Nagoya, Nagoya on July 31, 2002.
Intex Osaka, Osaka on August 3 and 4, 2002.
West Japan General Exhibition Center, Fukuoka on August 11, 2002.
It was reprinted as another P Promotional card, numbered 044/P, with slightly different artwork by the same artist, and was one of six cards available through the Pokémon Happy Adventure Rally 2002. The Rally ran on the JR East Yamanote Line between August 3 and August 18, 2002. The card could be obtained at the booth present at Tokyo Station.
Smash Link and its effect involving Mewtwo is a reference to both's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Mewtwo and Pikachu are depicted in an environment resembling a stage in the Super Smash Bros. series. The e-Reader Pokédex entry for the print numbered 038/P comes from Pokémon Gold, and the entry from the print numbered 044/P comes from Pokémon Silver.
