Release information

In Japan, twenty copies of this card were first given to Yuuki Kawamura, one of the overall winners of the Pokémon Card Game Illust Artist Contest. It was subsequently available on sheet eighteen of Expansion Sheet 1. There appears to be no discernible difference between the two prints; both are glossy and have a rarity symbol. It was reprinted as a non-glossy card in the Red Deck of the Quick Starter Gift Set.

Origin

Mega Punch and Hydro Pump are both moves in the Pokémon games that Poliwrath can learn, the former only via TM01 (Generation I) or Move Tutor (Generation III), and the latter only as a Poliwhirl. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Blue.
