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, Pikachu, Turtwig, Paras, 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

Slight Intrusion is an attack that first appeared on Nincada from Roaring Skies. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Y.
