Pokédex entry
They steal from people for fun, but their victims can't help but forgive them. Their deceptively cute act is perfect.

Release information

This card is one of the 22 cards first released in August 2011 in the English Emerging Powers expansion before the release of their Japanese prints. In Japan, it was made available as one of the BW-P Promotional cards in a twelve card random pack released during the September 2011 Gym Challenge. It was later included in the English McDonald's Collection 2012 as an exclusive Confetti Holofoil in June 2012.



Knock Off is a move in the Pokémon games that Purrloin can learn via Move Tutor in Black 2 and White 2; however, the Japanese names are different, making this attack and the move in the game unrelated. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Black.
