Trivia

The special illustration rare print is one of numerous cards to feature an illustration that is part of a narrative. Following from the Quaxwell card, the Quaxwell has evolved into a Quaquaval, who is admiring itself in front of a mirror. A soap dispenser designed after Poliwrath can be seen.
