Prior to the introduction of the {{TCG|Modified format}}, this card ran rampant in decks mainly because of the ability to do up to {{tt|140 damage|6 Pokémon and 6 heads equate 120 damage. The effects of two actual Darkness Energy Special Energy cards brought the damage to 140.}} on the second turn provided a deck's setup went smoothly, combined with its zero Retreat Cost. When the first {{TCG|Modified Formatformat}} ({{TCG|Team Rocket}} on) came into play [[2001-02 Modified format (TCG)|in 2001]], this Sneasel was specifically singled out and banned from the format. Later joined by {{TCG ID|Neo Genesis|Slowking|14}}, it would remain banned from the Modified Formatformat until the Neo Genesis set was [[Rotation (TCG)|rotated out]] of the format in the second rotation.
A {{TCG ID|Undaunted|Sneasel|68}} with almost the same artwork was featured in the HS {{TCG|Undaunted}} expansion, with illustration by Aya Kusube, instead of Ken Sugimori.
