Release information

Neo Series

This card was included as a Trainer card in the Neo Genesis expansion with artwork by Keiji Kinebuchi, first released in the Japanese Gold, Silver, to a New World... expansion.

Black & White Series

Super Rod was later released as an Item card with a completely different effect in the Noble Victories expansion with new artwork by 5ban Graphics, first released in the Japanese Red Collection. It was reprinted as a Tinsel Holofoil in the Dragon Vault, first released in the Japanese Dragon Selection subset.

XY Series

Super Rod was reprinted again with new artwork by Toyste Beach in the BREAKthrough expansion, first released in the Japanese Noivern BREAK Evolution Pack. It was later reprinted in the Japanese BREAK Starter Pack.

Sun & Moon Series

During the Sun & Moon Series, Super Rod was reprinted in the Japanese Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Deck Build Boxes, a set of competitive-play focused products that reprinted popular and useful cards that people used in recent tournaments. The print retained the XY Series layout for Trainer cards.

Scarlet & Violet Series

Super Rod was included as both a Regular card and a hyper rare in the Paldea Evolved expansion, first released in the Japanese Snow Hazard expansion. Both prints feature new artwork by Toyste Beach. The card received a slight text change to include the phrase up to, in order to give players the option to take fewer than the maximum number of cards. In Japan, the Regular print was reprinted in the Ruler of the Black Flame Deck Build Box, in both Terastal Starter Sets, the Venusaur & Charizard & Blastoise Special Deck Set ex, the Shiny Treasure ex subset, and in both Starter Deck & Build Sets.

The BREAKthrough print of Super Rod was reprinted in Holofoil for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic, although it uses its Scarlet & Violet Series text. This reprint lacks a regulation mark and is thus not legal for tournament play.
