This card was included in the Base Set with artwork by Mitsuhiro Arita, first released in the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was rerelased in Japan as an Unnumbered Promotional card with different artwork by Ken Sugimori as part of the Trade Please campaign that ran from February 10 to July 31 in 1998. Participants were required to mail a flyer included with copies of Trade Please by Suzukisan to MediaFactory along with any two Pokémon trading cards and a return envelope within the campaign period. Participants could select a "course" detailed on the flyer by writing in the appropriate space. The "A Course" included a Charizard card and a Trade Please! promotional card. The "B Course" included a Blastoise card and the Trade Please! card. The "C Course" included a copy of this card and the Trade Please! card. MediaFactory would then send the two cards from the chosen course to the participant, completing the trade. This print was later reprinted in the Intro Pack and again as part of the Pokémon Song Best Collection CD. The Trade Please and CD prints have the Pikachu Records logo in the place of an expansion symbol. The promo artwork would later be reused in the Bulbasaur Half Deck from the Intro Pack.
The Base Set print was reprinted in the Base Set 2 and Legendary Collection expansions. The Base Set print was later rereleased in the Celebrations expansion's Classic Collection for the Pokémon 25th Anniversary. This print features the 25th Anniversary logo in the bottom right corner of the artwork and lacks Wizards of the Coast from the copyright information. In Japan, it was reprinted as part of the Promo Card Pack 25th Anniversary Edition with a red and gold "25th" logo in the bottom right corner of the artwork. Both prints are Confetti Holofoil and have etching similar to Full Art cards.
In the Scarlet & Violet Series, this card was reprinted in Holofoil with its original Base Set artwork in the Venusaur & Lugia ex deck of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic. This reprint lacks a regulation mark and is thus not legal for tournament play.
