Release information

This card was first released as part of the Extended Sheet 3 of the Vending Machine cards. It was later reprinted in the Green Deck of the Quick Starter Gift Set, and again in the Pokémon Web expansion.


The Japanese name of this card's attack, kitsunebi, can also be translated as "will-o-wisp"; Will-O-Wisp, however, it is known as onibi in Japanese. Although both Japanese terms refer to will-o'-the-wisp, onibi are considered to be human souls with unfinished business, while kitsunebi is considered to be caused by kitsune playing tricks on travellers.


This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Blue.
