Release information

A prototype Pokémon Leagues were given the Trainer Deck B, which included this card, before the Base Set's release. All cards in this deck have a red border and "Trainer Deck B" printed on the back. This card was included in the Base Set, first released in the Japanese Expansion Pack. It was reprinted in the Base Set 2 expansion. A special W Wizards stamped version of the Base Set 2 print was released with the March 2000 issue of Top Deck Magazine.


Some copies have Wartortle in the evolution box.


Withdraw and Bite are both moves in the Pokémon games that Wartortle can learn. This card's English Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Red and Blue, though it is slightly reworded. The Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Red and Green.
