Trivia

Initial copies of the Next Destinies print have the graphic for Stage 2 Pokémon to the right of the card name. This was eventually corrected to the Stage 1 graphic, but not until late into the print run, making the erroneous version much more common.

Origin

Nasty Plot and Foul Play are both moves in the Pokémon games that Zoroark can learn. This card's Black & White, BW Promotional and Extra Regulation Box Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon White. The Next Destinies print features the Shiny version of Zoroark.
