- Cards included in the video game are from the real world Generation I sets "Base Set", "Fossil", and "Jungle" with the addition of some Japanese promos and the Japanese "vending machine set" cards.
- A sequel, called Pokémon Card GB2 Here Comes Team Great Rocket!, was made, but it was never released in English.
