Mewtwo Strikes Back Donphan Topps Cards


#1

I recently have found somebody trading the Topps Cards. And the Donphan Card said on it “Donfan” like that. So I looked it up and I found one image showing this other spelling and another image showing the correct spelling. So my question is, is the weird spelled one a misprint or what?

The correct spelling of the Pokemon is Donphan.


#3

From Bulbapedia:

One of the cards from Mewtwo Strikes Back names Donphan as “Donfan”, probably due to its trademarked Japanese name and the fact that Gold and Silver weren’t out in North America yet. It was later corrected in the second printing.

Thanks for the knowledge! Didn’t know that…

Thank you I was wondering.
