  • Although both English and Taiwanese 2008 Special/Limited Editions use the card format and artwork from the Japanese 2006 Rainy Season Edition, they also include a number of other cards not included in that wave, though with artwork of the same style, such as later-released Super Moves and Hidden Dinosaurs, plus most Dinosaurs previously released yet not in that wave. This art is either original or from possible but ultimately unused cards from the 2006 Rainy wave.
    • Most Super Moves and several Normal Moves found in both this edition and the Kakushin 6th Edition share the same artwork, even those cards found only in the English/Taiwanese expanded versions of the original 2006 Rainy Season Edition, implying that these artworks either already existed or were borrowed back to the Japanese version for the later Kakushin wave.
  • The Alpha Dinosaur cards included in this wave were in the Japanese version only available by a special card exchange offer, before different cards for them were released in the last Japanese wave.
