Pokémon: The First Movie, also known as Mewtwo Strikes Back!, was the first time that promotional cards (Wizards of the Coast's "Black Star" promos) were widely released to a public audience and from then on, the company issued quite a few Black Star promos for a variety of different reasons and events. These two, alongside a copy of Electabuzz and, of course, a copy of Pikachu, were stamped with a gold leafing that denoted that these cards were a promotional tie-in with the first Pokémon film. Furthermore, according to this item's auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:

The first Pokémon movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back (also aptly known as Pokémon: The First Movie), was devoted to these Pokémon, the genetically engineered Mewtwo and its clone Mew. Offered in this lot are 2 Promotional cards that were received while watching the movie in the Movie Theater; Mewtwo and Dragonite. The artwork was done by Ken Sugimori and Yoshinao Aoki.
