Quick question... I am NOT an expert. My son is collecting and we found a Monferno Level 20 that says "Stage 1 Evolves from Monferno". Is this a known error? Fake card? Thanks

The card.

I added the link to your question to make it easier for people to see :)

From what I can tell, this is fake. Were it just the one error I would be inclined to say it's a misprint, but if you compare it to  this card:

You'll see that the Colourless and Water energy symbols are incorrectly sized, and the Water energy looks entirely different. It's most likely a fake, or else a very unfortunate misprint.
Thank you for your help!!
Astronautical, you should have answered.
Okay.
And you're welcome!

It also has the font of a fake card, and the description text isn't the same (it's thinner).
