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.

Can you upload an image of the card?
I'm trying... I can't seem to get my image to upload.  I took a pic of the card so I have it as a png and screenshot but it won't accept it here... argh!

We can't access your file through its address on your PC. But if you have that image, try uploading it to http://imgur.com/ and once it is uploaded, post a link to it here so we can have a look.
BTW I converted your answer to a comment so it fits the conversation better, hope you don't mind.
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).
