This card was first released as part of the Dragons Exalted expansion with an illustration by Kanako Eo, originating from the Japanese Dragon Blade expansion. It was later reprinted in Japan as one of the BW-P Promotional cards with new artwork by Naoki Saito and given away with the purchase of either a Garchomp Half Deck or Hydreigon Half Deck to those present at the Garchomp•Hydreigon Cup, part of the Spring Tournament held nationwide in Japan during April 2012. It was also given away in the same manner to those present at the Battle Carnival Spring 2012 events held at four locations in May and June 2012. This print was released as one of the English BW Black Star Promos released in February 2013 in the Plasma Storm Stage 1 Blisters, using the Pixel Cosmos Holofoil paper that was standard at the time. A reprint using the Smooth Cosmos Holofoil paper that was standard during the XY Series was included in the Plasma Storm Rerelease Blisters.
