Release information

This card was included in the Brilliant Stars expansion with artwork by Teeziro, first released in the Japanese Star Birth expansion. In Japan, a S-P Promotional print with different artwork by Taira Akitsu was one of seven cards available in Pokémon Card Gym Promo Card Pack 9, which was distributed at Pokémon Card Gym venues able to do so from January 14, 2022.[1] This print features the Pokémon Card Gym logo. The Brilliant Stars print was reprinted, alongside a Full Art Secret card with artwork by Kouki Saitou, in the Japanese VSTAR Universe subset. The S-P Promotional print and VSTAR Universe Full Art Secret print subsequently released outside Asia in the special Crown Zenith expansion, the latter becoming part of its Galarian Gallery subset.

Trivia

The Crown Zenith Full Art print's artwork is part of a joint illustration with eight other cards from the Galarian Gallery subset: Swablu, Duskull, Bidoof, Pikachu, Turtwig, Paras, Poochyena, and Mareep. The nine cards do not follow conventional ordering in any set localization and are instead ordered according to how they compose the larger illustration. In Asia, the VSTAR Universe prints of these cards were always enclosed together in a single pack, colloquially referred to as "god packs", and were difficult to obtain.

Origin

Low Kick is a move in the Pokémon games that Riolu can learn via TR. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Sword. Canalave City, as depicted in Pokémon Platinum, is featured in the Brilliant Stars print.
