This card was released as a promotional card. The English release of this card came with both the Arceus Poster Pack and Arceus Poster Box, the latter of which also included a Jumbo version of the card. In Japan, the DPt-P print was distributed at the theatrical release of Arceus: To a Conquering Spacetime. Three other prints were also released as part of the Movie Commemoration Random Pack with illustrations done by manga artists. These illustrations were also used as part of the Pokémon Card Design Contest in which through several Shogakukan magazines, fans were provided a blank outline of the Pokémon and invited to design the most interesting illustration. The submission periods varied across the publications, the earliest beginning on February 28, 2009; the latest ending on April 24, 2009. The winning illustrations were released as promotional cards in July 2009, with at least one complete set given to the overall winners. Another reprint was also released with new artwork by Natsumi Nishiyama, the winner of the Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine illustration contest, which was an original drawing as opposed to the pre-made drawings of the other contest.
