Release information

This card was included as a Regular card, a Full Art ultra rare card, and a special illustration rare card in the Scarlet & Violet expansion, first released in the Japanese Violet ex expansion. The Regular and Full Art prints feature artwork by GIDORA, while the special illustration rare print features artwork by kantaro. The Regular print was also included in the Obsidian Flames expansion.

A Reverse Holofoil version of the Regular print was used as a promotional card for 2023 Championship Series Regionals. This print features the "Pokémon Trading Card Game Championships: Regional" logo in the bottom right corner of the card artwork. A version of the card with a "Staff" stamp was handed out to event staff.

In Japan, a Mirror Holofoil SV-P Promotional version of the Regular print with the Pokémon Card Gym logo was awarded to winners of New Set Battle events held at participating Pokémon Card Gym venues from January 20, 2023. These events required players to use at least four Pokémon cards from the Scarlet ex or Violet ex expansions in their decks.[1] This requisite was expanded to include cards from the Triplet Beat subset in events held from March 10 up until April 13, 2023. The Regular print was later reprinted in the Japanese Metal Melmetal ex Start Deck and Shiny Treasure ex subset; for the latter, a special illustration rare print with new artwork by aspara was also included. This special illustration rare was later included in the Paldean Fates expansion outside Asia. The Regular print was reprinted again in both of the Japanese Starter Deck & Build Sets.
