This card was included in the Burning Shadows expansion with artwork by Mitsuhiro Arita, first released in the Japanese To Have Seen the Battle Rainbow expansion. A SM Black Star Promotional print with different artwork by the same artist was one of the Prerelease promos for Burning Shadows, available in the Burning Shadows Prerelease Kit. A print with a gold foil "Staff" stamp was one of four possible cards given to those overseeing the event. The SM Black Star Promo version was later released as a Japanese SM-P Promotional card; one of nine possible cards included in promotional packs awarded to participants of Pokémon Card Gym tournaments during August and September 2017. This print features the Pokémon Card Gym logo in the bottom right corner of the illustration.
