In Japan, this card was initially only available as part of the game Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR! as a GB-exclusive card. It was later printed and made available in the same month as the game's release as an insert with Volume 10 of Pokémon Card Trainers magazine, released in March 2001. The card was subsequently reprinted in Pokémon Web. The English version of this card was released as a Best of Game card at BattleZone events in May 2003. A version that includes a gold "Winner" stamp in the bottom right corner of the artwork was awarded to those who had won a certain number of matches in the event. A Jumbo version of the Winner print was also given out.
