Release information

This card was released as a Cosmos Holofoil SWSH Black Star Promo and was available in the Brilliant Stars Three Pack Blisters from February 25, 2022. In Japan, it was one of seven S-P Promotional cards available in Pokémon Card Gym Promo Card Pack 7, which was distributed at Pokémon Card Gym venues able to do so from September 2021. The Japanese print is Non Holofoil and features the Pokémon Card Gym logo.

Trivia

  • This card is one of numerous cards to feature an illustration that is part of a narrative. Following on from the scene on the Eevee card, a Glaceon shields the growing flower from the wintry conditions. The scene continues on the Leafeon card.
  • Based on the release schedules of previous Pokémon Card Gym Promo Card Packs, it is likely the Japanese print of this card would have been available alongside the dual Skyscraping Perfection and Blue Sky Stream expansion on July 9, 2021. However, due to the delay of Promo Card Packs 5 and 6 amid COVID-19 restrictions, Promo Card Pack 7 did not become available until September. As a result, this card was officially released first in Taiwan and Hong Kong as a Traditional Chinese-language S-P Promotional card in early August 2021.

Origin

Hail is a move in the Pokémon games that Glaceon can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Shield.
