Release information

This card was included as both a Regular card and a Full Art card in the Burning Shadows expansion, first released in the Japanese Darkness that Consumes Light expansion. The Regular print features artwork by Ken Sugimori, while the Full Art print features artwork by Masakazu Fukuda. Parallel Holofoil versions of the Regular print were awarded to participants of Regional Championships held during the Burning Shadows Season (August-October 2017). This variant has a Regional Championships stamp in the bottom right corner of the artwork. A gold foil stamped "Staff" version was also given to those overseeing the events. A Mirror Holofoil version of the Regular print was later reprinted in the Japanese GX Battle Boost subset and again as one of the Japanese SM-P Promotional cards, awarded to winners of WinterBattle events held at participating Pokémon Card Gym venues across the country between December 8, 2017 and January 31, 2018. The SM-P promotional print also features the Pokémon Card Gym logo in the bottom right corner of the illustration.

The Regular print was reprinted again in the Japanese Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Deck Build Boxes. The SM-P promotional print was awarded again to winners of DeckBuildBattle events held at participating Pokémon Card Gym venues across Japan, which featured different formats each month. This print was available at events using the March format, the Sun & Moon Limited Battle, which allowed cards only from the Sun & Moon Era to be used in decks. Cards from older Eras that were subsequently reprinted in Sun & Moon Era products were also allowed. Most Pokémon Card Gym venues held DeckBuildBattle events using this format during March 2018, but some were held as late as April 5, 2018.

The Regular print and another Full Art print with different artwork by Hitoshi Ariga, were later included in the Japanese GX Ultra Shiny subset. The Regular print was also reprinted in each of the Eevee-GX Starter Sets, in the Tag Team GX Premium Trainer Box, in the Tag Team GX Deck Build Box, and in both Tag Team GX Starter Sets. A new print with different artwork once again by Masakazu Fukuda was released as a Yellow A Alternate card and was awarded to participants of Regional Championships held during the Team Up Season (February-April 2019). A gold foil stamped "Staff" version was also given to those overseeing the events. This print originated from the Japanese Night Unison subset. The GX Ultra Shiny Full Art print was later included in the Hidden Fates expansion.

A Full Art SM-P Promotional card with new artwork by Hideki Ishikawa was available in special packs given out at Extra Battle Day events, held at participating stores across Japan during October and November 2019. Tournaments held as part of these events utilized the Extra Regulation format (equivalent to the Expanded format outside Japan), commemorating the release of the Extra Regulation Box on October 4, 2019. Depending on the venue and places available, people could either register on the day of an event or could enter a lottery via the Players Club website to reserve their place. The application period for events held in October was open between September 17 and 24, 2019, with results announced on September 27, 2019. The application period for events held in November was open between October 11 and 18, 2019, with results announced on October 25, 2019. Each tournament comprised 3 rounds of Swiss between groups of up to 8 people depending on attendance. The ranking of players following the conclusion of the tournament was determined as follows:

  1. Number of match wins;
  2. Difference between number of Prize cards taken and number of Prize cards taken by an opponent over 3 matches;
  3. Number of Prize cards taken over 3 matches;
  4. Head-to-head record;
  5. Rock–paper–scissors.

The overall winner of a tournament was given a promotional pack containing 1 of 3 random Full Art cards. Losing participants as a result of rock–paper–scissors were also given a pack as a consolation prize.
