This card was one of four possible Wizards Black Star Promos that people could receive with the purchase of a ticket for the theatrical release of Mewtwo Strikes Back starting November 12, 1999. It has a gold foil stamp in the top right corner that reads "Kids WB Presents Pokémon The First Movie" and features artwork by Ken Sugimori. Unknown quantities of this print erroneously have the gold foil stamp on the opposite corner rotated 180 degrees. In Japan, this print was available as an Unnumbered Promotional card on a two-card insert alongside Super Energy Retrieval in the Pocket Monsters Fan Book, released on May 20, 1997.
It was later reprinted as another Wizards Black Star Promo with different artwork by Benimaru Itoh and was included in the VHS and DVD releases of Mewtwo Strikes Back from March 21, 2000. In Japan, this print was available on an insert in the June 1997 issue of CoroCoro Comic, released on May 15, 1997.
A mail-in prize draw offering additional copies of both Japanese prints was published in the November 1998 issue of CoroCoro Comic, released on October 15, 1998. People wishing to enter the prize draw were required to affix the application ticket on the bottom left of the article page to a postcard and send it to Shogakukan. Two thousand winners were sent a set of four cards mounted on two plain sheets: Mew and the Fan Book print of Mewtwo on one; the CoroCoro print of Mewtwo and Misty's Staryu on the other. The original English print on Japanese card stock was later available in the Japanese VHS release of Mewtwo Strikes Back from February 12, 1999.
The French version of the original print mistakenly translated Mewtwo's name to "Deuxmiaou". The reprint uses the correct "Mewtwo".
