The Movie Commemoration VS Pack: Sky-Splitting Deoxys was first released on July 17, 2004 exclusively to the Pokémon Center stores in Japan, and was later distributed elsewhere on August 14, 2004. It features many Pokémon and characters that appeared in Destiny Deoxys, such as Deoxys, Pokémon native to LaRousse City, and Pokémon belonging to the various characters present in the movie.
In addition to the normal contents of Half Decks in Japan (a rulebook, damage counters, status counters, and a custom coin), this Half Deck includes the first and only lenticular image card released in Japan, Sky-Splitting Deoxys. The artwork, illustrator, and attacks change when it is seen at a different angle. The card will change into either the Attack Forme, or Normal Forme, which were featured in this deck, as well as the Defense Forme distributed in the second issue of Pokémon Wonderland magazine published on the same day.
The Half Deck features the first card for a Generation IV Pokémon: Munchlax. Munchlax is also featured on the coin included with the Half Deck.
