This card was included in the EX Sandstorm expansion, first released in the Japanese Miracle of the Desert expansion. It was also awarded as a prize to those who attended the Pokémon e-League throughout February 2004. The standard prize is a Cosmos Holographic version of the EX Sandstorm print, and winner versions have a "Winner" stamp in the bottom right corner of the artwork. Jumbo versions of the winner prints were also distributed as prizes. In Japan, it was reprinted as a Holofoil ADV-P Promotional card and was 1 of 2 cards that could be earned by players who accumulated enough points by participating in Point Get Battle side events held at each regional Battle Road Summer 2003 venue during July and August 2003. Players could participate in 1 of 3 battle zones: 30-card deck, 60-card deck, or 60-card double battle, and would receive a number of points depending on the outcome of a battle. Upon reaching the requisite number of points, players could redeem either this card, a Chimecho card, a card box, or bandana.
