This card was included in the Diamond & Pearl expansion with artwork by Ken Sugimori, first released in the Japanese Space-Time Creation expansion. It was also included in the Empoleon Half Deck of the Japanese Entry Pack. A Holofoil DP-P Promotional version was available in Japan as part of the Trade Please DP event held at participating Pokémon Centers from July 8, 2007 for as long as stocks lasted. Visitors could trade any 1 Pokémon card (including International cards and Japanese cards with a classic reverse) with attendants for 1 of 3 promotional cards at random. Trainer cards and Energy cards were specifically excluded from the trade. This card was reprinted in Japan as another DP-P Promotional card with different artwork by Atsuko Nishida as part of a Meiji Chocolate campaign in July 2007. The Diamond & Pearl print was later reprinted in the Manaphy Half Deck of the Diamond & Pearl Trainer Kit. A promotional Reverse Holofoil variant of the Diamond & Pearl print with a "Diamond & Pearl" stamp was also released as part of a Burger King promotion in July 2008.
