Release information

This card was released in the Japanese Tapu Bulu-GX Enhanced Starter Set featuring artwork by Ken Sugimori. It was printed in English in the Burning Shadows expansion as a Regular and Full Art card, originating from the Facing a New Trial subset in Japan. The Full Art print features artwork by Sanosuke Sakuma. The Regular print was later reprinted in the English Shining Legends expansion and the Japanese Shining Legends subset. The Regular print was reprinted again in the Japanese Solgaleo-GX & Lunala-GX Legendary Starter Set and Ultra Moon expansion.

In Japan, participants of the Sky-Splitting Charisma Shield Game, held at the Pokémon Card Station at the Tokyo Bay Pokémon Center on June 1, 2018, were given 5 Trainer cards to use in their decks if they so wished. These included 2 unnumbered SM-P Promotional copies of this card, 2 unnumbered SM-P Promotional copies of Hau, and 1 unnumbered SM-P Promotional copy of Ultra Ball. The Shield Game operated much in the same way as Limited Format tournaments outside Japan: participants would receive 15 Sky-Splitting Eminence booster packs and 14 copies of each basic Energy card upon entry and play using a 40-card deck and four Prize cards. The event was limited to 24 entrants. The Regular print was reprinted again in 5 of the GX Starter Decks as well as in the Tag Team GX Premium Trainer Box.
