==Release information==
This card was released as a promotional card. In Japan, it was awarded to the third place winners of the Neo Spring Road in 2000. The card was reprinted in 2001, awarded to the third place winners of World Championship Secret Super Battle. The card was reprinted onto the e-Series design in 2002 and came in two versions, depicting either a male or female trainer. These versions were awarded to the third place winners of the Spring Battle Road in 2002.
==Trivia==
*Unlike previous tournament winner cards, the trophy cards produced between 2000 and 2002 had the name of the winner and the region in which the tournament was held. It is debated that this makes them rarer than those released in 1997-1999, as each one is unique.
*The 2002 print features both male and female trainer versions, taking inspiration from the choice first given to players with the release of {{game|Crystal}}.
*The double star rarity was no longer used with the 2002 print.
