This card was released in the HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion, originating from the Japanese HeartGold Collection. In Japan, it was reprinted as one of the L-P Promotional cards and was awarded to those who won in Pokémon Center Card Free Battle events held at Pokémon Centers during the Autumn of 2009, along with five other cards. This card has a generic Pokémon Center logo in the bottom right of the illustration window. Winners could only select one of the six cards available at each event. It was later reprinted in the Gyarados Half Deck of the HS Trainer Kit.
