This card was first released as one of the English XY Black Star Promos, available in the Hoenn Collection with artwork by Akira Komayama. It was later reprinted in the Primal Clash expansion, first released in the Japanese Gaia Volcano expansion, with new artwork by the same artist. An exclusive Sheen Holofoil print of the English card was released as a preview card in the Collector Chest on November 14, 2014.
