Release information

This card was included in the Fusion Strike expansion, first released in the Japanese Blue Sky Stream expansion. In Japan, it was reprinted as a Holofoil S-P Promotional card and was available as part of the Dragon Pokémon V Get Challenge campaign, which began on July 9, 2021. For every ten Skyscraping Perfection booster packs or every ten Blue Sky Stream booster packs purchased in one transaction at participating stores, customers would receive a Promo Card Pack containing one of five possible cards. Customers who were able to purchase a booster box of either Skyscraping Perfection or Blue Sky Stream via the Pokémon Center Online were also given one Promo Card Pack per purchase.[1] This print has the campaign logo in the bottom right corner of the artwork. The campaign ran for as long as stocks lasted. It was reprinted in the Japanese Start Deck 100.



Shell Trap and Heat Crash are both moves in the Pokémon games that Turtonator can learn, the latter via TR. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Shield.
