Release information

In Japan, this card was first awarded to the top 3 competitors from the Junior League and the Open League in the Victory Battle event at each Battle Festa venue, held at Intex Osaka, Osaka on December 15, 2013, and at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center, Tokyo on December 23, 2013. To progress to the final 'Climax Stage' at the Battle Festa, players had to accumulate as many consecutive wins at the 'Premier Stage' as possible, a prerequisite of which was 4 consecutive wins at the initial 'Challenge Stage'. When the allocated time for the 'Challenge Stage' ended, the top 4 players in terms of consecutive 'Premier Stage' wins were eligible to enter the knockout 'Climax Stage'.

The card was awarded again to the top 3 competitors in each league at each Lizardon Mega Battle event, held at the Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama on the weekend of May 3-4, 2014, and at Intex Osaka, Osaka on the weekend of May 17-18, 2014. The final round was held on the second day of each weekend, with the top 16 players from each league eligible to compete for entry into the Japan Champion Finals, held at Pokémon Center Osaka on the weekend of June 7-8, 2014.

For Battle Festa 2014, this card was awarded to the top 3 competitors from the A League and the B League in the Victory Battle Gym MIX event. All entrants began at the 'First Stage', and could progress to the 'Second Stage' by winning 2 consecutive battles. Players at the 'Second Stage' became eligible to enter the knockout 'Climax Stage' by achieving another 3 consecutive wins. The Battle Festa 2014 was held at five locations across Japan: ACT CITY Hamamatsu Exhibition Event Hall, Shizuoka on October 26, 2014; Sunshine City Bunka Kaikan, Tokyo on the weekend of November 1-2, 2014; Kumamoto City Distribution and Information Hall, Kumamoto on November 9, 2014; Intex Osaka, Osaka on November 16, 2014; and Dream Messe Miyagi, Sendai on November 24, 2014.

At the Rayquaza Mega Battle, this card was awarded to the top 3 competitors from the A League and the B League. Players could qualify for the final stage in two ways. One way was to place in the top 3 at the Rayquaza Gym Battle or the Rayquaza Pokémon Center Battle events leading up to the tournament, thereby becoming eligible for the main Rayquaza Mega Battle qualifying phase. The top players at this stage then progressed through to the final stage. The second way was to participate in the Rayquaza Mega Battle Last Challenge qualifier held concurrently with the main qualifying phase. Players who won 2 consecutive battles at the 'First Stage' progressed to the 'Second Stage', and a further 3 consecutive wins at the 'Second Stage' granted entry to the Rayquaza Mega Battle final stage. Players knocked out at the main qualifying phase could also participate in the Last Challenge qualifier. The Rayquaza Gym Battle was held between March 1 and March 25, 2015 at participating Pokémon Card Gym venues. The Rayquaza Pokémon Center Battle was held at participating Pokémon Centers across two periods for different age categories: between March 28 and April 4, 2015 (all ages), and between March 29 and April 5, 2015 (elementary school students). The Rayquaza Mega Battle and Last Challenge qualifier were held at the Nagoya Trade & Industry Center, Nagoya on May 5, 2015; at Makuhari Messe, Chiba on May 9 and 10, 2015; at the Sapporo Factory, Sapporo on May 23 and 24, 2015; and at Intex Osaka, Osaka on May 31, 2015. The top 12 players from each league were then eligible for entry into the Japan Champion Finals, held at Pokémon Center Osaka on the weekend of June 27-28, 2015.

The card was awarded in two competitions at Battle Festa 2015, one of which was the CoroCoro Challenge. Entrants began at the 'First Stage', and could progress to the 'Second Stage' by recording 1 win. The top 3 competitors at each Pokémon Card Gym Battle Festa 2015 Pre-Battle, held nationwide in Japan between October 1 and 31, 2015, earned themselves an 'Advantage Path', allowing them to advance straight to the 'Second Stage'. Players at the 'Second Stage' could progress to the 'Premier Stage' by winning 2 consecutive battles. Players at the 'Premier Stage' became eligible to enter the Swiss round 'Climax Stage' by achieving another 3 consecutive wins. The top 3 players in the Elementary School League and Open League at the end of the 'Climax Stage' were awarded these cards. The second competition was the Victory Battle, which consisted of a morning and afternoon session of Swiss rounds. The top 2 players in each session could then progress to the single-elimination playoffs. The top 3 players in the A League and the B League were awarded these cards. With the exception of a CoroCoro Challenge stamp on those awarded as part of that event, both sets of cards are identical. Battle Festa 2015 was held at four locations across Japan: Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Exhibition Hall, Hiroshima on November 3, 2015; Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama on November 7, 2015; Intex Osaka, Osaka on November 15, 2015; and Nagoya Trade & Industry Center, Nagoya on November 29, 2015.

At the Kamex Mega Battle, this card was awarded to the top 3 players from the A League and the B League competing in the Victory Battle event. Unlike the concurrent Kamex Mega Battle event, in which players could bypass the 'First Stage' by participating in prior competitions, all players began at the 'First Stage' in the Victory Battle event and could progress to the 'Second Stage' by recording 1 win. Players at the 'Second Stage' could advance to the 'Premier Stage' by winning 2 consecutive battles. Players at the 'Premier Stage' became eligible to enter the single-elimination 'Climax Stage' by achieving another 3 consecutive wins. The Kamex Mega Battle was held at the Nagoya Trade & Industry Center, Nagoya on May 5, 2016; at Intex Osaka, Osaka on May 15, 2016; at Makuhari Messe, Chiba on May 21 and 22, 2016; and at the West Japan General Exhibition Center, Kitakyushu on May 29, 2016.

The final iteration of this card was awarded to the top 3 players of the Junior, Senior, and Open Leagues competing in the main 20th Anniversary Battle event held as part of the 20th Anniversary Festa. All competitors began at the 'First Stage' and could progress to the 'Premier Stage' by achieving 2 consecutive wins. Players could then advance to the single-elimination 'Climax Stage' by winning 3 more consecutive battles. The 20th Anniversary Festa was held at Toki Messe, Niigata on October 10, 2016 and at the Nagoya Trade & Industry Center, Nagoya on October 23, 2016.

Each print has a foil stamp featuring the logo and location of the event it was awarded at as well as the placing of the recipient. All are unnumbered XY-P Promotional cards.
