Release information

This card was originally released in the Diamond & Pearl expansion with artwork by Ken Sugimori. In March 2007, a Cosmos Holofoil variant of this print was one of the cards available in the US 2007 Spring Collector's Tins as a special sneak preview before the actual release of the expansion. It was subsequently released outside the US in Special Edition Blister Packs later that year. This Holofoil variant was released again in the Classic Trio Boxes in January 2009, as well as being made available in several European countries as part of various Summer tour events taking place between July and October 2009. A promotional parallel foil variant with a "Diamond & Pearl" stamp was also released as part of a Burger King promotion in July 2008. In Japan, the card was reprinted as a promotional mini card as part of a 7-Eleven Poké Ball Lottery campaign in March 2007. This version, measuring 4.5cm × 6.5cm, was randomly packaged with certain 7-Eleven products in select stores.
The card was later reprinted as a DP Black Star Promo with different artwork by Kagemaru Himeno. It was released in June 2007 in Diamond & Pearl Blisters. The Japanese version was released through a Meiji Chocolate promotion in February 2007. It was reprinted again in POP Series 6 with different artwork by Kagemaru Himeno, the Japanese version available through a trade event at the 25th Next Generation World Hobby Fair in January 2007. Cosmos Holofoil variants of the POP Series 6 print were released in June 2008 in Starter Blister Packs, and again in August 2008 in the Diamond & Pearl Collection. The card was reprinted yet again in POP Series 8 with different artwork by Kagemaru Himeno, the Japanese version available through a McDonald's promotion in May 2007.
