Release information

This card was included in the English Arceus expansion, first originating from the Japanese Advent of Arceus expansion. In Japan, a Cosmos Holofoil DPt-P Promotional print of this card was awarded as a prize to the top winners in Advent of Arceus Commemoration Rally events during July 2009. This print has the Advent of Arceus set logo on the bottom right of the illustration.



The "mino" in Cloak Party's Japanese name is a reference to the Japanese names for Burmy and Wormadam. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Platinum.
