Release information

In Japan, this card was released several times through a number of tournaments. It was first awarded as a prize to those who participated in and won battles in the DP Tag Battle event at 2007 Spring Battle Roads between March and April of that year. It was then awarded as a prize to the top-ranking players in the One Day Battle event at 2007 Summer Battle Roads between July and September of that year.
It was later awarded at the newly implemented Winter Challenge 2007 events, held between November 2007 and January 2008. Players from each age division who earned a set of three stamps in their battle passport in the knockout-style Arena Challenge were awarded this card. A single stamp was earned by achieving a two-match winning streak; however, a two-match win or a loss at any stage required players to queue for the event again. Attaining seven stamps allowed players to compete on the 'Premier Stage' for a chance to win a Mysterious Pearl promotional card.
It was subsequently reprinted in each of the Collection Packs in April 2009.

Trivia

  • This was the first secret card to be included in an English expansion since EX Holon Phantoms.
  • This is the only English Trainer card to feature a holographic border.

Origin

The name of the card and the inclusion of Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf in the illustration are a reference to the events at the Spear Pillar in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and Pokémon Platinum.
