Release information

In Japan, this card was released as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil ADV-P Promotional card at participating 7-Eleven stores as part of the Pokémon Fair campaign, which ran from June 25, 2003 until stocks lasted. Customers who purchased a bottle of Coca-Cola Vanilla, Sprite Classic, Ambasa Sour White, Fanta Fruit Punch, or Fanta Melon Soda were given one of 21 possible cards. The English release was made available at Target snack bars with the purchase of an Icee or Arctic Blast. A Holofoil version was later available in one of the four EX Deck Tins, released on October 25, 2004.


The Holofoil version of this card does not have an area for the dot-code strip, whereas the Non Holofoil version has both its area and a dot-code strip.
