Release information

This card was included in the Burning Shadows expansion, first released in the Japanese Darkness that Consumes Light expansion. It was reprinted in Japan as a SM-P Promotional card, available as part of the Midsummer's Pika Pika Alola Festival, which ran from July 22 to September 3, 2017. Customers at participating Pokémon Centers (including the Pokémon Center Online) and Pokémon Stores who purchased five booster packs in one transaction were given 1 of 6 possible promotional cards. This print features the Pokémon Center logo in the bottom right corner of the artwork.



The Bye-Bye Heal attack and card illustration are references to the anime episode Bye Bye Butterfree, in which Ash releases his Butterfree so it can breed. Stun Spore is a move in the Pokémon games that Butterfree can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Sun.
