Trivia

The illustration on the SWSH Promotional print portrays the same scene as the Crown Zenith print of Mewtwo VSTAR, but from a different angle.

Origin

The SWSH Promotional print depicts Charizard with a whitish-blue tail flame, which according to several of its Pokédex entries, indicates it is furious. The SWSH Promotional print also shows Mewtwo, Diglett, and Tangrowth.
