Release information

This card was included in the Gym Heroes expansion as both a Holofoil and Non Holofoil card. The Holofoil print was first released in the Japanese Tamamushi City Gym Theme Deck, while the Non Holofoil print was first released in the Japanese Leaders' Stadium expansion. Both feature artwork by Ken Sugimori.

Erika was reclassified as a Supporter card, and was reprinted in the Cosmic Eclipse expansion with different artwork by Megumi Mizutani, first released as one of the Japanese SM-P Promotional cards. In Japan, this print was given to participants of Mewtwo HR Competitions, Limited Format events held in conjunction with the release of the Remix Bout subset. Competitors received 15 Remix Bout packs and 15 copies each of basic Grass, Fire, Water, Fighting, Psychic, and Darkness Energy cards upon paying the entry fee and were required to construct a 40-card deck comprising solely these cards. Mewtwo HR Competitions were held at participating Pokémon Centers, Pokémon Card Stations, and stores hosting Pokémon Card Gym meetings between July 5 and September 1, 2019. An invitation-only event was also held at the NicoNico Honsha, Ikebukuro, Tokyo on July 4, 2019.
