Rare Candy was reprinted again during the Sun & Moon Series as part of the {{TCG|Sun & Moon}} expansion with new artwork by [[Toyste Beach]], first released in the Japanese {{TCG|Sun & Moon Starter Set}} and {{TCG|Premium Trainer Box}} simultaneously on December 9, 2016. This print was subsequently available as both numbered and unnumbered Holofoil {{TCG|SM-P Promotional cards}} as part of two Japanese events. The numbered print, 025/SM-P, could be obtained as a victory award for players participating in the Pulverizing Pancake Battle at the Welcome Festa, held at the Sunshine City Convention Center in East Ikebukuro, Toshima, Tokyo on January 14, 2017. It could also be obtained as a victory award for players participating in the Pulverizing Pancake Battle 2 event at the 2017 Osaka Champion's League, held at MyDome Osaka, Osaka on February 18 and 19, 2017 and at the 2017 Miyagi Champion's League, held at Sunfesta, Sendai on April 1 and 2, 2017. The Pulverizing Pancake Battle 2 event was only held on the second day at each Champion's League venue. Both events comprised a Trading Card Game segment and a Video Game segment, and required a pair of players to enter together. The segments were not concurrent, therefore individuals could participate in both segments if they so wished, so long as each member of the pair participated in different segments. Players would receive 1 copy of the numbered print for every 1 win in any segment, with a limit of 4 copies per person. Each numbered print also featured a [[List of other event distributions in Generation VII#Pulverizing Pancake Battle Rare Candy|serial code]] used to redeem a Rare Candy in Japanese region copies of [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]]. The top four pairs in terms of overall number of wins would progress to the single-elimination finals. At the Welcome Festa only, the top three pairs at the end of the event were each awarded an unnumbered copy of this card featuring a foil stamp of their overall position, presented in a Perspex case.

Release information

This card was included in the EX Sandstorm expansion with artwork by Ryo Ueda, first released in the Japanese Miracle of the Desert expansion. It was reprinted in the EX Emerald expansion with the same artwork, and in the EX Holon Phantoms (Holon Phantom in Japan) and POP Series 5 sets with new artwork by the same artist. Another artwork also by Ryo Ueda was used in the Great Encounters expansion, first released in the Japanese Moonlit Pursuit and Dawn Dash expansion, and later reprinted in POP Series 8.

Rare Candy was later reclassified in Japan as an Item card during the HeartGold & SoulSilver Series, though the English Trainer cards did not adopt this naming convention until the Black & White Series. The Unleashed expansion featured new artwork by Noriko Hotta, which was previously released in the Metagross Deck of the Japanese Leafeon vs Metagross Expert Deck, and the Japanese Reviving Legends expansion featured yet another new illustration by Shizurow.

Rare Candy was later reprinted in the Dark Explorers expansion with new artwork by Ryo Ueda, first released in the Japanese Dark Rush expansion. This print brings the card effect in line with an errata issued at the start of the Black & White Series. It was later included in the Japanese Hydreigon and Garchomp Half Decks. This card was reprinted as one of the Japanese BW-P Promotional cards, available as part of a ten card random pack released during the June 2012 Gym Challenge. It was reprinted again in Japan as part of the Master Deck Build Box EX, released on September 14, 2012, and the Black Kyurem-EX and White Kyurem-EX Battle Strength Decks. The Plasma Blast expansion featured Rare Candy as a Regular card, and as a Secret card with new artwork by Ayaka Yoshida. These prints originated from the Japanese Blastoise + Kyurem-EX Combo Deck and the Megalo Cannon expansion, respectively.

The XY Series brought an additional reprint of Rare Candy with new artwork by Toyste Beach, included in the Primal Clash expansion, first released in the Japanese Gaia Volcano expansion. This print was reprinted as a Mirror Holofoil print as one of the Japanese XY-P Promotional cards, available as part of a twelve card promotional pack awarded to those who participated in the Pokémon Card Gym tournaments from the month of May 2015 through the month of July 2015. This print features the Pokémon Card Gym logo. The Gaia Volcano print was later reprinted in the Japanese M Master Deck Build Box Power Style and M Master Deck Build Box Speed Style, the BREAK Starter Pack, and as a Mirror Reverse Holofoil for the Premium Champion Pack.

Rare Candy was reprinted again during the Sun & Moon Series as part of the Sun & Moon expansion with new artwork by Toyste Beach, first released in the Japanese Sun & Moon Starter Set and Premium Trainer Box simultaneously on December 9, 2016. This print was subsequently available as both numbered and unnumbered Holofoil SM-P Promotional cards as part of two Japanese events. The numbered print, 025/SM-P, could be obtained as a victory award for players participating in the Pulverizing Pancake Battle at the Welcome Festa, held at the Sunshine City Convention Center in East Ikebukuro, Toshima, Tokyo on January 14, 2017. It could also be obtained as a victory award for players participating in the Pulverizing Pancake Battle 2 event at the 2017 Osaka Champion's League, held at MyDome Osaka, Osaka on February 18 and 19, 2017 and at the 2017 Miyagi Champion's League, held at Sunfesta, Sendai on April 1 and 2, 2017. The Pulverizing Pancake Battle 2 event was only held on the second day at each Champion's League venue. Both events comprised a Trading Card Game segment and a Video Game segment, and required a pair of players to enter together. The segments were not concurrent, therefore individuals could participate in both segments if they so wished, so long as each member of the pair participated in different segments. Players would receive 1 copy of the numbered print for every 1 win in any segment, with a limit of 4 copies per person. Each numbered print also featured a serial code used to redeem a Rare Candy in Japanese region copies of Pokémon Sun and Moon.
