Release information

This card was included as both a Regular and a Full Art card in the Burning Shadows expansion, first released in the Japanese Facing a New Trial subset. The Regular print features artwork by Ken Sugimori, while the Full Art print features artwork by Megumi Mizutani. The Regular print was reprinted as a Mirror Holofoil card in the Japanese GX Battle Boost subset. The Regular print was reprinted again in the Japanese Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Deck Build Boxes.

Another Mirror Holofoil print, this time a SM-P Promotional card, was awarded to winners of DeckBuildBattle events held at participating Pokémon Card Gym venues across Japan, which featured different formats each month. This print was available at events using the April and May formats. The April format was the Dragon Storm Feature Battle, which allowed only Fire, Water, and Dragon Pokémon from the Sun & Moon Era to be used in decks. At least 6 Pokémon of any 1 type had to be included. Pokémon of non-permitted types that evolved into Fire, Water, or Dragon Pokémon were allowed. Trainer and Energy cards from older Eras that were subsequently reprinted in Sun & Moon Era products were also allowed. Most Pokémon Card Gym venues held DeckBuildBattle events using this format during April 2018, but some were held as late as May 2, 2018. The May format was the Champion Road Feature Battle, which required at least 6 cards from the Champion Road subset to be included in a Standard-regulation deck. All participating Pokémon Card Gym venues held Champion Road Feature Battle events throughout May 2018, with the last events held on May 31. A further reprint of the Regular print was included as part of the Japanese GX Ultra Shiny subset.
