Release information

This card was included in the English Arceus expansion, first released in the Japanese Advent of Arceus expansion. It was also included in the Japanese Arceus LV.X Grass & Fire and Lightning & Psychic Decks. In Japan, a Cosmos Holofoil DPt-P Promotional print of this card was awarded as a prize to participants of the Advent of Arceus Release Commemoration events during July 2009. This print features the Advent of Arceus expansion logo on the bottom right of the illustration. A Cosmos Holofoil version was also later released as one of the DP Black Star Promos, exclusively in French. It is possible that this card and Ultimate Zone only received French promotional versions due to the exclusion of the Arceus expansion in France and their interaction with Arceus cards, which were released in the French Supreme Victors expansion in the form of a sub-set.
