Release information

This card was one of two cards available in the Arceus Three Pack Blisters, released on November 4, 2009. In Japan, it was released as a DPt-P Promotional card and available as a Super Rank prize to members of the Pokémon Daisuki Club. To achieve a Super Rank, players had to accumulate at least 3,200 Action Points (AP). As the TCG transitioned into the LEGEND Era in Japan, the card was reprinted as a L-P Promotional card, which also required 3,200 AP to earn. Due to the relatively short timeframe in which to accumulate the requisite number of points, many members would have been awarded the card after the transition, making the DPt-P print considerably rarer than the L-P print. The DPt-P print can be distinguished by the grey borders and "LV. 61" designation next to the name of the Pokemon.



Hypnoblast is an attack that first appeared on Rocket's Mewtwo from Gym Challenge. Darkness Aura's effect is inspired by the relationship between Darkrai and Cresselia. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Platinum.
