Release information

This card was included in the Ancient Origins expansion, first released in the Japanese Bandit Ring expansion. In Japan, it was reprinted as a Mirror Reverse Holofoil in the Premium Champion Pack. It was reprinted in the Japanese Premium Trainer Box, utilizing the XY Era Trainer card layout instead of the newly introduced Sun & Moon Era layout. The reprints later included in The Best of XY subset and the Ultra Sun Deck Build Box in Japan also use the old layout.

Trivia

  • This Stadium card has a similar effect to Platinum Broken Time-Space, although limited to the Grass-type.
  • It was announced in July 2017 that this card was to be banned from all sanctioned Pokémon TCG tournaments using the Expanded format as it was ruled to create an unbalanced playing environment. The specific concerns were:
It enables many dangerous strategies with Grass Pokémon.
