Release information

This card was included in the Sun & Moon expansion with artwork by Ken Sugimori, first released in the Japanese Sun & Moon Starter Set. A Full Art print with new artwork by Sanosuke Sakuma was released as one of the Japanese SM-P Promotional cards, given to those who purchased a booster box of the Japanese Strength Expansion Pack Sun & Moon, starting January 27, 2017 while supplies lasted. The Regular print was reprinted in the Japanese Tapu Bulu-GX Enhanced Starter Set. Both Half Decks of the Sun & Moon Trainer Kit: Lycanroc & Alolan Raichu, released April 21, 2017, included reprints of the Regular print. The Full Art print was later released in the English Guardians Rising expansion.

The Regular print was reprinted in Japan in the Shining Legends subset and again as one of the Japanese SM-P Promotional cards. The SM-P print was 1 of 9 cards available in special packs sent to official Event Organizers in Japan starting August 2017 and features the Event Organizer logo in the bottom right corner of the illustration. The English Shining Legends expansion later included the print from its Japanese equivalent. The Japanese Solgaleo-GX & Lunala-GX Legendary Starter Set and Forbidden Light expansion included another reprint of the Regular print.

In Japan, participants of the Sky-Splitting Charisma Shield Game, held at the Pokémon Card Station at the Tokyo Bay Pokémon Center on June 1, 2018, were given 5 Trainer cards to use in their decks if they so wished. These included 2 unnumbered SM-P Promotional copies of the Regular print of this card, 2 unnumbered SM-P Promotional copies of Sophocles, and 1 unnumbered SM-P Promotional copy of Ultra Ball. The Shield Game operated much in the same way as Limited Format tournaments outside Japan: participants would receive 15 Sky-Splitting Eminence booster packs and 14 copies of each basic Energy card upon entry and play using a 40-card deck and four Prize cards. The event was limited to 24 entrants. Hau was reprinted in the Celestial Storm expansion with new artwork by TOKIYA, first released in the Japanese Sky-Splitting Charisma expansion.

Four variants of the original Sun & Moon print were included in the Sun & Moon Trainer Kit: Alolan Sandslash & Alolan Ninetales. The cards within the kit are individually numbered so the decks can be ordered for use in a practice duel, with the numbers being in a gray or blue circle at the bottom right of the card to tell the decks apart. Each deck contains two of the prints, both sets being numbered 19 and 23.

The Sun & Moon Regular print was reprinted in each of the Japanese GX Starter Decks. The Celestial Storm print was reprinted in the Japanese Super-Burst Impact expansion, in each of the Eevee-GX Starter Sets, and in both Trainer Battle Decks.
