Release information

In Japan, this card was 1 of 3 SM-P Promotional cards that could be earned by participating in Pokémon Card Station events starting July 15, 2018 through to June 30, 2019. Eligible events included the Kangaskhan Tag Battle, a 2 on 2 format conducted in pairs; the Sylveon Girls Battle, a format limited to female competitors; and the Weekday Tournament, a mini Swiss-format competition with 4 or more competitors. The Kangaskhan Tag Battle and Sylveon Girls Battle were typically held on one day during weekends, while the Weekday Tournaments were held three times every Monday-Friday. The Pokémon Card Stations were initially only present at the Tokyo Bay and Osaka Pokémon Centers; a new station opened at Pokémon Center Nagoya on November 16, 2018. The Pokémon Card Game logo is featured in the bottom left corner of the illustration.


This card is one of numerous cards to feature an illustration that is part of a narrative. Following on from the scene on the Chespin card, the Inkay reciprocally spurts ink into the Chespin's face, while the Litten looks on in surprise.


Ink Spit is an attack that first appeared on Inkay from Ancient Origins. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Y.
