This card was included in the Evolving Skies expansion with artwork by 5ban Graphics, first released in the Japanese Eevee Heroes VMAX Special Set. It was reprinted as a Full Art SWSH Black Star Promo with artwork by Hasuno and was available in the Jolteon VMAX Premium Collection from December 3, 2021. This product also included a Jumbo version of the Full Art print. In Japan, the Full Art print was released as a S-P Promotional card and was one in a set of three Eeveelution VMAX cards available through the Summer Pokémon Card Campaign.
The Japanese card set was first awarded to the winner of the invitation-only Summer Pokémon Card 1st Battle, which took place on July 9, 2021 and consisted of eight players. Matches in this tournament were Limited Format with four Prize cards, requiring players to construct a 40-card deck using the cards obtained from 15 Skyscraping Perfection booster packs or 15 Blue Sky Stream booster packs. Additional Energy cards and one copy of Hop were also available if required. The tournament was livestreamed on video platforms Niconico and YouTube and offered prizes to those watching. Three key words were displayed over the course of the steam, which were the subject of a quiz held later in the broadcast. Viewers wishing to enter the competition were required to follow the Twitter accounts of hosts Ponyta Ishii, Raichu Umekawa, and Nanapple, all of whom appear on the official Pokémon Card Channel, and tweet an answer with the hashtag #夏ポケカ1stバトル, Summer Pokéca 1st Battle.

One winner would receive the Special Art Promo Card Present, a set of the three Eeveelution VMAX cards, and two winners would receive an Expansion Pack Present, a booster box each of Skyscraping Perfection and Blue Sky Stream.
