Release information

In Japan, this card was released as an Unnumbered Promotional card with artwork by Ken Sugimori and was available on a two-card insert alongside Brock's Onix in the March 1998 issue of CoroCoro Comic, released on February 15, 1998. It was reprinted in the Japanese Hanada City Gym Theme Deck with new artwork by the same artist. This print was later included in the Gym Challenge expansion, having been previously reprinted in the Japanese Leaders' Stadium expansion.

A mail-in prize draw offering another copy of the original Japanese print was published in the November 1998 issue of CoroCoro Comic, released on October 15, 1998. People wishing to enter the prize draw were required to affix the application ticket on the bottom left of the article page to a postcard and send it to Shogakukan. Two thousand winners were sent a set of four cards mounted on two plain sheets: Mew and Mewtwo on one; another Mewtwo and Misty's Staryu on the other.
