Release information

This card was included in the Sword & Shield expansion, first released in the Japanese V Starter Set Lightning. In Japan, it was reprinted as a Holofoil S-P Promotional card and was one of two cards participants could choose to receive upon entry into the 2020 Aichi Champion's League, held at the Aichi International Exhibition Center, Tokoname on December 21, 2019.[1][2] Participants could only select one card per entry. This print features the Championship Series 2020 logo in the bottom right corner of the illustration. It is likely the card would have been available at subsequent Champion's League meetings scheduled for the 2019-2020 season, but those events were canceled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3][4]

A Cosmos Holofoil version of this card was included in the French exclusive Greedent V Box.



This card features Morpeko in its Full Belly Mode. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Sword.
