Release information

This card was released as a promotional card in Japan. Little is known as to how it was distributed, though it is believed that it was a lottery prize awarded to members of the Pokémon Daisuki Club during the summer of 2004. The exact number of copies in existence is unknown, but due to the rather exclusive items that the Club are known to produce, it is estimated to be very limited. The card was never released in English.
