Release information

This card was released as a SWSH Black Star Promo and was available in the Polteageist V Box from May 1, 2020. A Jumbo version was also included in the box. In Japan, it was one of seven S-P Promotional cards available in Pokémon Card Gym Promo Card Pack 2, which was intended to be distributed at Pokémon Card Gym venues throughout March, April, and May 2020; however, these events were among those to be canceled from February 29, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] Despite this, it is evident venues still received packs from The Pokémon Company, hence external knowledge of the cards at the time, and that some venues still distributed them in some way. Events officially resumed from May 23, 2020[2] and packs were distributed until July. The Japanese print features the Pokémon Card Gym logo.



Mind Bend is an attack that first appeared on Celebi from Skyridge.
