This card was included in the Diamond & Pearl expansion with artwork by Masakazu Fukuda, first released in the Japanese Space-Time Creation expansion. It was reprinted in POP Series 6 with different artwork by the same artist. The Japanese version was available as part of the Trade Please DP event held at venues hosting the 25th Next Generation World Hobby Fair in January and February 2007. Visitors could trade any 1 Pokémon card (including International cards and Japanese cards with a classic reverse) with attendants present at the Pokémon booth for 1 of 8 promotional cards at random. Promotional cards, Trainer cards, and Energy cards were specifically excluded from the trade. It was reprinted again in Japan with another new artwork by the same artist as part of a Meiji Chocolate campaign in July 2007.
Whirlwind is a move in the Pokémon games that Staravia can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Diamond.
