Release information

In Japan, this card was available as both Regular and Full Art SM-P Promotional cards. The Regular print features artwork by Ken Sugimori and was given to visitors who purchased at least 10 Shining Legends booster packs in one transaction at participating Pokémon Card Gym venues. This promotion ran from July 15, 2017 for as long as stocks lasted. The Full Art print features artwork by Naoki Saito and was awarded to winners of Shining Legends Shield Game events, held at participating stores between July 15 and 30, 2017 and at select Pokémon Centers between August 1 and 29, 2017. An invitation-only prerelease event was also held at the Dwango Hanzomon Studio, Tokyo on July 2, 2017. The application period for the prerelease ran from June 23 until June 25, 2017; successful applicants were selected by lottery. A final event was held as part of the 2018 Yokohama Champion's League, held at the Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama on September 3, 2017. The Shield Game events operated much in the same way as Limited Format tournaments outside Japan: participants would receive 10 Shining Legends booster packs and a number of basic Energy cards (for free at the prerelease event) and play using a 40-card deck and four Prize cards. The Full Art print was limited to 100 copies. The Regular print went on to be released in English in the Celestial Storm expansion.
