I do not remember when I first saw these pencil, but they were first released in 2013 in Singapore. My first encounter with these was actually the White one that was later released in Canada in a 2-pack with a standard black P205A, when I purchased it in December 2014. This was also the first time I had encountered a P200 pencil with printing, that did not print the model number printed on it.
I finally got a hold of a full set of these in September 2016 from a dealer in Singapore. I ordered them off eBay and received the 5 pencils above. I later ordered another set and the dealer sent them to me in the original packages, which came with a package of Ain 0.5 2B lead.
The original set are in my display cases and the packaged set is on my display board.
This is the Red version of the pencil. As I said above, this set of pencils are the first time I encountered this short style of printed text.
As far as I have seen, this pencil, along with the next two (CSG & GSG), are only available from Singapore.
The Blue version.
The Yellow version. I do like the contrast of the red text on the yellow pencil.
The Pink version available from Singapore, and supposedly from Canada (as P205-P). In June 2016, Pentel Canada announced pink versions of several of their pens and pencils in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (http://pentel.ca/news/16). I have not been able to get one of these, but I believe it should be the same as the Singapore version. As of this post, it still shows as being available on the Pentel Canada website.
The white version from Singapore and Canada. As I said, this pencil was released in a 2-pack, but I have never seen any mention of it on the Pentel Canada website.

Regarding the P205-PSG. I found one of the Canadian ones in its original, bilingual packaging at a thrift store. It says nothing about Breast Cancer, and unfortunately has had a bit of bleaching from light exposure.
Do you still have it in it’s package? Could you send me a picture of the package (front and back)? I did not know how it was sold, as I have never found one for sale, only seen it on the Pentel Canada website.
Awfully sorry about the delayed response.
Here are some pics for you: https://photos.app.goo.gl/qPTDVs49HoRgNL5W6
