Release information

In Japan, a special oversized promotional print of this card was produced for purchasing booster packs from the Pokémon Center. This print has the Pokémon Card Game LEGEND logo in the bottom left of the illustration and the Legends logo below it. The backside of the card featured Ho-Oh LEGEND with the same style of stamp.

Trivia

  • This card's Elemental Blast attack is identical to the attack of the same name on the Lugia ex from EX Unseen Forces, which in turn is based on the first Lugia card from Neo Genesis.
  • Although Lugia is Psychic/Flying in the games, it is depicted here as a Water-type Pokémon.
  • On the card's Pokédex entry, a typo has the word It spelled with two Is, making it say IIt instead of It.
  • Along with Ho-Oh LEGEND, this is the only Pokémon LEGEND card to depict a single Pokémon, to have a single type, and to only give one Prize Card for being Knocked Out.

Origin

This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon SoulSilver.
