Radiant Pokémon (TCG)

Radiant Pokémon (Japanese: かがやくポケモン Sparkling Pokémon) is a classification of Pokémon cards in the Pokémon Trading Card Game introduced in the Astral Radiance expansion. Radiant Pokémon cards feature Shiny Pokémon and are identified by an exclusive foil in all of its cards. These Pokémon have powerful attacks and Abilities and are always Basic Pokémon.

An example of a Radiant Pokémon

Players cannot have more than one Radiant Pokémon card in their deck. However, the "Radiant" naming is part of the card's name, so one player can have, for example, 4 Gardevoir cards and 1 Radiant Gardevoir card in the same deck. Radiant Pokémon are considered to be Pokémon with a Rule Box.
