In addition to the Lugia V card being visually stunning, it is also a valuable pull for Pokemon TCG players. The attack “Read the Wind” lets players set up their hand, offering a “discard one to draw three” benefit. Meanwhile, “Aero Dive” may be costly at four Energy cards, but it allows players to deal 130 damage without skipping a turn, discarding Energy, or taking recoil damage.

Because the Silver Tempest set isn’t a special edition, players should have plenty of opportunities to pick up booster packs at local card shops and retail stores. However, it never hurts to be cautious, and those looking for Lugia V Alternate Art cards may want to consider pre-ordering booster boxes ahead of release.
