Shiny Legendary Pokemon in the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Call of Legends expansion will excite players and collectors alike!
While previous Pokémon TCG expansions have featured many Shiny Pokémon, Legendary Pokémon have stood apart. That changes in the Call of Legends expansion: at last, you can get Legendary Pokémon in their Shiny forms! Fantastic Pokémon such as Groudon and Kyogre, Ho-Oh and Lugia, and Palkia and Dialga all feature gorgeous artwork—and now you can collect and play the Shiny versions of these powerful Pokémon for the first time!
Collectors of Pokémon TCG cards know this is an opportunity that cannot be missed while players of the Pokémon TCG can find plenty of use for these rare Pokémon. Have a look at the more powerful Shiny Legendary Pokémon in the Call of Legends expansion, and find out how you can use them in your deck today.
Shiny Ho-Oh and Shiny Lugia
The Legendary Ho-Oh and Lugia are extraordinary Pokémon, both in appearance and in the firepower they bring to your deck. In Call of Legends, the two cards share several traits: Shiny Ho-Oh (SL5) and Shiny Lugia (SL7) both have 100 HP, an ample amount for any basic Pokémon, and both also deliver two impressive attacks. While Shiny Ho-Oh's Scorching Wing attack is especially potent and delivers 100 damage, Shiny Lugia has the more flexible arsenal. With Linear Attack, you can choose any of your opponent's Pokémon and hit it for 30 damage.
In this era of Pokémon with strong Poké-Bodies and Poké-Powers, advanced players know that having the ability to pound your opponent's Bench is crucial. So, while Shiny Lugia's Hydro Splash attack isn't as powerful as Shiny Ho-Oh's Scorching Wing attack, it delivers good direct hits when necessary.
Whether you're looking for a boost in Fire-type firepower or you need to fill up your Water-type deck, Shiny Ho-Oh and Shiny Lugia can help immensely. And it's certainly worth collecting the cards for their incredible artwork, too!
Shiny Kyogre and Shiny Groudon
Shiny Kyogre (SL6) and Shiny Groudon (SL4) both look entirely different from their regular counterparts. The yellow coloration of Groudon is particularly striking, but both of these awesome cards are worth a collector's time.
For players, it gets even better: both Shiny Kyogre and Shiny Groudon feature devastating attacks. If Shiny Lugia isn't enough to soak your opponent, you can give your Water-type deck even more love with Shiny Kyogre—depending on a coin flip, its Destructive Tsunami attack does either 40 damage to all of your opponent's Pokémon or 40 damage to all of yours! The downside is plain to see, but fortunately, Water-type Legendary Pokémon all feature HP totals that can weather the nastiest of storms.
Shiny Groudon knows how to shake things up, too: its Volcano Stomp attack delivers 80 damage, and either you or your opponent must discard the top 4 cards of your deck. Hedge your bets by playing the Research Record Trainer card (84/95) before attacking—it lets you peek at the next 4 cards in your deck! Once you know what you might lose, you can decide whether Volcano Stomp is worth the risk. One thing's for sure, whether you're ready to play out a battle or you love to collect amazing cards, it's worth tracking down Shiny Kyogre and Shiny Groudon!
More Pokémon Shine Bright!

Players and collectors both now have lots of reasons to admire the Shiny Pokémon in the Pokémon TCG: Call of Legends expansion!
