Product Images for ‘Legendary Battle Decks’ Featuring Ho-Oh and Lugia!

We now have images of the Ho-Oh and Lugia Legendary Battle Decks!

One deck features 2x Ho-Oh-EX from Dragons Exalted and 2x Suicune from Plasma Blast while the other features 2x Lugia-EX from Ancient Origins and 2x Blissey from Dark Explorers. The decks will be released on May 5th for $19.99.

As I posted before, each 60-card deck will come with 8x foil basic Energy cards, a metallic coin, a deck box, damage counters, and player guides.

The decks are being released by TPCi to capitalize on the release of Gold and Silver Pokemon in Pokemon GO. TPCi is targeting new players and nostalgic fans with this quarter’s wave of Gen II products.

    Japan gets relevant, standard-playable Battle Decks and we get this? :(

    What's the strategic reason behind including Blissey with Lugia? Or Suicune with Ho-Oh? I mean I get that Ho-Oh is the one in charge of the Legendary Beasts, but besides that?

    That Ho-oh is also one of the hardest cards to get from Dragons Exhalted. Its very good and very playable but the low amount of them out there doesnt let it see enough play. We will most likely see a lot more Ho-oh decks surface when these battle decks drop

    Ohyas! A guarantee to obtain Ho-Oh-EX!! Finally!!
    Good matchup IMO, Lugia-EX may be cheaper in card value but it's still playable in Standard and it's one powerful attacker that could fit any deck. Expecting rainbow birb to drop in card value so I can get a few copies for myself! :p
    Disclaimer: I only play the online version of TCG. :)

    Wow, the good versions of each? Wasn't expecting that to happen. I'm not really interested in the Lugia one (unless the coin is really cool) because I already have three copies of Lugia, but none of Ho-Oh, so I'll be getting 1-2 Ho-Oh decks for sure.

    I will be getting this for sure. It's super odd to see two Pokemon from different eras of the TCG being released together like that but I guess Lugia didn't get an EX till Plasma.

    Nope.

    Seems like they will always be out of stock for the ho oh deck
    does this mean that the Ho oh EX will drop down to like 4 buck a piece?

    Are legendary battle decks their own subsets like half decks are do they actually have the set symbol for Dragons Exalted etc?
