4.0 out of 5 stars It's real, just be careful, April 19, 2011

Despite what most of the reviews state, this IS real. But it is NOT legal for play in any game of Pokemon TCG. Here's the facts about it:

1) It was available multiple times as a promotional giveaway:
2005 at the Nintendo World Store for those who played the Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness demo.
2006 at Space Center Houston as part of the 10th Anniversary Celebration.
2006 at E3 as a very limited distribution later that year.

2) It's large, like the box topper promotional cards. Therefor it is NOT legal in any official events and can't even be placed in a standard deck.

I've been collecting Pokemon for nearly 12 years and like to keep all releases well documented, as I do with other TCG products I collect. Though this is not a standard Pokemon card (it is rather large, has insane stats and is not tournament legal) it's a pretty cool collector's item giving a glimpse into the importance of Shadow Lugia in it's respective game.

I can not vouch for the legitimacy of the product each individual vendor sells, but the product itself is real and does exist. Just make sure you know what you're buying.
