Pokémon Players Who Pre-Order Pokémon Legends: Arceus in Japan Will Get a Stunning TCG Reward

The recent Pokémon Presents livestream gave fans an in-depth look at Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and it's safe to say they're getting excited. With new Pokémon and Hisuian forms added, Pokémon Home compatibility confirmed, and an exciting list of confirmed Pokémon quickly building, there's a lot to be excited about.

However, there's a long time to wait until the January 2022 release date. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have a neat custom Nintendo Switch Lite arriving with their release, but there's little on offer for Arceus fans. Some people expect to see a similar deal with Pokémon Legends: Arceus and the OLED Switch, but nothing is confirmed at this point.

Pokémon Players Who Pre-Order Pokémon Legends: Arceus in Japan Will Get a Sweet TCG Reward

If you play Pokémon Legends: Arceus early enough, there's a sweet Hisuian Growlithe kimono on offer via Mystery Gift, but we don't know of any physical pre-order bonuses outside of Asia at the moment.

However, Japanese fans have an added bonus if they pre-order the game. There's a sweet Arceus V TCG card that comes with all physical sales of Legends: Arceus available in Japan, and it looks stunning.

If you want to use it in your games, then here's a rough translation of what its attacks do, courtesy of tunu1223 at PokéGuardian:

CC - Trinity Charge

  • Search your deck for up to 3 basic Energy cards and attach them to your Pokémon V in any way you like. Then, shuffle your deck.

CCC - Power Edge 130

Really it's not that useful in your games, but you're not buying for that, are you? The full-art artwork is stunning, and it's a card perfectly suited to many collectors out there.

We're currently unsure exactly how the card will be distributed, but it appears to be included with any physical copy of Pokémon Legends: Arceus sold in Japan.
