It is said that it quietly spends its time deep at the bottom of the sea because its powers are too strong.


This card's Elemental Blast attack was the first in the TCG that required three different kinds of energy to use.


Elemental Blast is a direct reference to Lugia's role as the master of the legendary birds, requiring one energy each of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres's TCG types to use. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Gold.
