Card text

All prints
AceSpec.png You can't have more than 1 ACE SPEC card in your deck.
{{{ruletext}}}
Search your deck for a Pokémon (excluding Pokémon LV.X), show it to your opponent, and put it into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterward. If any Luxury Ball is in your discard pile, you can't play this card.
 
Do Nothing  
At the beginning of your turn, flip a coin. If heads, you can do nothing during your turn. If tails, your opponent can do nothing during his or her next turn.


Release information

In Japan, a holographic version of this card was awarded to the champions of the 11th Movie Gym Challenge held in July 2008.

Trivia

The inability to use this card if a Luxury Ball is already in the discard pile mimics the item's rarity in the games: only one Luxury Ball was available in Generation III for free, while others had to be won in Contests or given by Selphy.

Origin

The Luxury Ball is a type of Poké Ball first introduced in Generation III.
