Today’s Pojo Pokemon Card of the Day review takes a look at the majestic Lugia from the Neo Genesis set!

Number: 9/111
Rarity: Holofoil Rare
Evolves From: N/A (Basic Pokemon)
Type: Colorless
HP: 90
Weakness: Psychic x2
Resistance: Fighting -30
Retreat Cost: 2 colorless

Attack: Elemental Blast – FWL – Discard FWL to do 90 damage.  

We first reviewed this card on Pojo when it came out in 2002.  I love seeing those 22 year old reviews, especially Pokepop’s!  This card was basically Charizard’s Base Set equivalent. It was always more of a collectors card than a playable card.  That one attack is too costly, and too difficult to build up and keep going.  

Rating: 2.0 out of 5.


Lugia Neo Genesis is a must-have for any Pokemon collector.  It is one of the most popular and valuable Pokemon cards of all time. Its stunning artwork and shimmering foil make it a true collector’s item. You just can’t build a competitive deck around it. 

We would love more volunteers to help us with our Card of the Day reviews.  If you want to share your ideas on cards with other fans, feel free to drop us an email.  We’d be happy to link back to your blog / YouTube Channel / etc.  😉
