[Pokémon TCG] Radiant Greninja Comes In With the Snipe (Battle Region [S9a] 025/067)

Scoring a KO with this card is the Pokémon TCG equivalent of "from the logo".

Pokémon TCG Radiant Greninja

When a Pokémon TCG card features one of the biggest fan favorites of them all while also being a card with outstanding gameplay utility, it’s certain to be one of its set’s most sought-after cards. Such is the case with the Radiant Greninja card from the Battle Region [S9a] set.

Like all other Radiant cards, this Radiant Greninja card depicts the Water-type Pokémon’s Shiny form, increasing its value to collectors. To add to its desirability, all Radiant Pokémon come in the unique rarity of K. Finally, Greninja is one of the most popular Pokémon, consistently ranking at or near the top in countless fan polls. Thus, this card is in and of itself a major attraction.

That, however, is just one part of the equation. Radiant Greninja is one of the pre-eminent snipers in today’s Pokémon TCG metagame. Fitting for an attack named “Moonlight Shuriken”, Radiant Greninja deals 90 damage to two of the opponent’s Benched Pokémon for three Energy cards—a great way to pick off the opponent’s defenseless Pokémon stuck on the Bench and steal a march on the opponent.

For all of the reasons detailed, Radiant Greninja will be reprinted as part of the upcoming Chien-Pao ex Battle Master Deck.

The English translation of this card is 046/189 in the Astral Radiance set.

Somewhat surprisingly, the price tag of a Radiant Greninja (Battle Region [S9a] 025/067) card is relatively affordable at just 1,540 JPY (~US$9.95).
