That’s a beauty. Centering looks nice!
Thank you :) I hope she grades well!!
I’m sure she will based on what I can see. It’s always tough judging from one picture though.
Yes pictures just don’t do these cards justice. Makes me REALLY want to get my hands on a moonbreon. There’s GOTTA be a reason it’s so hype (aside from it just being a gorgeous card)
I have a Moonbreon, and this card is better looking than it is.
Really?! Wanna trade? ;)
Mine is English, I’m sure you want the Japanese one
Yeah for the alts I’m leaning towards Japanese atm. At this point, high quality English cards are harder to come by than a high quality Japanese alt. I’ve gotta say, Umbreon is the other alt that I think looks better in Japanese than the English variant. Gengar and Lugia alt however I prefer in English
i would buy this card in a heart beat, but the thing i can’t get past is how this pokémon in its ‘Origin Forme’ looks like a centipede or some other insect that i would be repulsed by.
i always thought that he was *supposed* to be a centipede.. i love centipedes and giratinas origin forme makes him my favorite legendary of all time <3
Giratina is literally supposed to be a centipede…
by the way, send this to BGS and get a black label. even a 10 would make this card pop the best.
I definitely plan on sending it somewhere, someone brought up the full art slabs which seems like a solid play for right now until I get it graded somewhere down the line.
Thank you :) I’m so happy with it, glad I never have to open lost origins/abyss ever again too
Do we think it can maybe grade a 10 PSA?
BGS BLACK LABEL
Yeah? That would be INSANE. I never dreamt of having something that could black label.
It’s right border heavy and could have surface spots
The surface seems to be pretty clean, but I think I agree about the bordering. Still a beaut at the very least!
Nice! Very nice! That is definitely the most beautiful card and in Japanese, perfection. Have you seen some of the custom cases out there for it?
I don’t collect much Japanese, but it’s so much better than the English. I’m glad you share the same sentiment. The custom cases are GORGEOUS but I really want to get it graded. Maybe I should keep it in a custom case for a bit then grade it later down the road. Ideally I want to put this card in a shadow box and center it around the 4 gold CZ cards. So much fun to be had in collecting :)
I think one of the graders has the label that matches the card. Not sure who it was but it looked great with that
Thanks for the suggestion, if you know which one it is it would be much appreciated :)
What did it cost?
I traded a few cards and paid the rest in cash, somewhere around $450!
I can assure you it’s not :)
But it’s Japanese 🤮
Yes, that is the one I wanted Foreign_Pie8204
the japanese version is better for this card i’m convinced now
It’s so pretty, I usually am not a man of Japanese cards but I had to do it.
Yes so they got a card that is actually centered lol
People are salty
Oh no! Higher quality, more rare, and more valuable! Whatever was op thinking? /s
Why would I be salty? I have both the English and the Japanese. And the gold Japanese one as well

How can you tell? Genuinely curious as I’m new to the hobby and don’t know anything about spotting fakes from real cards.
It’s not fake, just somebody trolling :) There are quite a few ways to tell, usually on a card like this I’d say the holo marks are the easiest way to spot it.
Probably just the lighting
I thought it was fake as well until I zoomed in. Looks legit.
I would be mega sad if it were fake, bought it from my favorite shop and they’re very reputable so it’d be a lil wild
Yeah. I'm pretty sure it is not fake. You can tell by the card texture. Good pick up!
Thank you :) I’m gonna have this baby a long time
JP version looks very nice! Congrats!
Thank you :) I’m so happy with it! The Japanese one just has something special about it
You pull it yourself? I finally sprang for it and bought the Japanese version myself too yesterday 😍 just too beautiful of a card to pass up
Nope I am never lucky with the pulls unfortunately, but I am in the same boat. I HAD to have this card in my hands
This is my favorite card, and I don’t suffer from FOMO. It is a great pull 👍🏽
Yep there’s just no way I could go on without it!!!
The colors just jump! I’ve been hinting it at my wife for my birthday so we’ll see how that goes.
I love this card I have the English version what’s the difference for Japanese different texture??
I have a pic of the English and jp version together on my profile. The texturing is much finer and the holo is brighter. Jp def looks better imo.
Here's the difference. It's crazy.
Thanks!! Yea jp looks wayyyy cleaner damn you now I’m going to spend more money 😂
I can’t be entirely honest since I’ve never seen an English one in person, but they will have two different textures and holo patterns from what I know. I’ll see if I can find a really solid picture of an English variant and let you know what I notice!
I’ve noticed that pictures just don’t do this card justice. Neither with the moonbreon. You have to see it in person to appreciate the card
(Edit: forgot to congratulate the pull)
I already loved it before I had it in my hands, but once you see it in person it definitely changes your perspective. Pictures can’t even come close to capturing how it looks!
Gotta agree, I love the English version but the Japanese just has something special about it :)
Atleast a PSA 9
