Mewtwo VSTAR gets reprinted and has a great illustration while battling Charizard VSTAR at it as well. The original print came from the Pokemon GO expansion comes to make another variation that is usually paired with Psychic Energy engines like Shadow Rider Calyrex as it requires at least three Psychic Energy to maximize its damage output from Psy Purge up to 270 damage which usually Knocks Out most Pokemon Vs, VSTARs, and VMAXs. Pair it with a Choice Belt and get a Radiant Hawlucha to your bench and you’ll easily dish out a whopping 330 damage! This card specifically is great for mid-game to late game after you’ve set up your Psychic Energy card draw and attach engines. Guess we’ll be seeing more of this Mewtwo VSTAR more in the current Standard Deck meta. Mewtwo VSTAR is currently priced at $103.95 and will continue to rise as we progress further in the year as it’s artwork is paired with Charizard VSTAR as well.

Last but not the least in the latest expansion of Pokemon TCG, Arceus VSTAR is probably one of the best cards to look out for in Crown Zenith. With the ability to search your deck for up to 3 basic Energy cards to any of your Pokemon V would be a great support engine for the Pokemon that require a lot of Energy cards to dish out attacks to your opponents.

If you noticed, all these cards are reprints from latest expansion of Pokemon TCG, but what makes it more in-demand is the artwork that it comes in with – Ultra Gold Full Art prints.
