The eleventh expansion to the Sword & Shield series expansion for The Official Pokémon Trading Card Game is due out on 9th September, and we can exclusively reveal one of the brand new cards that you'll desperately want on your deck, courtesy of The Pokémon Company International.

This new Giratina card is called 'Giratina V' and the art is, honestly, stunning. This intimidating-looking Giratina is one your opponents should be scared of, as it comes with a pair of deadly abilities. So while your opponent is gawping at the design, you'll be able to turn the tide in your favour.

As with other V rule cards, if your opponent does manage to beat Giratina down, then they'll be able to pick up 2 prize cards.

Here's the official description of the card, along with an even better look at its gorgeous design:

"Defy the rules with Giratina V, the Renegade Pokémon! Use the power of Abyss Seeking to look at the top 4 cards of your deck, take 2, and send the rest to the Lost Zone! Then pierce the veil with Shred to do 160 damage, regardless of any effects on the Defending Pokémon!"

The Lost Origins expansion is already out in Japan, and it'll be here in just over a month! But this is one card you'll want to seek out when the expansion launches next month.
