Today, the final set of 2022, Silver Tempest, will be released. With one of the best Trainer Galleries we have seen all year, which includes several nostalgic chase cards with incredible art like the Lugia V alt art, this set will no doubt impact the market going into the new year. Before that happens, however, we’ll take one last look at the Lost Origins booster and see how they have been performing after almost two months of its release.

Giratina V (Alternate Full Art)
Shinji Kanda is one of the most unique artists in the Pokemon TCG, despite only working on card art for the game since Brilliant Stars. In his latest work, Giratina V can be seen gliding through a seriously psychedelic background. If you are a fan of Shinji Kanda’s art style, you will also want to look out for the Hypno (#43) that is also included in the Lost Origin booster.

Aerodactyl V (Alternate Full Art)
This Aerodactyl V takes us right back to the prehistoric era of the Pokemon world. While the flying predator soars high above the land, several ancient Pokemon can be seen far below. With the long-necked Tropius towering above the Bastiodons, and the Rampardos stampeding in the far corner, this card art really gives off Jurassic Park vibes.

Rotom V (Alternate Full Art)
What a health and safety inspector might consider a fire hazard, Rotom considers paradise! Fans of the Legends Arceus game will know that Rotom has several forms based on the appliances bought from the Ginkgo Guild. Although it’s pretty cool to see the little Pokemon turn into a fridge or a washing machine, what I really want to see is a Coffee Machine Rotom… now that would come in handy!

Pikachu VMAX (Trainer Gallery)
We’ve been spoilt when it comes to the Pikachu Trailer Gallery cards, with three different variations coming with Lost Origin. The most valuable of these, however, is the Pikachu VMAX themed on the Japanese promo given out with the CoroCoro magazine. The English version includes Red standing in front of the yellow mascot, ready to unleash the full power of his Gigantamax form.

Galarian Perrserker V (Alternate Full Art)
In this artwork, we see a very proud-looking Perrserker showing off his four golden bottle caps. With Perrserker being the evolution of Galarian Meowth, this could be a reference to an old episode of Pokemon, Episode 96, where James uses his collection of bottle caps to convince villagers that Meowth could use the Pay Day move to make them rich.

Pikachu V (Trainer Gallery)
The Pikachu V card from the Trainer Gallery, illustrated by Ryota Murayama, shows a very calm-looking Pikachu, with a very lost-looking Red in the background. This card has climbed to the higher end of the Lost Origin market over the last month, no doubt for the focus on everyone’s favourite yellow mascot.

Girantina VSTAR cards
The Girantina VSTAR cards are among the most valuable cards of the Lost Origin set, with all three versions achieving positions at the higher end of the Lost Origin market. This includes the Gold Secret Rare, the Rainbow Rare and its standard version. The illustrations for these cards have been credited to ‘5ban Graphics’ group, who have been responsible for many card art pieces starting back with the Black & White era of the Pokemon TCG.
