For a while now, the Pokémon Trading Card Game has been focusing solely on Pokémon X and Y, the last original release in the Pokémon video game series. Now, with the launch of Pokémon Sun & Moon, it’s time for the Pokémon TCG to play catch up.
Coming 2017, players can dive right into the Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon expansion that’ll bring not only Alolan region Pokémon, but also the game’s new starter Pokémon, Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio. Players will also be able to find Legendary Pokémon such as Solgaleo-GX and Lunala-GX. These Legendary Pokémon-GX brings attacks that are so devastating, they can only be used once per game – much like the Z-Move found in the latest game.
In addition, there are so many more never before seen Pokémon coming to the new expansion, as well as more ways to battle than before. In total, there’ll be 40 new Pokémon to collect, as well as Alolan Pokémon and the aforementioned Pokémon-GX. There’s also a new card design to reflect the Alolan region in all its glory.
The Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon expansion will be available for purchase at all participating stores at the start of 2017.
