Pokémon Trading Card Game

The Pokémon Company have announced the latest expansion for the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Champion’s Path. It will be released on September 25th.

Here’s some details:

Embark on an exciting new adventure through the Galar region with the Pokémon TCG: Champion’s Path expansion! In this special expansion, you’ll encounter the region’s many Gym Leaders and the Pokémon partners that battle alongside them. There are powerful Pokémon V like Eldegoss V, Lucario V, Duraludon V, and many others. That’s not all, as you’ll also find massive Pokémon VMAX, such as Drednaw VMAX and Alcremie VMAX. But you’re not the only one on the path to the championship—your rivals are determined to make it to the top as well. Hit the Gyms and blaze your own path with the Pokémon TCG: Champion’s Path expansion!

In Champion’s Path, Trainers will have the unique ability to “recreate” their journey through the Galar region in the Pokémon TCG by collecting various pins featuring Gym logos as well as foil cards representing the partner Pokémon of each Gym Leader—similar to what they’d experience in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games. Key highlights from the set include 11 Pokémon V plus four full-art Pokémon V, three Pokémon VMAX, and one full-art Supporter card. Trainers will be able to discover Venusaur, Lucario, and Incineroar as new Pokémon V—plus Gigantamax Pokémon like Drednaw VMAX and Alcremie VMAX.
