Pokémon TCG

The Pokémon Company have shared some more details about the Hidden Fates expansion for the Pokémon TCG, releasing on August 23rd. Alongside the 68 cards from the main set, it includes a sub-set of 94 cards called Shiny Vault, filled with Shiny Pokémon, full-art Trainer cards, and rare Secret cards.

But the thing is, some of those cards are from previous expansions, including some that are not legal in tournaments anymore. That’s why they have a special marker, which indicates that they can be used in tournaments (unlike the original prints). Check out this post for more details about this!
