Pokémon TCG

Yesterday, the latest English set for the Pokémon TCG was announced: Sun and Moon – Unified Mind, releasing on August 2nd. It features the following:

  • Over 230 cards
  • 8 brand-new TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX (including Mewtwo & Mew-GX, Rowlet & Alolan Exeggutor-GX, Espeon & Deoxys-GX, Garchomp & Giratina-GX, Umbreon & Darkrai-GX)
  • 9 more Pokémon-GX
  • More than 25 Trainer cards and 2 new Special Energy cards

Here’s some pictures:

Also, The Pokémon Company shared an interview with Atsushi Nagashima (Director), about this new expension. Click here to check it out! Here’s an excerpt:

The concept behind Mewtwo & Mew-GX is, in a sense, a destination for TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX. Mew, thought to be the ancestor of all Pokémon, combined with Mewtwo, one of the toughest Pokémon, have exceptional power. They can also use any GX attack thanks to their Perfection Ability, which allows them to use the attacks of any Pokémon-GX or Pokémon-EX on your Bench or in your discard pile (assuming they have the necessary Energy to use each attack). We’ve designed the card so that every Pokémon-GX that has appeared can be put into the deck.
