Pokémon Trading Card Game: Scarlet & Violet—Obsidian Flames Debuts Type-Shifted Tera Pokémon ex

The Pokémon Company International has unveiled the next expansion in the bestselling Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG), Scarlet & Violet—Obsidian Flames, which will launch at participating retailers worldwide beginning Aug. 11, 2023.

The upcoming Scarlet & Violet—Obsidian Flames expansion will introduce type-shifted Tera Pokémon ex to the Pokémon TCG, where certain Tera Pokémon ex cards will feature a different Energy type. For example, Trainers will see Charizard ex as a Darkness type versus its usual Fire type, as well as Tyranitar ex as a Lightning type versus its usual Fighting type or Darkness type. When attacking, type-shifted Tera Pokémon ex will use the same Energy as their usual type; however, they will have a different Weakness that corresponds with their shifted type. These cards will also follow the same rules as normal Pokémon ex — when Knocked Out, the type-shifted Tera Pokémon ex gives up two Prize cards instead of one.

Noteworthy cards from the expansion include:

  • 15 Pokémon ex and six Tera Pokémon ex
  • 12 illustration rare Pokémon
  • Six special illustration rare Pokémon and Supporter cards
  • 12 ultra rare full-art etched Pokémon ex and Supporter cards
  • Three hyper rare gold etched cards

Scarlet & Violet—Obsidian Flames will be available in booster packs, Elite Trainer Boxes and special collections at Pokémon Center online and participating retailers worldwide. Equipped with two additional booster packs and one additional illustration rare style promo card featuring the Pokémon Center logo, the Scarlet & Violet—Obsidian Flames Pokémon Center Elite Trainer Box is available for preorder now for Trainers in the US, Canada, and UK.

In addition, ahead of the release of the tabletop version, Trainers will be able to play with Scarlet & Violet—Obsidian Flames digitally via the Pokémon TCG Live app for iOS, Android, macOS and Windows devices on Aug. 10, 2023. When logging in, the Scarlet & Violet—Obsidian Flames Battle Pass will reward players with a new deck, featuring Darkness-type Charizard ex. Players can also unlock an additional premium deck featuring Toedscruel ex by redeeming Crystals, earned by completing daily quests.

And finally, the celebration kicks off in full with Legendary Collection: 25th Anniversary Edition, loaded with classic booster packs like Invasion of Chaos, Pharaoh’s Servant, and the set that started it all: Legend of Blue Eyes White Dragon.

Maze of Memories

On March 10, get ready to explore hidden archives of Dueling’s history! Maze of Memories delivers incredible new cards inspired by some of the most celebrated characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga and animated series, like Yugi Muto, Jaden Yuki, Yusei Fudo, and Yusaku Fujiki,

You can return it to your Extra Deck to Summon it again later, and when you do, you’ll Special Summon a monster as big as Level 9 from your Graveyard to take its place! Baronne de Fleur is incredible on its own, but it’s also the perfect combo for the new Accel Synchro Stardust Dragon: use it to Synchro Summon Baronne de Fleur on your opponent’s turn and shield it from all of your opponent’s activated effects!

Go Classic with the Pokémon Trading Card Game

During the 2023 annual Pokémon Day livestream, the classic trading card game is getting a new release called Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic. The “premium” Pokémon set is “designed to last a lifetime” and contains everything you need to play.

The release features preconstructed decks and gameplay accessories that have been “uniquely designed to be both beautiful and functional to deliver a polished battling experience.”

The set is a collaboration between The Pokémon Company, Creatures Inc., and design firm nendo, and a premium Pokémon TCG set that is designed as a staple playset for any Pokémon TCG fan.

  • Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic

The new release features:

Three Preconstructed Decks:

  • Iconic cards from the history of the Pokémon TCG, including Base Set Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise, headline three specially constructed 60-card decks featuring Grass, Fire and Water Energy types.
  • Alongside classic cards, brand-new cards such as Ho-Oh ex, Lugia ex and Suicune ex are included, allowing players to form new strategies.
  • Except for Basic Energy cards, cards included in Pokémon Trading Card Game Classic cannot be used for tournament play. However, these static decks are perfect for challenging friends and family to a Pokémon TCG battle at any time.

  • Made from aluminum, the damage counters are moderately weighted to prevent falling over when vertically stacked.
  • Three-dimensional, ring-shaped Poison and Burn markers are also included in the toolbox to allow players to easily identify these Special Conditions.

Elegant Card Sleeves and Deck Boxes:

  • Featuring a Poké Ball motif, three kinds of card sleeves are included to protect the three preconstructed decks.
  • Card sleeves have been purposely designed in a black-and-white color scheme to maintain visual focus on the card artwork.
  • Three deck boxes featuring the Grass, Fire and Water Energy symbols match the preconstructed decks and allow for easy storage of sleeved cards when not in use
