KillNet prevede nuovi attacchi: Italia è preda facile

Through a press release, The Pokémon Company has unveiled new information on the new Pokémon TCG expansion dedicated to Scarlet and Violet: let’s find out all the details together

For each Pokémon game, a new expansion of the most well-known and loved Trading Card Game ever follows (along with Magic and Yu-Gi-Oh, yes it’s true). And just in the past few hours, The Pokémon Company International has revealed other details on the expansion of Scarlet and Violet, to be published worldwide on March 31, 2023. The expansion brings Pokémon-ex in an updated key, a game mechanic based on Pokémon with high HP that show off wonderful attacks and abilities. Unlike Pokémon-EX from the Black and White series and XY, which were all Basic Pokémon, Pokémon-ex from the Scarlet and Violet series can be Basic, Stage 1, or Stage 2. But their power comes at a price: when they finish KO they take two Prize cards.

Inspired by the Teracristal phenomenon from the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet video games available on Nintendo Switch (here our review!), the expansion introduces the Pokémon-ex Teracristal, distinguished by specially embossed illustrations that highlight their teracristal. These new cards follow the same rules as Pokémon-ex, but take no damage while on your Bench. In addition to card design updates from the Pokémon TCG, Scarlet & Violet includes specially imprinted full-art cards of Pokémon depicted in natural poses and vibrant colors, as well as rare illustration cards and rare special illustration cards that can feature an entire chain Pokémon Evolution. These cards highlight Pokémon in their natural environment and offer a closer look at their unique personalities.
