An Early Look at Cards from the Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces Expansion

The array of Ancient and Future Pokémon is expanding yet again! With the introduction of formidable new Pokémon, the resurgence of ACE SPEC cards, and stunning artwork, the Scarlet & Violet Temporal Forces expansion is here to dazzle. Released last March 22, 2024, this expansion boasts over 160 cards. Join us for an exclusive sneak peek at some of the thrilling cards revolutionizing the Pokémon Trading Card Game in this exciting expansion.

Iron Crown ex – 206/162 – Special Illustration Rare

Grace, might, and righteousness—each encapsulated within this rare and captivating illustration showcasing Iron Crown ex in a solemn stance amidst cherry blossom-laden trees. Nagimiso’s portrayal of the formidable Paradox Pokémon, accompanied by the moon, is truly remarkable. Yet, Iron Crown ex’s regal power transcends mere visual allure; its Cobalt Command Ability augments damage from your Future Pokémon’s assaults by 20. This effect accumulates, implying that with four Iron Crown ex cards in play, your Future Pokémon’s strikes could potentially deliver up to 80 additional damage, paving the way for an overwhelming futuristic onslaught.

Neo Upper Energy – 162/162 – Ace Rare

Introduced initially in the Black & White—Boundaries Crossed expansion, ACE SPEC cards have long been renowned for their potency as both Item and Pokémon Tool cards. However, there’s a catch—only one ACE SPEC card is permissible in a deck. Breaking new ground, a Special Energy card bearing the ACE SPEC trait and its associated potency is now being unveiled. Neo Upper Energy functions as 2 Energy of any type when attached to a Stage 2 Pokémon, offering a dual benefit of swiftly tipping the scales in your favor with a single Energy attachment and lending a touch of flair to your deck with its vibrant hot pink design and distinctive foil treatment.

Drampa – 184/162 – Illustration Rare

Renowned for its exceptionally gentle nature and fondness for children, Drampa’s endearing qualities are flawlessly depicted by illustrator Mékayu in this card artwork! Set against a backdrop reminiscent of a fairy tale, Drampa serenely soars through a cityscape with two children riding on its back. However, there exists another facet to Drampa’s character—if its companions are harmed, it unleashes an intense fury. This is epitomized by its Raging Cannon attack, which deals 220 damage if all of your Benched Pokémon are already wounded.

Gengar ex – 104/162 – Double Rare

Behold with apprehension as the Shadow Pokémon seems to stretch beyond the confines of the card frame, its eyes and smirk exuding mischief and deceit. The distinctive power of this card inflicts damage counters on your opponent’s Pokémon whenever they attach an Energy card from their hand to one of their Pokémon. While your opponent is compelled to attach Energy to launch attacks, they inadvertently aid in your pursuit of securing a Knock Out!

Buddy-Buddy Poffin – 144/162 – Uncommon

February 21, 2024

As of April 5, 2024, the Battle VIP Pass will bid farewell to the Standard format, but fear not—Buddy-Buddy Poffin is stepping in to provide assistance! This convenient Item card allows you to scour your deck for up to 2 Basic Pokémon with 70 HP or less and place them onto your Bench. It’s an excellent addition for decks centered around potent Pokémon ex, such as Charizard ex and Gardevoir ex, which hinge on evolving from Basic Pokémon with low HP.

You can now check these incredible cards and many others as the Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces expansion has been released already.

Happy gaming!
