Next Pokemon TCG Expansion Revolves Around Pokemon Legends: Arceus

The Pokémon Company has disclosed the next expansion for the Pokemon collectible card game.

The upcoming Sword & Shield expansion, dubbed Astral Radiance, will release in May and enhance the recently released Switch game Pokemon Legends: Arceus. The Astral Radiance expansion includes cards for the various forms of Hisuian featured in Legends Arceus, including Decidueye, Typhlosion, and Samurott. Map backgrounds will also feature Legends Arceus and the Hisui region images.

The set also introduces a new game mechanic, and card type called the Radiant Pokemon. According to an Astral Radiance press release, Radiant Pokemon cards have “a powerful ability or attack that could impact the Pokémon TCG metagame.” Radiant Pokemon cards will also feature “shiny Pokemon illustrated with engraving” for a critical image. The expansion will feature three Radiant Pokémon in a complete set. Under the new rules, players can only use one Radiant Pokemon per deck, but these new cards could bring an exciting twist to matches.
