In addition to the new trailer for the “competitive gameplay” at the 2022 Pokémon World Championships, Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara has also announced a new series of trading cards.
In a separate video, Atsushi Nagashima – Pokémon TCG Game Manager at Creatures Inc. – explained how the trailer was a “world’s first sneak peek” of the new game Scarlet & Violet TCG series, launching in 2023.
This is exactly what he had to say about the video above:
The “old” logo shown in the video stands for this upcoming series. The design depicts subtle strength and evokes vitality. Old Pokémon will appear in each Evolution Stage: as Basic, Stage 1, and Stage 2 Pokémon. They will have high HP as well as powerful abilities and attacks. However, taking down one of these Pokémon will allow you to claim two Prize cards.
While knocking down an old Pokémon by your opponent can cost you two Prize cards, Stage 2 Pokémon in particular have the power to turn the tide of battle in an instant, with HP as high as that of a VMAX Pokémon. and powerful attacks that require little energy. The old version of the powerful Pokémon in Phase 2 is just one example of how environments will become more diverse, allowing a variety of Pokémon to shine.
In addition, the key theme of the Scarlet & Violet series is “return” and we plan to introduce Pokémon cards, Trainer cards, and Energy cards that can turn the tide of battle in a way this. In this upcoming series, you’ll see both familiar and newly discovered Pokémon appear as old Pokémon, so stay tuned for more info.
Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet Series will expand the game further as the new standard for Pokémon TCG and will change the game in many ways. Stay tuned for the evolution of Pokémon TCG.
