The expansion will also feature new TAG TEAM Supporter cards that depict two characters, such as Red & Blue and Cynthia & Caitlin, on a single Trainer card. Fans can also keep their eyes peeled for special versions of select cards that feature illustrations of Pokémon with their Trainers. Other key highlights of Sun & Moon—Cosmic Eclipse include:
- Nine new TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX
- Seven more Pokémon-GX
- More than 20 Trainer cards and a new Special Energy card
Once released, cards from Sun & Moon—Cosmic Eclipse will be available in the Pokémon TCG Card Dex app, which offers an easy way to digitally browse and discover cards from the Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon Series.
