See the First Cards from the Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO Expansion
The upcoming expansion features breathtaking illustrations bridging the world of the Pokémon TCG and Pokémon GO.
Check out the first cards to be revealed from the upcoming Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO expansion. Found in Pokémon GO booster packs, these collectible and powerful cards will attract every type of Pokémon TCG fan! Note that booster packs for this expansion will not be sold separately.
Reminiscent of the Pokémon GO experience, some of the Pokémon appear to have jumped into the real world, such as Pikachu walking alongside its Trainer and Snorlax snoozing on the front porch of a house. Some cards portray Pokémon that have a connection to Pokémon GO, such as the Mythical Pokémon Meltan, who was originally discovered in Pokémon GO. And check out Blissey’s illustration to see the Pokémon valiantly defending a Gym.

Trainer cards also pick up the Pokémon GO vibe. The PokéStop Stadium card can find Item cards near the top of the deck every turn. Similarly, the Lure Module Item card lets both players find Pokémon near the top of their deck. And it won’t come as a surprise that Candela, Spark, and Blanche, the heads of Team Valor, Team Instinct, and Team Mystic, make their Pokémon TCG debut as Supporter cards. These three also appear as beautiful full-art cards.

One promo card that stands out in multiple ways is Radiant Eevee, which has a stunning visual appearance. But it’s also useful in battle, letting you search for up to six cards in your deck with its Twinkle Gathering attack. And since it’s a Colorless-type Pokémon, it’s easy to slot into pretty much any deck!
