New Pokemon Sun And Moon Expansion Coming To The TCG

The third expansion for the Sun & Moon Pokemon Trading Card Game series, called Sun & Moon–Burning Shadows, launches August 4.

The expansion adds over 140 new cards, namely 12 new Pokemon-GX, which have higher HP and stronger attacks than their normal versions. Pokemon added include Alolan Pokemon Necrozma-GX, Tapu Fini-GX, and Marshadow as well as Machamp-GX, Charizard-GX, Darkrai-GX, and Ho-Oh-GX. See two of the new cards below.

The expansion also adds six full-art Supporter cards featuring “important human characters,” most likely from Team Skull. However, there are no previews available for those cards yet, so it remains to be seen how they’ll affect the kinds of decks you can build.

The Sun & Moon series was released in February with a base expansion that introduced Pokemon-GX and Alolan Pokemon to the game. It was followed by the Guardians Rising expansion in May, which added 12 new Pokemon-GX cards and a number of full-art cards.

In other Pokemon news, Nintendo recently announced Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3DS, new versions of 2016’s Sun and Moon featuring an alternate story. Those games aren’t coming to Nintendo Switch, but President Ishihara of the Pokemon Company confirmed during Nintendo’s E3 presentation that a new, mainline Pokemon RPG is in development exclusively for the Switch and “may not release for more than a year.”

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
