The Pokémon Company International today announced Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism, a brand-new expansion for the Pokémon Trading Card Game, launching in the UK on 2 February 2018.
Echoing the story line from the recently released video games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, this latest Pokémon TCG expansion is set in an alternate version of Sinnoh, one of the twisted parallel regions that players can reach by traveling through an Ultra Wormhole.
Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism will see a new gameplay mechanic coming to the Pokémon TCG with the introduction of Prism Star cards. These are powerful Pokémon and Trainer cards that, when played effectively, can dramatically alter the balance of a match. Due to their game-changing effects, a player can put only one Prism Star card with a given name in their deck (rather than the usual four).
The Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism expansion will feature:
- Over 150 cards, including:
- 6 Prism Star cards
- 5 Ultra Beasts
- 18 full-art cards
- Booster packs will consist of:
- 10 cards selected from the expansion, including at least 1 card of rare or higher rarity, plus an additional basic Energy card.
