New Mechanic Unveiled for the Pokémon Trading Card Game, More Details Shared for the Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet

New information for the highly anticipated Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet video games was revealed during the closing ceremony, introducing a new regional Pokémon, a deeper look at the Terastal Phenomenon, and more. The Pokémon Company and Creatures also announced the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG): Scarlet & Violet Series, launching in 2023. The Scarlet & Violet Series will become the new Standard format for competitive play.

The Pokémon World Championships is an invitation-only event held in a different location every year, for which players can qualify by competing in various local, regional, and international tournaments in the Play! Pokémon program. This year’s champions were awarded a one-of-a-kind Pokémon World Championships trophy and a portion of a prize pool totaling more than $1,000,000.

The location of the 2023 Pokémon World Championships was also announced during the closing ceremony on Sunday evening, to be held in Yokohama, Japan.

Unveiled during the Pokémon World Championships was Pokémon ex, a new gameplay mechanic that will release in the Scarlet & Violet Series. Featuring fan-favorite Pokémon and newly discovered ones, Pokémon ex will appear in each stage of evolution and have high HP, as well as powerful attacks and Abilities.

While getting a Pokémon ex Knocked Out by an opponent can cost two Prize cards, Stage 2 Pokémon ex has the power to quickly turn the tide of the battle with high HP and powerful attacks that require little Energy. The theme of “comebacks” will be a key focus for the Scarlet & Violet Series, as players will encounter various Pokémon, Trainer, and Energy cards that can create critical turning points in the game.

A New Pokémon Revealed: Cyclizar​

Battle with Pokémon Trainers from All over the World in the Battle Stadium

Ranked Battles, which players have had the chance to enjoy in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, will be returning in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. Players will also be able to take on battles in modes like Casual Battles and Online Competitions as well.

Master Using the Terastal Phenomenon in Battle

Terastallizing is a phenomenon in the Paldea region that makes Pokémon shine and glimmer like gems. The primary feature of Terastallizing in battle is that it changes a Pokémon’s type to its Tera Type. Pokémon don’t outwardly show what their Tera Type is until they Terastallize—a fact that players can use to take opponents by surprise in battle.

Tera Blast is a Normal-type move that can be learned with a TM. When used by a Terastallized Pokémon, it becomes a move of the same type as the Pokémon’s Tera Type. Tera Blast inflicts damage using the Attack or Sp. Atk stat—whichever is higher for the user.​
