The Pokémon Company International announced on June 23rd, 2022 the latest expansion for the best-selling Pokémon Trading Card Game, Sword & Shield Lost Origin, available starting September 9th, 2022, at participating retailers around the world. High resolution pictures from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.

New Pokémon Trading Card Game: Sword & Shield—Lost Origin Expansion to Mark the Return of the Lost Zone Gameplay Mechanic

In Sword & Shield—Lost Origin, the Lost Zone gameplay mechanic will make its Sword & Shield Series debut and is expected to shake up the Pokémon TCG metagame. The Lost Zone is similar to the discard pile, but players will not be able to recover these cards during gameplay. Lost Zone cards such as Giratina VSTAR will feature a shadowy aura emanating from the artwork.

Furthermore, Sword & Shield—Lost Origin will be based on the popular Pokémon Legends: Arceus video game and feature more Hisuian Pokémon, including Hisuian Zoroark VSTAR and Hisuian Goodra VSTAR, as well as Radiant Pokémon such as Radiant Gardevoir. Radiant Pokémon feature Shiny Pokémon illustrated in etched artwork and tend to have a powerful Ability or attack.

Booster Packs

Noteworthy cards from the expansion include:

  • Three new Radiant Pokémon
  • Six Pokémon VSTAR
  • 14 Pokémon V and one Pokémon VMAX

As the boundary between dimensions tears apart, Giratina VSTAR plunges the world into the abyssal shadow of the Lost Zone! Be wary of the Lost Zone's power—unlike the discard pile, cards that are sent here cannot be recovered. While Aerodactyl VSTAR harnesses this distorted power, Magnezone, Drapion, Hisuian Goodra, and Hisuian Zoroark also appear as Pokémon VSTAR to show off their own astonishing skills, joined by Kyurem VMAX. Above the shadows, Enamorus V and Radiant Gardevoir conjure up dazzling magic in the Sword & Shield—Lost Origin expansion!

  • Over 190 cards
  • 3 brand-new Radiant Pokémon
  • 6 awesome Pokémon VSTAR
  • 14 powerful Pokémon V and 1 enormous Pokémon VMAX
  • 30 cards with special art in the Trainer Gallery subset
  • More than 15 Trainer cards

June 6, 2022 — In celebration of the upcoming launch of the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Pokémon GO expansion from The Pokémon Company International, Trainers will be able to experience new in-game events in the Pokémon GO app that are inspired by this special collaboration.

These themed in-game events will take place from June 16, 2022, to June 30, 2022, and will include the following.

  • Trainers will have the opportunity to catch a Pikachu wearing a Pokémon TCG-themed hat in the Pokémon GO app. This Pikachu can also be found in Pokémon GO booster packs.
  • Mewtwo will appear in five-star raids in the Pokémon GO app, and Mewtwo V will be featured in the Pokémon GO expansion with special artwork inspired by raids.
  • Wimpod and Golisopod will make their debut in the Pokémon GO app, as both Pokémon also appear in the Pokémon GO expansion.

In addition, Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO products will contain promo codes that can be redeemed for various in-game avatar items, such as a hat and T-shirt combo that matches Pikachu’s Pokémon TCG-themed hat. Promo codes will be valid from July 17, 2022, to July 31, 2024, and can be redeemed at https://nianticlabs.com/tcg-code​.

Trainers will also be able to collect and play with cards showcasing the beloved Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle — plus their Evolutions — as part of the upcoming expansion. Just as Shiny Venusaur, Shiny Charizard and Shiny Blastoise can be encountered in the world of Pokémon GO, these Pokémon will appear as Radiant Venusaur, Radiant Charizard and Radiant Blastoise in the Pokémon TCG with powerful attacks and Abilities.

During the event, Pokémon featured in the expansion will appear in the wild and in raids. Additionally, as a nod to this Pikachu card from the expansion, Pikachu will appear in Pokémon GO wearing the same blue hat.

Throughout the Pokémon TCG Crossover Event, Mewtwo will be appearing in five-star raids. A Mewtwo V card in the expansion depicts the Genetic Pokémon descending from the sky among tall buildings, implying that a raid may be about to begin with the Trainers below. Wimpod and Golisopod make an appearance in the expansion, too, and they'll be making their Pokémon GO debuts during this time to commemorate the occasion.

Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and their Evolutions boast powerful attacks and Abilities, as well as dynamic, colorful artwork.

JAM HOME MADE (ジャム ホーム メイド)

Image

A unisex jewelry and accessory brand established in 1998. The brand concept is to propose "compassion" and "smiles," mainly through bridal rings, jewelry, and accessories which are worn close to the skin.

The brand name "JAM" is derived from "JAM SESSION." JAM SESSION is an improvised performance by a group of jazz musicians. Nowadays, the brand name refers not only to jazz, but also to various genres of music and art, and its main focus is on improvisation.

The official Japanese Pokémon Trading Card Game website has revealed a new type of card that will be included in the Pokémon GO set. Metamon cards in this set appear as other Pokémon. It will look like a normal Pokémon card, but on the surface of the card is a removeable sticker.

How to spot a Metamon

If there is a Metamon symbol in place of the regulation mark, the card has a sticker on its surface that when peeled off reveals Metamon! There are other cards besides Bippa that turn into Metamon when peeled off.
*Cards with the sticker not peeled off cannot be used in official tournaments.

Ditto

Now here's something you don't see every day… And if you're not looking closely, you might miss it! To find Ditto in the Pokémon GO expansion, look for other Pokémon that have a layer you can peel off to reveal the Transform Pokémon underneath! Note that the Pokémon that rests on top of Ditto can't be used competitively in official matches—only the Ditto itself. In fact, you'll find a little Ditto icon in place of the typical tournament registration mark!
