Tag Team Pokémon-GX cards unveiled

Published on: 31st August 2018

The new cards are coming to the Pokémon TCG early in 2019.

Taking the stage at the 2018 Pokémon World Championships, The Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara introduced a new type of Pokémon card. Called Tag Team Pokémon-GX, the cards will feature two Pokémon of the same type, which join forces and battle together. The powerful new cards will have higher HP and stronger attacks than usual; a player will have to forfeit three Prize cards if theirs is knocked out. The cards will be launched early next year.

Initially, only one Tag Team card was revealed: Pikachu & Zekrom-GX. There will be other Tag Team cards, though the company did not say how many. Eagle eyed fans have noticed, however, that the Pikachu & Zekrom-GX is labelled #33/181, which implies the set will have 181 cards. GX cards were first announced at the Pokémon World Championships in 2016 and debuted in the Sun & Moon expansion for the TCG; there are now over 100 available.
