Time to warp to a brand new level of Pokemon TCG!
Ultra Prism has officially been announced to be the next Pokemon TCG set coming to America! This set is going to have over 150 cards which will make it one of the biggest sets in the Pokemon TCG.
The cards from Ultra Prism will be based on an alternate version of Sinnoh. This is to reflect the theme from Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon video games where players can travel through wormholes to meet unique Pokemon and areas. So get ready to see twisted versions of some of your favorite Sinnoh Pokemon such as Dialga, Palkia and more!
Ultra Prism will also introduce the Prism Star mechanic. This mechanic allows the players to play powerful Pokemon and Trainer cards that can twist the battle. These powerful cards can have powerful effects such as massive energy energy acceleration or disruption. That is why players are only allow to play one Prism Star card with a given name in their deck. Usually players are able to play with four copies of a certain card. Once a Prism Star card enters the discard then that card is sent to the Lost Zone. This is a special area where once cards are place there then they are removed from the game for the rest of the match.
Below are the details for Ultra Prism.

- Over 150 cards, including:
- 6 Prism Star cards
