Get ready for an eclipse as the Sun and Moon set upon the world of the TCG!
This November will start the departure of the Sun & Moon saga for the TCG. We have seen plenty of amazing cards in the form of GX, Prism Star and Tag Team GX. The Sun & Moon TCG saga started with Solgaleo and Lunala and it is going to end with these Pokemon in the next Pokemon TCG set, Cosmic Eclipse! Plus a new distribution for video game players!
New TCG Set
Cosmic Eclipse is going to be the final Sun & Moon set for the Pokemon TCG. This set will feature plenty of new cards in the form of Tag Team GX Pokemon and trainers! Get ready to see new Tag Team Trios coming to the TCG in the form of Arceus & Dialga & Palkia GX and Togepi & Cleffa & Igglybuff GX.
One of the new features coming in Cosmic Eclipse is the introduction of Tag Team Trainers. Some of them will include Cynthia & Caitlin which will allow you to use a basic effect but if you do a little extra then you can also use a second effect.
Cosmic Eclipse will have plenty of cards featuring your favorite characters! One of these cards include Solgaleo & Lunala GX which features Lillie in the card. This Tag Team GX Pokemon is unique because the additional GX Attack effect will be activated if you play a card in the same turn of the attack when it was used.
There will also be Character Rare cards too which are normal cards but with the full art treatment. These Pokemon cards features trainers such as Cheren, Erika and more!
Below are the full details about Cosmic Eclipse.
- Nine new TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX
