Trading Cards based on the popular mobile game Pokémon GO will be coming out later this summer.

It’s a great time to be a Pokémon fan. The franchise has been having a huge surge in popularity lately, especially with its video game series. This year’s Pokémon Day gave us massive announcements regarding future and amazing content for the franchise. Those announced content included in-game updates or events for current games, a new anime series based on Legends: Arceus, and two brand new upcoming games (Scarlet and Violet) that will introduce us to generation 9.


Then, of course, a brand new expansion for the Pokemon Trading Card Game series (Sword & Shield – Astral Radiance). However, that won’t be the only expansion for the Trading Card Game series this year.
