The Pokemon Trading Card Game returns to Alola with the Sun & Moon: Guardians Rising Starter Decks and Sun & Moon: Guardians Rising Boosters, both releasing on May 5.
The new expansion features the monsters and guardians of the island realm of Alola, including Tapu Koko-GX, Tapu Lele-GX, Kahuna Hala, and Captain Mellow.
The Guardians Rising expansion will include a total of 140 cards, with 12 all-new Pokemon-GX that take advantage of new game mechanics. The set has 12 full-art Pokemon-GX cards and 3 full-art Supporter cards. Cards will be sold in 10-card booster packs, which are available in 36 pack display boxes. Starter Decks constructed from the new cards are also available, sold in eight-deck displays.
The new expansion will release about a week after the Scizor-EX Box Set and the Sun & Moon Trainer Kit, also featuring monsters from Alola (see “Scizor-EX joins ‘Pokemon’”).
