The Pokémon Company has revealed a new gameplay mechanic being included in the upcoming Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Brilliant Stars expansion which will come out on February 25, 2022. The new VSTAR Pokémon will grow from Pokémon V and will each have a very powerful attack or ability as well as high health and great damage attacks. You have to use their individual ability or attack wisely though as you can only use one VSTAR ability per game. When one of these Pokémon gets tapped out, your enemy will be able to take two prize cards instead of just one. Check out the two photos of VSTAR Pokémon to share so you can see what kind of power you’re looking at with these cards.
The first 4 VSTAR Pokémon will be Arceus, Charizard, Shaymin, and Whimsicott. In addition to finding them in the Sword & Shield—Brilliant Stars expansions, you’ll be able to find them in both the Leafeon and Glaceon VSTAR Special Collection.
