The expansion will introduce a new kind of Pokemon trading card.

Trainers, get ready to add some cool new cards to your Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG) collection.

The game’s next expansion, Sword & Shield – Vivid Voltage, will add the Mythical Pokemon Zarude to the Pokemon TCG. It will also include several VMAX cards, such as Pikachu VMAX, Orbeetle VMAX, and Coalossal VMAX, which feature images of these Pokemon in their Gigantamax forms.

Vivid Voltage will also introduce players to an entirely new kind of Pokemon card called “Amazing Pokemon.” According to a press release, each one of these Amazing Pokemon cards “features a Legendary or Mythical Pokémon like Celebi, illustrated with vividly rainbow backgrounds that extend outside of the frame, as well as foil and etched details.” These Amazing Pokemon cards also have a special rarity symbol to make them stand out even more.

Altogether, the Sword & Shield – Vivid Voltage expansion will include six Amazing Pokemon cards, six Pokemon VMAX cards, 11 Pokemon V and 13 full-art Pokemon V cards, 16 trainer cards, seven full-art Supporter cards, and four new Special Energy cards.

The full Vivid Voltage expansion will launch on November 13 in booster packs, theme decks, Elite Trainer Boxes, and special collections. However, you can get your hands on some of these cards even earlier by picking up the “Sword & Shield – Vivid Voltage Build & Battle Box,” which launches on October 31.

The Pokemon Company said this box will contain “four Sword & Shield—Vivid Voltage booster packs; a 23-card Evolution pack featuring key cards from current and prior sets, including one of four alternate-art promo cards; and a deck-building tip sheet.”
