Pokémon battles have continually grown in size over the years. Double battles are also making a comeback with the upcoming release of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!.

At this year’s Pokémon World Championships, The Pokémon Company revealed new “game-changing” cards for the official trading card game. Continuing on from Pokémon-GX series is the announcement of TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX. Essentially, it’s two pocket monsters on the same card teaming-up alongside each other, as seen in the anime and video game series. 

Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara explained how the cards would feature pairs of the same type. The first card revealed (as seen above) features Pikachu and Zekrom. The power and hit points of these cards are unprecedented – with the ability to knock out a monster on the opponent’s bench in a single blow. The only risk is if this tag team card is knocked out, the opponent takes three prize cards from you instead of one. TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX is coming soon, with more details to be shared in the future. 

Take a look at the announcement trailer, and tell us in the comments if you play the official TCG.
