The newest Pokemon TCG game mechanic has been announced by The Pokemon Company International. VSTAR Pokemon cards with a VSTAR Power move!
The new mechanic was revealed via a half art style Arceus VSTAR card in celebration of 19th October 2021 which is the 25th Anniversary of the original release of Pokemon TCG in Japan.
The game mechanic will act similar to Pokemon VMAX and needs to replace a Pokemon V in play. The VSTAR Power move will act similarly to GX Attacks from Sun & Moon, incredibly powerful but single use.
