Nintendo of America Inc., distributor of both video and trading card games for the Pokémon franchise, ventures into new frontiers with the latest expansion of the trading card game with the announcement of the August 24 release of the Pokémon Trading Card Game: EX Unseen Forces. This expansion, the largest EX set ever released, boasts over 140 cards and holds powerful surprises for players.
Many Pokémon from the Pokémon Gold & Silver video games make their appearance for the first time in an EX series of cards. Players will have the chance to harness the power of two of the most popular Legendary Pokémon, the winged Lugia and Ho-Oh. EX Unseen Forces also includes the enigmatic Unown, whose ancient mystery can be solved by collecting the whole set. The Unown are also numbered with a unique system, making the subset highly collectible. Along with Legendary Pokémon, Pokémon *, new Trainer cards, and more Pokémon-ex, this expansion provides players with a bridge between the known and unknown corners of the Pokémon universe.
The expansion will be available in two 60-card theme decks, Pokémon TCG: EX Unseen Forces Golden Sky and Pokémon TCG: EX Unseen Forces Silvery Ocean, as well as nine-card booster packs.
“Versatility and collectability are key in this milestone expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game,” says Gail Tilden, Nintendo’s Vice President, Brand Management.“EX Unseen Forces will challenge players to reach greater heights of game play and deck construction.”
Pokémon TCG: EX Unseen Forces theme decks and booster packs go on sale August 24, with a MSRP of $10.99 for the theme decks and $3.29 for the booster packs. Each pack features nine randomly inserted game cards (five common, two uncommon, one rare, one holographic card from either the holographic parallel set or a holographic Unown card). Theme decks include a 60-card deck, including one holographic card, a card list, game coin (with the Energy symbol design of lightning and water), damage counters, an updated rulebook (including deck construction tips and card list) and a one-player playmat.
