MEDIA ALERT: Pokémon Trading Card Game: Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces Expansion Launches Today with Return of ACE SPEC Cards

March 22, 2024 — Today, The Pokémon Company International has released the latest expansion in the best-selling Pokémon Trading Card Game, Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces, available beginning today at participating retailers worldwide.

Initially introduced in the Black & White Series, ACE SPEC cards return to the Pokémon TCG in Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces. ACE SPEC cards have powerful effects, but each deck is limited to only one ACE SPEC card. Furthermore, ACE SPEC cards in Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces feature a new eye-catching magenta design and can appear as Trainer or Special Energy cards.
The latest expansion also features new Pokémon, including Walking Wake and Iron Leaves, which debuted in the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet video games. Trainers will also see new Ancient and Future Pokémon and Trainer cards as well as more type-shifted Tera Pokémon ex.
Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces is now available in booster packs, Elite Trainer Boxes and special collections at participating retailers worldwide. In celebration of the Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces expansion, a gift will be available with any Pokémon TCG purchase of $15 or more. Trainers will receive a special Koraidon promo card from GameStop in the U.S. and Canada, as well as from EB Games in Australia and New Zealand — or a special Miraidon promo card from Best Buy in the U.S. The promo cards will be available starting today, while supplies last.
In addition, Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces is now digitally playable via the Pokémon TCG Live app for iOS, Android, macOS and Windows devices. Trainers can collect and battle with new ACE SPEC cards, and upon login, the Scarlet & Violet—Temporal Forces Battle Pass will reward players with a new deck featuring Raging Bolt ex. Players can also unlock an additional premium deck featuring Iron Crown ex by redeeming Crystals, earned by completing daily quests.
