Here's what the Pokémon TCG had to say about this upcoming special release:

Certain cards illustrate Pokémon as if they have jumped out into the real world, such as Pikachu walking alongside its Trainer and Snorlax sleeping wherever it pleases, while other cards portray Pokémon in scenes that are familiar to the mobile game, such as Blissey valiantly defending a Gym and Aipom dodging a Poké Ball. In addition, objects and characters from the world of Pokémon GO will appear as Trainer cards, such as PokéStop as a Stadium card and Lure Module as an Item card, as well as Spark of Team Instinct, Blanche of Team Mystic and Candela of Team Valor as Supporter cards.

The Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO expansion will begin hitting shelves on July 1st, 2022 with more releases coming at a later date.
