The Cards Of Pokémon TCG: Team Up Part 29: More Teams
Pokémon TCG featured TAG TEAM GX cards in Sun & Moon - Team Up including Latias & Latios, Gengar & Mimikyu, and Eevee & Snorlax.
Four years ago, Pokémon TCG released the ninth main series set of the Sun & Moon era. The expansion, Sun & Moon – Team Up, came out on September 9th, 2022. Sun & Moon – Team Up added quite a lot to the hobby, including a special card type that would later become the most sought-after style of chase card in the Sword & Shield era. I'm talking, of course, about Alternate Arts. Sun & Moon – Team Up also introduced TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX, which featured two Pokémon on a single card. These species shared at least one of their typings. TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX were available as standard TEAM TEAM GX cards, Full Arts, Alternate Arts, and Rainbow Rares. Sun & Moon – Team Up was also the last set to include Prism Stars. This English-language expansion was based on the Japanese set Tag Bolt and took inspiration from the Kanto-themed games Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! Let's look back on this influential set and appreciate the artwork that would lay the groundwork for the current Alternate Art-themed era of Sword & Shield and beyond. Today, we continue with the Electric-types of Sun & Moon – Team Up.
We wrap up our TAG TEAM GX Full Art selection with Gengar & Mimikyu GX, Latias & Latios GX, and of course, Eevee & Snorlax GX. Just like all of the standard TAG TEAM GX cards were illustrated by Mitsuhiro Arita of Base Set Charizard fame, all of the TAG TEAM GX Full Arts are illustrated by 5ban Graphics. This section of the set expanded in Sun & Moon – Team Up, though, with Alternate Arts added to the mix. Next time, we'll start showing off this hobby-altering card type.
Stay tuned for the journey through this teamwork-themed set as we continue to spotlight the cards and artwork of Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon – Team Up. Next time, the spotlight continues with the main section of this set.
