Pre-orders are currently being accepted at a number of places, including numerous local gaming stores (FLGS).

Charizard ex (Darkness), Tyranitar ex (Lightning), and Eiscue ex (Fire) are all making a debut in this expansion. Due to the Terastallization phenomenon, Charizard ex will be a Dark Tera-type Pokémon with a crystal-like appearance.  Attacks by fire will be expensive. As a Darkness card, fire attacks will have a cost and it will be vulnerable to the Grass-type.

The number of meta-relevant cards in The Obsidian Flames is lower than in other releases. Additionally, the Paldea Evolved collection had a lot more Secret Illustration Rare and Illustration Rare cards, which may affect how popular the set is as a whole.

The Tera ex card variations will add a fresh element to the game with exciting new dynamic for the tabletop game and stunning new artwork and a subtle connection to the Scarlet & Violet video game. Follow Gaminstants for the latest Pokémon news!
