We have some incredible news for you Pokemon fans, the next set in the Sword & Shield series has been officially announced to be Fusion Strike!
We can speculate that with Mew being the star of the show, hopefully, we will see an alternate art Mew card in there, and we know it is going to be extremely sought after! With Genesect being added back onto the pack artwork, fans are happy to see he is making a comeback, as you know he has been out of the TCG rotation for a while now, and fans will be super happy to see him back in play! Who knows what Fusion Strike has in store for us, we can only speculate! Fusion Strike will include a brand new mechanic which is of course named Fusion Strike and it is a mechanic very similar to Rapid Strike and Single Strike. Who better to be the headline of the set than one of everyone's favorite Pokemon which is Mew! Up to now all we have for this set is the logo and product images, but that doesn't stop us from being excited and wanting to dive straight in.
Being released alongside the set are some awesome league battle decks including VMAX versions of both Rapid-strike and Single-strike Urshifu and Hoopa V! If the man set wasn't already super-awesome. The set includes 25 Fusion Strike cards such as Mew VMAX, Genesect V, and Hoopa V.
