What Are The Two New Types in Paradox Rift?
The new Pokemon types come from the Paradox Pokemon in the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Games. These two new types are Ancient and Future Pokemon, which will have different play styles. Although they are new, their strengths and weaknesses are easy to understand.
Ancient Pokemon will focus more on damage and direct attacks, which are also tougher to Knock Out. However, Future Pokemon will have to rely on speed and Abilities. They also have attacks that will bring additional effects. So, Ancient Pokemon are hard-hitters while Future Pokemon are clever and cunning.
Paradox Rift will also have Trainer Cards, aside from the new Pokemon types. We will also see the return of Technical Machines as Pokemon Tool cards. Overall, it looks like it could change the meta for a bit if you’re planning to play TCG competitively. Speaking of competitive TCG, don’t forget to check out the new Pokemon: Path to the Peak episodes.
The set will contain 13 Pokemon ex, 7 Tera Pokemon ex, and 34 Illustration Rare Pokemon. It will also have 15 Special Illustration Rare Pokemon and Supporters and 28 Ultra Rare full-art etched Pokemon ex and Supporters. However, the exciting ones are the 7 Hyper Rare gold etched cards.
These cards will all appear in Elite Trainer boxes, Booster Packs, and Special Collections. So, what do you think about the two new Pokemon types in Paradox Rift? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to stay tuned to the website for more news.
