With four core expansions released every year, the newest Pokémon card set is constantly changing. Fans of the trading card game who want to play with the most up-to-date monsters naturally need to keep their eye on the ball. To help you keep up with the regular rotation, this guide will stay updated with details on Pokémon’s newest sets.
Of course, the newest Pokémon TCG sets aren’t the only ones that matter. The most powerful Pokémon come from a wide variety of boosters, so here at Wargamer we cover all Pokémon TCG expansions, past and present. Heck, we can even answer videogame-related questions from time to time – for example, how many Pokémon are there right now?
Let’s answer that burning question up-front. Scarlet & Violet – 151 is the newest Pokémon card set.
Pokémon newest set details
Released on September 22, 2023, Scarlet & Violet – 151 is a return to the Pokémon TCG’s roots, with over 160 cards representing the first 151 Pokémon ever created.
