Paradox Rift Set Details

Paradox Rift will likely be a combination of Japanese sets, featuring Ancient Roar and Future Flash as well as Raging Surf.

This set will contain 182 cards in the base set (not including Illustration, Ultra, Special Illustration or Hyper Rares).

The set will include:

  • 13 Pokemon ex
  • 7 Tera Pokemon ex cards
  • 34 Illustration Rare Pokemon and Supporter cards
  • 15 Special Illustration Rare Pokemon and Supporter cards
  • 28 Ultra-Rare Full-Art Etched Pokemon and Supporter cards
  • 7 Ultra Rare Fullt-Art Etched Pokemon ex and Supporter cards
  • Technical Machines will also return, where they’ll appear as new Pokemon tool cards that allow access to a new attack while attached

It’s the first set that will also introduce the Ancient and Future mechanic.

While we’re yet to get many details on these three sets, we do know that Raging Surf will feature Gholdengo ex and a Tera Water-type Garchomp ex.

There’s also a Starter Set Terastal Mewtwo ex and Starter Set Terastal Skeleridge ex which will release alongside those sets and be incorporated into the main English set.

It’s pretty clear based on the name of the set that Paradox Pokemon will be the main theme for this set – it’s been confirmed we will see the debuts of Scream Tail, Roaring Moon, Iron Valiant Brute Bonnet, Iron Moth and Iron Bundle.

Paradox Rift Pre-Release Promo Cards

The Promo Cards have not been revealed yet and are only obtainable in Build and Battle Boxes (which are also available in Build and Battle Stadium boxes).

Each set has four available Promo Cards and usually releases two weeks before the set’s launch; so expect them to release on the 21st-29th of October 2023.
