The next Pokémon Trading Card Game set, Forbidden Light, has been revealed and will be released on May 4, 2018.

Forbidden Light is the second set based on Pokémon from Ultra Sun and Moon and contains over 130 new cards, including five Prism Star cards—the new mechanic that was released in Ultra Prism, which came out in February 2018 in the West.

Ultra Nercozma-GX is the flagship Pokémon of the set, where he'll make his TCG debut. He's joined by Lucario-GX, Greninja-GX, Zygarde-GX, Yveltal-GX, Volcanion Prism Star, and Arceus Prism Star as the set's rarest cards.

In total, there will be five new Prism Star cards, eight Pokémon-GX, six Ultra Beasts, 15 Trainer cards and two Special Energy cards that are unique to Forbidden Light, with over 100 common and rare cards available in packs. Players are guaranteed to get 10 cards in each pack, which includes at least one rare card and one basic Energy card.

Players can get their hands on these new cards early at many pre-release tournaments held across the world from April 21 to 29.
