Time for more Paradox Pokemon?

It's important to note that the following information is not yet confirmed and is subject to change. While we have received distributor information from a reliable source, we have yet to see any sell sheets to verify the details. Nonetheless, our source assures us that the products are authentic.

Ancient Roar / Future Flash


We've received some initial details on an upcoming set slated for release this October. The recently trademarked names, "Ancient Roar" & "Future Flash" (previously called Flash of the Future) appears to be legitimate and suggests that we may be in store for more Paradox Pokemon ex cards.


The sets are officially called:

Scarlet & Violet Expansion Pack - Ancient Roar - (ポケモンカードゲーム スカーレット&バイオレット 拡張パック 古代の咆哮)

Scarlet & Violet Expansion Pack - Future Flash - (ポケモンカードゲーム スカーレット&バイオレット 拡張パック フューチャーフラッシュ)


This dual set will launch on October 27, 2023, with each booster box containing 30 packs.


  • The set size is unknown for now.
  • 1 Booster box includes 30 packs.
  • One booster box costs 5,400 yen (including tax)



Also Wild Force & Cyber Judge were trademarked back in April, this could future more Paradox Pokemon. So it's difficult to speculate which Pokemon could be exactly in this set. We think it's either Iron Leaves or Iron Valiant / Walking Wake or Roaring Moon. Keep in mind that this is just pure speculation and nothing is confirmed.

Scarlet & Violet Special Deck Set ex Venusaur & Charizard & Blastoise


We also got first information on a special product called:

Scarlet & Violet Special Deck Set Ex Venusaur & Charizard & Blastoise

(ポケモンカードゲーム スカーレット&バイオレット スペシャルデッキセット ex フシギバナ&リザードン&カメックス)


This product is scheduled for launch on November 10, 2023.


We have no additional information or pricing beyond this for now, but it's safe to assume ex cards of Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise could be featured in this product.

We will continue to provide updates and additional information as we learn more about the upcoming set. Make sure to follow us on social media to stay informed of the latest news and official product images once they become available.
