Pokemon Scarlet and Violet TCG Release Date
John-Anthony Disotto at Ludkins Media looked into when TCG expansions would be released in comparison to the release of a new mainline game. What he saw is that when Pokemon Sword and Shield was released in Nov. 2019, a Pokemon Sword and Shield TCG expansion was released in Japan by December, and brought to the West in Feb. 2020.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are scheduled to be released on Nov. 18. With the information Disotto detailed in his article in mind, we can expect to see a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet TCG expansion reach western audiences by Feb. 2023.
