Pokémon-GX Take Center Stage in the New Expansion

We dive into the Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion to see which cards we think will be most sought after.

The Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion is a bounty for both players and collectors alike. It's packed full of cards that do more than get you closer to victory at your next big match—the artwork of awesome Pokémon-GX and Legendary Pokémon is enough for Pokémon fans to seek out on their own.

Take a look at some of our favorite powerful and impressive cards from the latest Pokémon TCG expansion!

Exceptional Pokémon-GX

The epic clash between Silvally and the Ultra Beasts is the essence of the Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion, and the artwork depicting these awesome creatures does not disappoint. The images of Nihilego-GX and Buzzwole-GX in particular have an aura that reveals their out-of-this-world origins.

Kanto Classics

The Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion also highlights several Pokémon from the Kanto region as Pokémon-GX. Two of the Pokémon are regional variants, Alolan Golem-GX and the never-not-funny Alolan Exeggutor-GX. But Gyarados-GX is still very much Gyarados, and we're still wowed regularly by new portrayals of this classic Pokémon.

Elemental Differences

The Legendary trio of Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are certainly being discussed for their value in Pokémon TCG battles, but we're just as impressed with their beautiful artwork. Each Pokémon certainly has its own look, from the simple illustration of Regice, to the watercolor look of Regirock, to the clean lines of Registeel. They may be associated with one another, but each of these Pokémon brings a style all its own.

Setting the Scene

With all the talk of how wonderfully drawn the Pokémon are, it can be easy to overlook some of the amazing art on the Trainer and Energy cards in each expansion. Some of the cards from the Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion that caught our eye include the Devoured Field and Sea of Nothingness Stadium cards, which feature an art style that is painstakingly detailed, bringing life to otherwise barren scenes.

As you can see, the Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion is sure to turn heads as much for the beauty of the cards as for their winning contributions in battle.
