The Art of TAG TEAM Cards

Pokémon partners strike a variety of amazing poses in the new Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Team Up expansion.

The new TAG TEAM cards introduced in the Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Team Up expansion feature two Pokémon working together to take on an opponent. They're prized for their huge HP and powerful attacks, and the art of these cards is also something to behold! Each of the six TAG TEAM cards in this expansion has multiple variants, giving different artists the opportunity to show their interpretation of these ferocious duos. Take a look at these fantastic new cards that you can add to your Pokémon TCG collection! In addition to the cards discussed below, special full-art cards that feature simplified artwork and bold outlines can be found randomly in Sun & Moon—Team Up booster packs. Which will you hunt for?

Celebi & Venusaur-GX

The mean, green team of Celebi & Venusaur-GX is a force to be reckoned with, and they certainly look ready to take on all sorts of challengers on this card, found randomly in Sun & Moon—Team Up booster packs.

It's hard to deny their majesty when we see Celebi descending from the treetops as streaks of light illuminate both partners. You'll find this beautiful card in a Pokémon TCG: TAG TEAM Tin.

Pikachu & Zekrom-GX

They may be opposites when it comes to their appearance—one large and intimidating, one small and cute—but Pikachu and Zekrom make for a very effective TAG TEAM. You can feel their power as the duo leaps into action. It's clear they don't intend to hold back on this card, found randomly in Sun & Moon—Team Up booster packs.

The partners play up their aforementioned differences when Pikachu rides into battle on Zekrom's back. Tiny Pikachu's intense expression may look adorable, but its towering partner and the many bolts of electricity arcing around the pair let you know that they're no joke. This mighty card is available in a Pokémon TCG: TAG TEAM Tin.

Gengar & Mimikyu-GX

If you're in the market for something spooky, the team of Gengar and Mimikyu should provide all the playful creepiness you desire. Gengar looms large, taking up most of the card, but don't overlook Mimikyu, who is certainly up to mischief as it lurks in the background.

The haunting pair get a little closer on this card, but given that they're lurking in the shadows, we're a bit suspicious of their intentions. Both cards can be randomly found in Sun & Moon—Team Up booster packs.

Latias & Latios-GX

It should come as no surprise to see the two Legendary Eon Pokémon joining forces on a TAG TEAM card. The pair look quite dynamic as they race into battle together, an expression of fierce determination on their faces.

But these two aren't afraid to show off their softer side. Soak in the beauty as they soar next to each other, using their necks to form a heart that frames the sun. Both cards can be randomly found in Sun & Moon—Team Up booster packs.

Eevee & Snorlax-GX

Although there's a considerable size difference between them, Eevee and Snorlax are comrades in cuddliness. And, as evidenced on their TAG TEAM card, they become powerful partners when getting into a scrap. Check out the determination on their faces as little Eevee leaps into the fray while Snorlax serves as a massive backup. There's no getting past this pair on this card that's randomly found in Sun & Moon—Team Up booster packs!

They even make a good match when the battle is over. Snorlax is more than happy to share a snack with its diminutive pal on this card that you'll find in a Pokémon TCG: TAG TEAM Tin.

Magikarp & Wailord-GX

Speaking of partners with considerable size differences, Wailord has a good 45 feet and roughly 850 pounds on its buddy Magikarp. That doesn't stop the two from working together—although it does lead to the occasional mishap. For instance, on this card you can randomly find in Sun & Moon—Team Up booster packs, Magikarp gets blasted into the sky atop the powerful spray from Wailord's blowhole.

Magikarp's situation isn't much improved in the illustration on the promo card found in the Pokémon TCG: Towering Splash-GX Box, which seems to suggest that Magikarp is on the verge of being accidentally swallowed by its colossal friend. Don't give up, Magikarp!

Whether there's one card here that tickles your fancy or you want to get them all, the Sun & Moon—Team Up expansion's TAG TEAM cards will make powerful new additions to your Pokémon TCG collection.
