SV06 Twilight Masquerade (TPCI) / SV6 Mask of Change (TPC)

Welcome to the land of Kitakami, where people and Pokémon live harmoniously with nature. Folktales abound, but not all is as it seems… Uncover the mystery of the masked Legendary Pokémon Ogerpon, appearing as four fearsome types of Tera Pokémon ex, and team up with more newly discovered Pokémon, like Bloodmoon Ursaluna ex and Sinistcha ex. Growing in power, Greninja, Dragapult, and Magcargo dazzle as Tera Pokémon ex, and more ACE SPEC cards round out the festivities in the Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet—Twilight Masquerade expansion!

Reveal Trailer

In a rare coordination between TPC/TPCI, both main versions of the Ogerpon set were revealed.

  • It is reasonable to believe this coordinated announcement happened because it was intended for this year’s Pokemon Day Presents, but for whatever reason, it was canceled/postponed.

The image above which was part of the Pokemon Day Presents countdown displays many familiar cards as well as some new, previously unreleased cards including Ogerpon ex in the top left. We still haven’t seen the Tera Fighting Greninja or the Eevee special art yet at the time of posting this.


Release Dates

The TPCI version - Twilight Masqeurade (Eng) will release May 24th

The TPC equivalent to this reveal - Mask of Change (変幻の仮面 - JP) releases Apr 18th

  • Twilight Masquerade will also include cards from the SV5a set - Crimson Haze (クリムゾンヘイズ - JP), which releases Mar 22nd

Notable Cards

  • this is mostly for cards that either have strong potential, are set mascots, or are otherwise likely to be chase cards

Pokemon

TCG Debuts

  • Ogerpon








  • Loyal 3

(unofficial translations - in Pokedex order)

  • Okidogi – Ability: Adrenaline Power
    If this Pokémon has any Darkness Energy attached to it, it gets +100HP and its attacks do 100 more damage to your opponent’s Active Pokémon.
  • Munkidori - Ability: Adrenaline Brain
    Once during your turn, if this Pokémon has any Darkness Energy attached to it, you may move up to 3 damage counters from 1 of your Pokémon to 1 of your opponent’s Pokémon.
  • Fezandipiti - Ability: Adrenaline Pheromones
    If this Pokémon has any Darkness Energy attached to it and if any damage is done to this Pokémon by attacks, flip a coin. If heads, prevent that damage.






  • Bloodmoon Ursaluna - Unlike regular Ursaluna, Bloodmoon does not evolve from Ursaring for whatever reason, making it a powerful Basic ex

Similar to Radiant Charizard, the ability allows BM Ursaluna ex to reduce its attack cost by one colorless energy for every prize your opponent has taken


  • Polchageist and Sinischa - Convergent forms of Sinistea and Polteageist (the names are flipped for the convergent forms for whatever reason)



plus an additional pair from SV6 that will also likely be in this set


  • Dipplin - Applin's newest evolution.

(Dipplin does evolve into another new Pokemon - Hydrapple, but it likely will be in SV07 instead of this set)

There is a second pair of these two from SV06.
[Moved to “Competitively Relevant” → “Festival Temperance” Archetype]

Meta Potential

  • Tera Fighting Greninja ex - Popular pokemon with two strong attacks and a vibrant SAR that will likely be a big chase for many


  • Tera Dragon Dragapult ex

Dragapult’s second attack does 200 to the active plus 6 damage counters onto bench Pokemon in any way.

Its pre-ev, Drakloak, has an ability that allows you to look at the top two cards of your deck, pick one, and put the other at the bottom of your deck.

  • this ability can stack


  • Tatsugiri

[Ability] - Once during your turn, if this Pokémon is in the Active Spot, you may look at the top 6 cards of your deck, reveal a Supporter card you find there, and put it into your hand. Then, shuffle the other cards back into your deck.

Similar to Mysterious Tail Mew and Stellar Wish Jirachi, the new Tatsugiri looks at the top X cards and allows you to grab some kind of Trainer (This time, a Supporter).

  • There have also been similar abilities that look for a Pokemon, or an Energy on Manaphy and Celebi respectively, but those last two were not meta relevant

Tatsugiri is the first non-mythical to have an ability like this



Trainers

Supporters

  • Carmine and Kieran debut - the two main characters we interact with in both DLCs - both popular in their own way with strong personalities. Likely to have SARs


  • Perrin debut and her Hisuian Growlithe - one of the most beloved characters from the SV DLCs with an insanely nice Special Art





the SAR also pairs with the H-Growlithe AR (her partner Pokemon), which you can also see in the reflection of the camera lens

  • Lana - Decently powerful effect (similar to Klara's text), plus a popular character




Ace Specs

From SV5a (unofficial translations)

  • Unfair Stamp - You can only play this card if your Pokemon was knocked out from damage - Each Player shuffles their hand into their deck, you draw 5, your opponent draws 2
  • Hyper Aroma - Search your deck for up to three Stage 1 Pokémon, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.
  • Survival Cast - If the Pokemon this card is attached to has full HP and would be Knocked Out by damage from an attack, it is not Knocked Out and its remaining HP becomes 10 instead. Then, discard this card (equivalent to the video game's Focus Sash, but there is already an old card with that name and a different effect)



From SV06

  • TBA
  • Scoop Up Cyclone (Reprint) - Put 1 of your Pokemon and all cards attached to it into your hand.
  • Legacy Energy -As long as this card is attached to a Pokemon, it provides every type of Energy, but only provides 1 Energy at a time.

As long as this card is attached to a Pokemon, when it is Knocked Out by damage from an opponent’s Pokemon’s attack, your opponent takes 1 less Prize card. You can only use this effect once per game.



Other Trainers

  • Enhanced Hammer (Reprint) - Discard a Special Energy from one of your opponent’s Pokemon
  • Love Ball (One of the few remaining Apricorn balls that hadn't had a card yet)
  • Boomerang Energy (unofficial translation) - If this card is discarded by the effect of an attack of the Pokemon this card is attached to, attach this card from your discard pile to that Pokemon affer attacking.



  • Walking Whistle - Look at the top 5 cards of your opponent’s deck. Put any number of Basic Pokemon you find there onto your opponent’s Bench. Your opponent shuffles the remaining cards back into their deck.

  • Jamming Tower (Stadium) - Pokémon Tools attached to Pokémon in play (both yours and your opponent’s) have no effect.

Misc.

Chase Cards

  • other AR/IRs:











  • Other Full Arts:

Competitively Relevant

  • More cards with the Paradox Mechanic:


image


  • Palafin ex (including the first card of "Zero Form" Palafin

Similar to the video game, you have to do some switching to get the Hero Form ex into play.

  • ex - [Ability]: Hero’s Spirit
    Put this Pokemon into play only with the effect of Palafin’s Zero to Hero Ability.
  • non ex - [Ability]: Zero to Hero
    Once during your turn, when this Pokemon moves from the Active Spot to the Bench, you may search your deck for Palafin ex and switch it with this Pokemon. Any attached cards, damage counters, Special Conditions, turns in play, and any other effects remain on the new Pokemon. If you switched a Pokemon in this way, shuffle this card into your deck.


This will be in its own promo box in the west, while in Japan and other Asian countries, it will be in SV6

  • “Festival Land” Archetype

the following three have the Festival Land ability which allows you to attack twice if the stadium, “Festival Grounds” is in play.

  • Dipplin
  • Goldeen - Whirlpool: 10 damage. Flip a coin. If heads, discard an Energy attached to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.
  • Swirlix - Sneaky Placement: Put 2 damage counters on 1 of your opponent’s Pokemon.



and these help make the Festival Temperance Archetype possiblie

  • Thwacky - [Ability] If your Active Pokemon has the Ability “Festival Land,” you may use this Ability. Search your deck for a card and put it into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.
  • Festival Grounds Stadium - All Pokemon in play that have any Energy attached to them can’t be affected by Special Conditions. Heal all Special Conditions from any Pokemon that have any Energy attached to them.


  • Tech Attacks


Volbeat

  • [C] If you go first, you can use this attack during your first turn. Search your deck for up to 2 Basic Pokémon and put them onto your Bench. Then, shuffle your deck.

Illumise

  • [C] You can use this attack only if you go second, and only during your first turn. Shuffle 1 of your opponent’s Benched Pokémon and all attached cards into their deck.

Clefable

  • [C][C] Metronome: Choose 1 of your opponent’s Active Pokémon’s attacks and use it as this attack.
