Pokémon Obsidian Flames is the third expansion set of the Scarlet and Violet Series. This set sees the introduction of terastalized Pokémon cards which are a different type to their regular form, and these cards feature heavily in our top 10 Obsidian Flames Chase Cards.
What are Chase Cards?
Chase cards are rare cards that have a 1/100 or less chance of being inside a booster pack. Previously, they have generally been one of the ultra rare or secret rare cards from an expansion set. However, the rarity specification for cards changed for the Scarlet and Violet series. Chase cards are now highly likely to be the Illustrator Rare, Special Illustration Rare and Hyper Rare cards. Where a set features the popular Pokémon Charizard, these cards tend to feature in the top 10 most desired cards.
