Ancient and Future Mechanic

A new Ancient and Future mechanic was revealed during the closing ceremony of the 2023 World Championships in Yokohama, Japan. Paradox Pokémon are ancient and futuristic versions of existing Pokémon and were first introduced with the launch of the Scarlet and Violet series. To date the only Paradox Pokémon included in the TCG have been Koraidon, Miraidon, Iron Treads and Great Tusk and these cards have been regular cards with no special identifying symbol to show they are Paradox Pokémon.

With the launch of the Pokémon Paradox Rift expansion, Paradox Pokémon cards will be stamped with either Ancient or Future depending on their type.

The Ancient stamp features the word Ancient in white against a background of ancient rocks, while the Future stamp sees the word Future in turquoise blue against a black background encased in a clear-fronted silver and purple metallic capsule.

Additionally Ancient cards will feature the lines of sedimentary rock across half of the text part of regular cards, while Future cards will feature a digital code of red and blue squares on a black background in the same position.
