Will the Ancient and Future Mechanic continue in Temporal Forces?

The Ancient and Future mechanics launched in November 2023 with the release of the expansion set Paradox Rift. These new Paradox Pokémon are ancient and futuristic versions of existing Pokémon. 

Although not officially confirmed, Promo Cards from the Elite Trainer Boxes are stamped with Ancient or Future depending on their type, so it is expected that this will continue.

The Return of Ace Spec Cards

Pokémon Ace Spec cards are Trainer Item cards that have unique, special effects that are beneficial to the player of those cards.
