Will the Ancient and Future Mechanic continue in Twilight Masquerade?

The Ancient and Future mechanics launched in November 2023 with the release of the expansion set Paradox Rift which included a number of Paradox Pokémon that are ancient and futuristic versions of existing Pokémon. 

None of the cards revealed or shown as Promo cards in images of products to be released feature the Ancient or Future mechanics, so it could be that this set will not include these mechanics. A number of images of the set cards and Promo Cards have been 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. 


Will Twilight Masquerade include Ace Spec Cards?

Ace Spec Cards returned to the Trading card game in March 2024 with the release of the Temporal Forces set on 22nd March 2024. 

Pokémon Ace Spec cards are Trainer Item cards that have unique, special effects that are beneficial to the player of those cards. These effects range from drawing extra cards, to recovering Pokémon from the discard pile, to granting immunity to certain effects. As with any new mechanic the return of these cards will introduce new strategies into the Trading Card Game (TCG).

Seven Ace Spec Cards were released in the Temporal Forces set and the set release information shows that a further six cards will be included in Twilight Masquerade.
