In June 2021, Pokémon announced the release of a series of V Union Cards. They released in Japan in August 2021 as part of the Japanese Towering Perfection and Sky Stream expansions, and internationally the following month.
What are V Union Cards?
V Union Cards are special Jumbo-sized cards which are formed by combining 4 regular-sized cards. The cards are full art cards with each of the 4 regular-sized cards containing a quarter of the finished card.
The cards were launched with three different characters: Greninja V, Mewtwo V and Zacian V. Each character had its own special collection box.
Two further V Union cards were subsequently released – Pikachu V Union in October 2021 and Morpeko V Union in April 2022.
The illustration on this page depicts Greninja V. For images and details of all V Union cards please see our V Union Card List page.
Due to the fact that only five titles have been released, these special cards are popular with collectors.
Despite the obvious appeal to collectors, these cards have been designed for players of the Trading Card Game. Although they cannot be played directly from a player’s hand, they can be used from the discard pile.
V Union cards have a high HP and also have special unique abilities. Initial feelings among players are mixed with some welcoming the new move while others feel they are an unnecessary gimmick.
