What are the Pokemon TCG V-Union cards?

So, V-Union cards are the newest iteration on the Pokemon TCG.

They require players to assemble four different parts of a single Pokemon to create on giant, incredibly powerful card.

There are special rules that come into place if you want to use the V-Union cards in battle.

They are as follows:

To play a V-Union Card, you need to play all 4 parts from your discard pile onto your bench.
When Pokémon-V-UNION has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 3 Prize cards.

They offer a high power option, with a high risk, affording your opponent three Prize Cards if they defeat your Pokemon.

It’s been pointed out that they look a lot like larger versions of the Legend and Break cards.

Initially, there will be a total of three different Pokemon available as V-Union cards.

They are as follows:

  • Mewtwo
  • Greninja
  • Zacian
