The Pokémon Company International introduced a new type of Battle Styles gameplay mechanic, Fusion Strike Style, that will be featured in the upcoming Pokémon Trading Card Game:Sword & Shield—Fusion Strikeset launching around the world on November 12, 2021.
Decorated with a hint of purple and pink, Pokémon with the Fusion Strike Style often have attacks that focus on teamwork and reinforce the idea of strength in numbers, as Fusion Strike Pokémon generally benefit when other Pokémon with this Battle Style are in play. In addition, Fusion Strike Style appears on Trainer and Special Energy cards, which tend to assist Pokémon of that particular Battle Style and allow players to build a Fusion Strike Style deck.
Arriving in booster packs, Elite Trainer Boxes, and special collections,Sword & Shield—Fusion Strikeincludes 25 Fusion Strike cards such as Mew VMAX, Genesect V, and Hoopa V. In addition, Trainers can play with the following cards:
20 Pokémon V and 13 full-art Pokémon V
