Pokémon Japan has officially announced a set for the collectible card game Pokémon Incandescent Arcana, which includes mystical cards such as Alolan Vulpix VSTAR. The popularity of the collectible card game, which has become a cult and long-existing part of the franchise about the collection of monsters, has recently increased dramatically. Although some Pokémon TCG cards are actually useless, The Pokémon Company continues to release new decks that are beautifully illustrated and financially valuable.
The Pokémon collectible card game follows a series of video games from the 1990s, and the new Pokemon featured in the games are quickly popping up in the form of new colorful cards to collect. The Pokémon company often releases new boosters and kits, which allows the Pokemon KKI to constantly evolve, as well as its titled creatures. Actually playing a card game is one thing, but many collectors have made huge profits by finding and selling rare Pokemon cards over the years. While the recent rise in popularity of the game, many assume an increase in the cost of rare cards, the cost of Pokémon TCG cards has actually fallen due to overproduction of cards.

According to the PokéBeach fan site, Pokémon Japan recently introduced the S11a Incandescent Arcana set and the Alolan Vulpix VSTAR mascot card. This regional Alolan form of the ice-type Vulpix will have a unique special VSTAR ability that will help him turn the tide of any battle. This set, which is scheduled to be released in Japan on September 2, will include 68 cards, including Rare Characters and Shining Pokemon. Other notable cards included in the Red–Hot Arcana include Zarud, Fennekin, Shining Girachi and Coach Serena. Which release window outside Japan is unknown, Alolan Vulpix would be the perfect mascot for a set released in winter.
Incandescent Arcana is scheduled to arrive in the winter, and Pokémon recently introduced Pokémon TCG Halloween packages, which are scheduled for release in the fall. Boosters “Trick or Trade” will celebrate the creepy season by including such creepy creatures as Gengar, Zubat, Tymkabu and Poltigeist. It is reported that each card in the BOOster Bundles set of 40 cards will be marked with a stamp with the image of a Pikachu pumpkin, indicating that it belongs to a carefully selected collection of creepy cards. Trick or Trade kits will obviously be available by Halloween in October, which will allow trainers to give their decks a signature creepy style.
The Pokemon KKI is constantly being updated with new booster packs, and the Red-Hot Arcana looks like a particularly reliable addition to the card game. While the Alolan Vulpix VSTAR will serve as the set’s mascot, other exciting creatures like Fennekin and Radiant Jirachi will also be included to flesh out any fan’s deck. Incandescent Arcana is due to appear in Japan on September 2, and soon after that, it will probably appear in the rest of the world.
