Pokémon Sun and Moon were enormous successes for Nintendo when they launched on 3DS in 2016, and the makers of the Pokémon Trading Card Game hope to capitalize on that popularity with the new Sun & Moon expansion. The expansion boasts hundreds of new cards featuring the new monsters that debuted in the latest games, as well as new cards featuring classic monsters in either their original or Alolan forms.

We were sent a box of 36 booster packs, as well as the three theme decks that feature the three starters from Sun and Moon (Litten, Popplio, and Rowlet) all the way up to their third forms. We pulled the ones that were either the coolest or most powerful from the packs we opened. 

Scroll to the gallery below to see our favorite cards we opened from the Sun & Moon expansion. For our favorite cards that we pulled from the more retro-facing Generations and XY Evolutions expansions, head to this gallery.
