The Coolest Pokémon Sun And Moon – Unified Minds And Hidden Fates Cards We Pulled From Booster Packs And Collections

by Brian Shea on Aug 23, 2019 at 10:00 AM

After getting off to a roaring start to 2019, releasing three large expansions in the first five months, the Pokémon Trading Card Game has experienced a relative lull in its expansion release calendar. However, the popular collectible card game is more than making up for it this month, as August has brought two large expansions for players to try and collect 'em all. Earlier this month, Unified Minds brought more than 230 cards, including several additional powerful Tag Team Pokémon-GX cards, and the game is closing out the month with Hidden Fates, a smaller-but-potent collection of cards.

While Unified Minds is a full, all-new expansion, Hidden Fates serves as a special expansion that does not offer booster packs. Instead, you can only obtain Hidden Fates cards through special tins and Elite Trainer Boxes. The Hidden Fates expansion offers several reprints of all-time favorite Pokémon-GX cards, as well as the series' first ever Tag Team trio with the legendary birds from Gen 1.

We were sent both theme decks and a ton of booster packs from Unified Minds, as well as some tins and an Elite Trainer Box for Hidden Fates. We cracked them all open to see which cards we could pull. You can check out my favorite cards from each expansion below.
