We've got some very good news for Pokemon TCG fans! The release date for another big set is finally out, meaning we can all start saving and planning for deck upgrades and more in the coming months.

The next Pokémon set is Scarlet & Violet: Twilight Masquerade. It'll be based on the Crimson Haze and Mask of Change sets and will bring more monsters from The Teal Mask expansion to the video games. That'll seemingly include more masks for Ogerpon, who's likely the inspiration for the set's name.

PokeBeach states that the English set will also include cards from the Special Jumbo Card Set Ogerpon, which not only has a new version of Ogerpon in it but also a special Ogre Mask card, which they theorize could allow the Pokémon to wear different masks, and thereby change its types.

It's an interesting prospect, and being able to change up your subtype in the middle of a match is a fun quirk we're looking forward to being able to mess around with. It's always nice to get more options that can change things on the fly in a heated battle.

Scarlet & Violet: Twilight Masquerade will be released on May 24, which is only a few months away, and that also means that the prerelease for this Pokémon set will take place between May 11 and May 19. If you've got any ideas on cards that can support a type-changing Ogerpon, then now's a great time to try and grab them, as you've got time to build up some support cards and potential teammates.

It is a little bit weird to get this news before the next set, Temporal Forces has even been released, but that's just the kind of news cycle we're getting with TCGs nowadays. Pokemon does it; Magic: The Gathering is notorious for constantly hyping things up, too. Still, it's always nice to have something to look forward to.
