Thanks to the Japanese releases being so separate from the rest of the world, it can be difficult to keep up with exactly what’s going on in the world of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Take the upcoming Twilight Masquerade TCG set, for example. This set releases in just a few weeks, but actually contains cards from two different Japanese sets: Crimson Haze and Mask of Change.

Night Wanderer was officially revealed to be the next Japanese Pokémon set. According to Pokebeach, the set was recently revealed this past Friday at the Japan Champions League Tournament.

Similar to how Twilight Masquerade features Ogerpon as its main attraction, Night Wanderer will feature Pecharunt, a Mythical Pokémon that appears at the end of the DLC content for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Okidogi, Munkidori, Fezandipiti, and Pecharunt are the star attractions here, all getting EX forms in the set.

The name ‘Night Wanderer’ reportedly refers to the The Loyal Three stealing Ogerpon’s masks in the night.

Notably, because this is a Japanese set, this means that Night Wanderer will not be coming to the rest of the world… at least in this form. Like Twilight Masquerade has cards from two different Japanese sets, a future English set will likely share cards from this set with the entire world. We are due to get a special English set in August, and many speculate that cards from Night Wanderer may show up there.

After Night Wanderer hits the scene, Japanese Pokémon players are due for a Tera-inspired Pokémon TCG set. Stellar Miracle will focus on Terapagos, the apex Legendary for the Scarlet and Violet DLC series.

Some of the feature cards appearing in Night Wanderer were also revealed alongside this new reveal. We will be sure to cover those in more detail shortly.

The new Pokémon Night Wanderer TCG set will be released in Japan on June 7th. The set contains 64 cards before Secret Rare variants are counted.
