Battle Styles mechanic revealed for the Pokémon TCG

The Pokémon TCG is getting a new mechanic called Battle Styles to correspond with Urshifu’s two forms. Some cards will be designated as ‘Single Strike’ or ‘Rapid Strike’, affecting gameplay in different ways.

These will first be released in Japan during January in two 70-card sets, with a Western release coming March in a single 163-card set.
