New ‘Fusion Arts’ Trademark Filed for the Pokemon TCG!

A new “Fusion Arts” trademark has been filed by Pokemon. It’s under the same usage terms as the Pokemon TCG, meaning it could be an upcoming set or mechanic. In this case, it sounds more like a mechanic.

Trademarks are discovered five to six months in advance, so this would go into usage in the summer.

What do you think Fusion Arts will be? Maybe a spiritual successor to Pokemon LEGENDS, like Lugia LEGEND?

We also know about trademarks for V-Union, VSTAR, three upcoming sets named Eevee Heroes, Sky Stream, and Towering Perfection, and High Class Pack and High Class Deck.

    I believe it's a name of a (Japanese) set featuring the V-Union mechanic. It'd be really weird to have two mechanics that sound very similar, but do two different things.

    It sounds like an artwork label like Full Arts. Full arts are cards with the entire card being filled with art, so maybe fusion art refers specifically to cards that combine to create a larger illustration, which indicates Pokémon Legend, which indicates V-Union, which indicates we’re never going to get any more Amazing Rares. :(

    I really think you're right on this. Exciting times ahead of us, Battle Styles was already pretty good in getting me revved up, this new prospects are even cooler. Can't wait for rotation so we can leave Tag Teams behind us, good riddance!

    V’s are remixes of EX’s, which are loosely based off of ex’s; GX’s are loosely based off of ex’s as well, but have GX attacks which are original. Prism Star (and ACE Spec to a certain degree) are based off Pokémon Star, VMAX’s are similar to M EX’s but the two of them are distinct based off of HP gaps, prize differences and the “mega evolution ends turn” clause, Tag Teams are original, Break are remixes of Level X except for taking up the same slots as their standard counterparts, SP are remixes of trainers Pokémon from VS and the movie trainers Pokémon, Electrode from XY is a worse remix of Holos Pokémon, Delta Species are original and yet to be rereleased or remixed, Plasma are similar to Dark Pokémon but have no name clause, Trainers Pokémon from WOTC are original but in the same spirit as all other trainers Pokémon, Single and Rapid Strike Pokémon are remixes of Team Magma and Aqua Pokémon, Amazing Rare are original, and now we have V Union which are remixes of Legend. Missing any mechanics?

    Yeah sounds like it. I wish there was hope for Amazing Rares.

    They're done with Amazing Rares. Like it's only the span of 2 sets in US, UK, etc.

    Amazing Rares is not any different from the short-lived Steam Siege dual-type mechanic, Ancient Traits which IIRC only existed in two sets, and held items which were a thing only for promotional Pokemon back in the DPP era.

    I would like these mechanics to be expanded upon, but TPCi dropping them like they are hot garbage is not anything new so I'm not surprised.
