The official Japanese Pokémon Card Game website has announced a new type of V card called V-UNION which takes 4 different V-UNION cards to create a powerful Pokémon card.

V-UNION

A Pokémon V-UNION is a powerful Pokémon V, played in sets of four! It is neither a Basic Pokémon nor an Evolved Pokémon and you cannot play it from your hand, but you can combine four different Pokémon V-UNION cards with the same name from your discard and play them as one Pokémon on the Bench!

A Pokémon V-UNION with the same name can only be played once during a match, but a Pokémon V-UNION with a different name can be played even if another Pokémon V-UNION is already on the field.

Pokémon V-UNIONs have high HP and four powerful Moves, and when they get knocked out, the opponent gets three prize cards.

Special Card Set Mewtwo V-UNION, Special Card Set Greninja V-UNION, and Special Card Set Zacian V-UNION each contain one promo card set, one card for each of the four types of V-UNION.

Mewtwo V-UNION

Mewtwo V-UNION has the Photon Barrier ability, which makes it immune to all effects of attacks used by your opponent's Pokémon. With Final Psyburn, a move that deals 300 damage, and Psyplosion, a move that allows you to put 16 damage counters on your opponent's Pokémon any way you want, you can effectively knock out your opponent's Pokémon. It can also accelerate its Energy collection with the Union Gain move and recover 200 HP with the Super Recovery move.

Greninja V-UNION

Greninja V-UNION has a move called Waterspout Shuriken that deals 100 damage to all of your opponent's Bench Pokémon, and a move called Waterfall Bind that deals 180 damage and makes your opponent unable to escape, allowing you to fight while interfering with your opponent's strategy! Union Gain, is a move that accelerates Energy collection, and Aqua Edge, a move that deals 130 damage with a single Water Energy, are also useful moves depending on the situation. It also has three Abilities. It can see its opponent's hand with its Probing Ability, it is immune to the effects of Items that its opponent uses from its hand with its Ninja Body Ability, and it cannot become Poisoned with its Antidote Jutsu Ability.
