May 6 - May 12 Weekly Events

Written by Jim Ziegler

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Twilight Masquerade is finally here to highlight everyone’s favorite Pokémon, Masquerain! Yes, this much beloved Bug-type Pokémon from Hoenn is… not in the set? Oh, well, it must be highlighting Meowscarada, the outstanding Grass-type Pokémon that evolves from… Meowscarada isn’t in the set either? Twilight Masquerade is named after Ogerpon?!


Ogerpon is the terrifying ogre of myth from the Kitakami region that you can visit in The Teal Mask, but in reality she’s among the friendliest and most adorable Pokémon you’re going to encounter. She’s just really, really lonely. Thankfully you can take her home with no less than five unique versions printed in Twilight Masquerade.


Ogerpon introduced a unique version of Terastallization, changing form based on which of her four masks she wore. In Twilight Masquerade, each of these masks translates to a different Ogerpon ex, so that she can fit into almost any archetype you build, at least in sealed. And while there are five different Ogerpons, there are a total of fourteen different prints, factoring in full art and illustration rares.
