Hyper rare card (TCG)

Hyper rare is a type of rarity in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, introduced in the Scarlet & Violet expansion. They are Full Art Secret cards that showcase Pokémon, items, Pokémon tools, stadiums, and both basic and special energy on gilded cards with gold backgrounds. Prior to the introduction of the hyper rare rarity, such cards were often classified as secret rares.

Hyper rare cards are gilded holographic reprints of chase Pokémon from the same set, or reprints of commonly played item or energy cards, that were printed though not necessarily originating from the same set. Hyper rare cards feature an additional layer of glitter foil and can be identified through having three gold stars (Hyper Rare) as their rarity symbol.

Ultra Rare (Japanese: ウルトラレア Ultra Rare) introduced in the Black Collection and White Collection expansions can be seen as the cognate to this rarity in Asian language expansions, however this rarity does not provide a full overlap, as Ultra Rare cards from the Sword & Shield Series and prior were designated as secret rare cards. The Ultra Rare rarity denoted by UR (UR) rarity symbol.
