The first set in the Pokémon Mezastar Super Tag series was released on July 8, 2021 and consists of 70 tags. It is the fifth set overall.

Information

The first Super Tag series set introduced the Super Tag (Japanese: スーパータッグ) mechanic to Pokémon Mezastar, which allowed two Pokémon to attack consecutively. Viable tags have a blue segment on the obverse that show a Pokémon's tag partner and a section on the reverse that details what move they can use. If a player used one of these tags during gameplay, Tag Attack Chance! (Japanese: タッグわざチャンス!) would trigger when the Pokémon attacked for the first time. During this phase, the player was presented with two semicircular graphics and moving icons of the Pokémon and their tag partner. If the player pressed the "1" or "2" button while the icons were in the green area, the two Pokémon would perform successive attacks. As with regular attacks, players could quickly press the 1" and "2" buttons during the animations that played in attempt boost attack power. If the player managed to launch a tag attack, the game forewent the Attack Roulette and Support Roulette for that turn; if they were unsuccessful or had already carried out a tag attack, only the main Pokémon would attack. Three Pokémon supported the mechanic in this set: Lucario, Cinderace, and Pikachu.

In addition to the Super Tag mechanic, the set continued to feature Pokémon that could Mega Evolve, use Z-Moves, or Dynamax. Grade 6 Superstar Pokémon Rillaboom, Cinderace, and Inteleon, as well as Grade 5 Star Pokémon Gyarados could all Dynamax. Dragonite could use a Z-Move, as could the final evolutions of the Johto starter Pokémon: Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr. Superstar Pokémon Salamence could also Mega Evolve. Other Grade 6 Pokémon in this set included Sun and Moon mascots Solgaleo and Lunala, the Wushu Pokémon Urshifu in both its Single Strike and Rapid Strike Styles, and the Rainbow Pokémon Ho-Oh. The set also featured the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi and a handful of Generation VIII lines.

As the first set of a new series, all upgraded Pokémon Mezastar machines featured updated UI graphics. The settlement depicted on the main menu had a carnival theme, featuring multi-colored cobblestones and more colorful murals on the walls. The area selection at the start of Get in Battle! mode no longer displayed the island but the three environment stages instead, including their names. Tags themselves feature different background artwork and a new numbering system—the collection number is reverted to "1" but is prefixed with "2". Two bonus features were also added in this set, the first of which was Tag Bonus! (Japanese: タッグボーナス!). Tag Bonus! could activate randomly during the Get Time! phase when an adjacent station was in use, which turned all of the Poké Balls on the Ball Roulette to Master Balls. The second feature was a tie-in with the Project Piplup merchandise campaign. One, two, or three Piplup could randomly add themselves to the player's Support Pokémon roster while playing Get in Battle! mode. If selected on the Support Roulette, a Piplup would attack with Bubble.

As part of a tie-in with the anime, Ash, Goh, or the Team Rocket trio could randomly challenge the player as a Trainer and Battle opponent. Together with the five standard Trainer and Battle opponents and the previously-launched Mezastar Navigator Sakura Battle Ticket that remained open for the duration of this set, nine different Trainers could be battled in total. While challenging the anime-related opponents did not offer trophies or Fashion Items, players were given the option to dispense a tag featuring one of their Pokémon after a battle—either Lucario, Cinderace, or Meowth. These Pokémon could not be encountered while playing Get in Battle! mode normally. Trainer and Battle opponents could also randomly appear as a selectable option on the right side of the area select screen from this set.

Players with Memory tags could add up to three new Partner Pokémon from this set: Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. Players using the Mezastar Club at any time during the duration of this set could receive a digital Support Pokémon Ticket for an Ice Rider Calyrex. A physical Support Pokémon Ticket for Shadow Rider Calyrex was distrubted as part of a launch campaign for the new series. A special Challenge from Sakura! campaign was also held between August 28 and September 15, 2021 for players in the Mezastar Club.[1] Players that defeated Mezastar Navigator Sakura during this period could redeem a crown Fashion Item for their avatar. The players with the top 100 scores following the campaign were sent a certificate in the mail.
