Trivia

Origin

Tea ceremonies in Japan have endured as a cultural activity for hundreds of years. The characters in the card's name, 茶会 chakai, refer to an informal tea gathering, usually accompanied by a light meal and confections. The Petal Gather attack is a reference to hanami, the traditional annual custom of celebrating trees in bloom across Japan, which the Petal Dance Campaign coincided with for Kyoto in 2019. Electro Ball is a move in the Pokémon games that Pikachu can learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Sun.
