Sword & Shield: Lost Origin is the first game in the series to implement the Lost Zone gameplay mechanic.

This new mechanism is expected to cause a major shift in the Pokémon TCG's metagame.

The Lost Zone serves a similar purpose to the discard pile, but cards placed there cannot be recovered during play.
