The upcoming Pokémon Trading Card Game expansion, Sword
& Shield—Battle Styles, will be released on March 19, 2021, but you
can get some of these new cards early at your local hobby store. Starting March
5, 2021, select retailers will be
selling the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Battle Styles Build
& Battle Box, giving fans the opportunity to check out the expansion before
its release date and build a playable deck in the fast-paced Prerelease format.
This format lets players construct and compete with a 40-card
deck with four Prize cards set aside at the start of play. It’s a great way to
get in some quick games with family or friends and begin developing strategies
ahead of the expansion’s release. Each Build & Battle Box includes a
23-card Evolution pack featuring key cards from current and prior sets,
including one of four unique foil promo cards. You also get four Pokémon TCG: Sword
& Shield—Battle Styles booster packs and a deck-building tip sheet.
Use the Store
Finder to locate a retailer near you to ask about getting your hands on the
Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Battle Styles Build & Battle Box.
And don’t miss the full line of Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Battle
Styles products when the expansion
releases on March 19!
