A new Pokémon TCG set is on the horizon with Sword & Shield, Brilliant Stars, an Arceus and Charizard-themed set that is scheduled to be rolled out on February 25, 2022.
Although, before the release, collectors and players alike will be entitled to have an experience of this set, which features the new VSTAR mechanic, during the pre-release weekend.
Now as the promo cards launching on the prerelease weekend have been disclosed, let’s take a dig into the details to give a better idea to the Pokémon TCG fans.
What Is the Release Date of Pokémon TCG?
The set is set to roll out on February 12 during the pre-release weekend.
What Can We Expect From the Set?
This is when hobby shops can start trading Build & Battle Boxes for Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield – Brilliant Stars.
Build & Battle Boxes have four packs of the new set, one amongst four Black Star Promos engraved with the set’s logo, and a special “Evolution Pack” which is formed to assist players in setting up a deck.
The maximum shops will sell off to players and collectors alike, but several shops conducting unofficial events will give priority to players who have enrolled in competitive gameplay.
A few shops will have bonus packs of Sword & Shield – Brilliant Stars as well brought in from a booster box, but this is not assured. There is no permission given to shops to sell booster boxes during the pre-release weekend.
What Are the Promos?
The Black Star Promos that can be discovered in Sword & Shield – Brilliant Stars Build & Battle boxes have Moltres Liepard, Lucario, and Bibarel.
When Can Booster Boxes Be Sold?
Well, this question is quite complicated, since it depends on which store we are talking about. Tournament-official PLAY stores can start selling off Sword & Shield – Brilliant Stars booster boxes and separate packs on the Monday of release week, which would be February 21, 2022.
Hobby shops that do not have that official stamp and big-box retailers will start selling packs and other Sword & Shield – Brilliant Stars products beginning on February 25, 2022, the wide release date.
