We have a date for the next Pokemon Trading Card Game set. The Pokemon TCG Sword & Shield: Lost Origin expansion will appear on September 9, 2022. When it launches, people will be able to get booster packs, an Elite Trainer Box, and as-yet-unknown special collections. It will also add the Lost Zone mechanic that keeps someone from cards sent to that area when discarded during play. (Normally, there are certain moves that allow someone to retrieve cards from the standard discard pile.)
Here’s the full list of some of the major additions in this Pokemon TCG set.
- 1 VMAX card
- 3 Radiant cards
- 6 VSTAR cards
- 14 V cards
- 30 Trainer Gallery subset cards
So far, a few of those special cards have been confirmed. Girantina, Hisuian Goodra, and Hisuian Zoroark VSTARs will all appear. There will also be Radiant Gardevoir in this batch.
Pre-orders already opened for some of the cards. At the Pokemon Center, someone can get this expansion’s Elite Trainer Box for $49.99. People can already pre-order booster packs alone for $3.99 each or in bundles.
The Pokemon Trading Card Game Sword & Shield: Lost Origin expansion will launch on September 9, 2022, and the Pokemon GO set will appear on July 1, 2022. Astral Radiance appeared before that.
