The Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Astral Radiance expansion is set to launch on May 27th, 2022, but there’s one way you can pick up these cards much earlier than that. All you have to do is snag the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Astral Radiance Build & Battle Box.
Select retailers are selling the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Astral Radiance Build & Battle Box as of today! You’re not going to find the Build & Battle Box early at locations like Target, but local hobby shops have been given the go-ahead to release this package early. Call around to your local stores and see if any of them have the item in stock.
Each Build & Battle Box includes a 40-card ready-to-play deck featuring key cards from current and prior sets and one of four unique foil promo cards. Depending on which promo card you get, you could add the swift Hisuian Basculegion, the mighty Wyrdeer, the menacing Hisuian Samurott, or the electrifying Magnezone to your deck. You also get four Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Astral Radiance booster packs and a deck-building tip sheet.
