Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Lost Origin now available
Once lost, now found...at retailers
The Pokémon Company International today announced that the latest expansion for the best-selling Pokémon Trading Card Game, Sword & Shield—Lost Origin is now available. You can check out the launch trailer for this expansion above.
In Sword & Shield—Lost Origin, the Lost Zone gameplay mechanic will make its Sword & Shield Series debut and is expected to shake up the Pokémon TCG metagame. The Lost Zone is similar to the discard pile, but players will not be able to recover these cards during gameplay. Lost Zone cards such as Giratina VSTAR will feature a shadowy aura emanating from the artwork.
Furthermore, Sword & Shield—Lost Origin will be based on the popular Pokémon Legends: Arceus video game and feature more Hisuian Pokémon, including Hisuian Zoroark VSTAR and Hisuian Goodra VSTAR, as well as Radiant Pokémon such as Radiant Gardevoir. Radiant Pokémon feature Shiny Pokémon illustrated in etched artwork and tend to have a powerful Ability or attack.
Noteworthy cards from the expansion include:
- Three new Radiant Pokémon
- Six Pokémon VSTAR
- 14 Pokémon V and one Pokémon VMAX
- 30 cards with artwork featuring fan-favorite Trainers and Pokémon in the Trainer Gallery subset
Sword & Shield—Lost Origin is available in booster packs, Elite Trainer Boxes, special collections, and the Sword & Shield—Lost Origin Pokémon Center Elite Trainer Box.
