Tournament Hobby Shops Can Now Sell Pokémon TCG: Astral Radiance
Today is the day! While Pokémon TCG: Sword and Shield – Astral Radiance will see its wide release this Friday, May 27, you’ll start to see official tournament hobby stores selling it today. the Pokémon TCG allows these stores to begin selling a limited set of items including boosters, booster boxes and Elite Trainer boxes on the Monday of the set’s release to combat the big box stores that are known to offer products when they receive them, regardless of the release date. Let’s see what you need to know about this new Pokémon TCG Position.
Here’s what you need to know when you start opening packets of Sword and Shield – Astral Radiance:
- Main successes: The main achievements of this set focus on the species introduced in the open-world RPG Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Some of the hits include Hisuian Typhlosion, Hisuian Samurott, Hisuian Decidueye, Origin Forme Dialga, and Origin Forme Palkia. You can find these cards in V and VSTAR form. Some of them even have full arts and alternate arts in the set.
- Trainers Gallery: To like Sword and shield – shining stars, this set has a Trainer Gallery subset. This means you can pull Character Rares, Character Super Rares, Full Art Trainers, and Black & Gold VMAX into the Reverse Holo slot, greatly increasing your pull count. The Black & Gold VMAX featured in this set are Ice Rider Calyrex and Shadow Rider Calyrex.
- Pokemon Radiant: This set features Radiant Pokemon that look a lot like the classic Shining cards. The species is depicted in its glossy form and the actual character and text area of the card is rendered in etched foil. What sets them apart is that a reverse holo pattern unique to this card type plays across the card.
- VSTAR Gold: There are three in this set, including Origin Forme Dialga, Origin Forme Palkia, and Hisuian Samurott.
- Alternative arts: They are still active and will likely be the main hunting cards. Alternate arts in this set include Hisuian Lilligant, Origin Forme Palkia, Origin Forme Dialga, Machamp, Beedrill, and Hisuian Sneasler.
