Last week, the Japanese VSTAR Universe special set was revealed, which will be the final Japanese Pokemon TCG set of the Sword & Shield series. The announcement was made during an official YouTube Livestream and revealed two brand new rarities heading to the game. These rarities will be AR (Art Rares) and SAR (Special Art Rares). Now, the English equivalent has been revealed, which will contain many of the same cards from VSTAR Universe.
Crown Zenith, releasing on January 20th in most regions, will include cards that didn’t make it into the English game from recent Japanese sets. Crown Zenith will be the final SWSH English set before we move into the Scarlet & Violet era of the TCG. Scarlet & Violet will see the return of the ex mechanic, which first debuted in 2003’s Ruby & Sapphire era of the TCG.
Before Crown Zenith releases, fans of the Pokemon TCG can look forward to Silver Tempest, releasing on November 11th. To check out the full set list of the upcoming set and the recently released Paradigm Trigger booster which many of the Silver Tempest cards come from, check out the links below –
