Pokemon TCG – SWSH12.5 release date announced! 

Back in July, a ban list that was sent to World Championships players in Japan inadvertently revealed the plans for a new English set code-named SWSH12.5. This set will be a combination of cards and promos that were never included in English sets, providing a fantastic way to catch up as the Sword and Shield draws to an end, and Scarlet & Violet kicks off. 

The special SWSH12.5 set will release on January 20th, just before the first Scarlet & Violet set releases in February. The ban list shared cards that couldn’t be played during the event but also added the set name of the English equivalent, with some of them labelled ‘SWSH12.5’. The reason for this is that the World Championships included players from around the globe, so certain Japanese cards couldn’t be played due to them not being in the English game yet. The ban list revealing SWSH12.5 cards also provided a partial setlist for the Lost Origin set that was released last month. 

Black Star Promos –


Do you hope to see more of these catch-up sets in the future? Maybe they will go back and release cards and promos from the previous series that didn’t get an English release like the Sun & Moon era?
