Prerelease promos for Astral Radiance revealed!

It’s been an exciting few days for the Pokemon TCG. Yesterday (March 8th), we got the official announcement for the Astral Radiance booster, with further information being shared about the prerelease cards of the set, which will focus on Hisuian Pokemon. These brand new forms were introduced in January with Legends: Arceus for the Nintendo Switch. In this new era of video games for the franchise, we got to see the origin forms of Dialga and Palkia, who will also be the mascot of Astral Radiance.

The prerelease promos for the set, releasing on May 27th, are the Hisuian forms of Magnezone and Samurott, as well as the Legends: Arceus in-game mounts, Wyrdeer and Basculegion.

These prerelease cards are alternate art versions of cards that come from the Battle Region booster that was released last month in Japan, and the twin sets Time Gazer and Space Juggler that will release in April. So far, we have seen several Astral Radiance products including the Elite Trainer Boxes, 3-pack blister packs, Build & Battle stadium and the Build & Battle Boxes.
