With S9 Star Birth on our shelves, the Pokemon Company have left no time to introduce the next Japanese set, S9a Battle Legion.
Releasing on February 25th 2022 in Japan, the same day as Pokemon TCG: Brilliant Stars releases for the English TCG.
The most exciting announcement comes in the form of a brand new subset called Sparkling Pokemon with two pokemon revealed so far: Sparkling Greninja and Sparkling Hawlucha. These cards are reminiscent of Shining Pokemon from the past and could likely include texturised Pokemon like the Shining Legends Shining Pokemon. Alongside the potential texture, images show a reverse holofoil similar to the reverse holo cards from December 2021’s VMAX Climax.
A new type of Pokemon card reveal is always exciting and allows our imaginations to run wild with the thought of different versions of our favourite Pokemon. For TCG players, one Sparkling Pokemon is allowed per deck.
We’ll update this article with further information as we get closer to the release of s9a Battle Legion in February.
