The Pokémon Company International has announced that the new Pokémon TCG: Sword and Shield – Chilling Reign expansion will release at retailers next month.
Taking inspiration from The Crown Tundra downloadable content, the expansion will introduce eight Pokémon VMAX, 15 Pokémon V, 26 full-art Pokémon V, 28 Trainer cards, 13 full-art Supporter cards and three new Special Energy Cards. This adds more than 70 new Battle Styles cards for you to improve your Single Strike or Rapid Strike deck.
Calyrex will make its Pokémon TCG debut as a Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX in both Ice Rider and Shadow Rider forms, whereas new Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX cards will include those that feature Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres.
If you are interested in experiencing the expansion before launch, you can get a Pokémon TCG: Sword and Shield – Chilling Reign Build & Battle Box from your local participating retailer starting on Saturday 5th June 2021.
These boxes contain four booster packs, a 23-card Evolution pack featuring key cards from current and prior sets (with one of four alternate-art promo cards) and a deck-building tip sheet.
The Pokémon TCG: Sword and Shield – Chilling Reign expansion will release worldwide on 18th June 2021.
