‘Infinity Zone’ and Eternatus VMAX Officially Revealed!

Infinity Zone, the third Sword & Shield set, has officially been revealed by Pokemon!

This is one of the largest set announcements in many years, with a whopping 17 cards revealed! The set will have 100 cards before secret rares.

This is the first set we’re getting Pokemon V cards of Pokemon that aren’t in the Galar Pokedex, such as Houndoom, Scizor, Crobat, and Salamence.

The set will release in Japan on June 5th. It was originally called World Down, but was renamed a few weeks ago, likely due to the coronavirus pandemic. We will get the cards from this set in our August set Darkness Ablaze.

Thanks goes to our staff members Franco T. and Arantxa T. for the translations!
