‘Shining Fates’ is February’s Special Set!

Shining Fates will be the name of February’s special set! Its name and logo combines those of Shining Legends and Hidden Fates. We first teased the set several months ago, which will only be available through special products.

The set will contain over 90 cards for the regular portion and over 120 cards in its Shiny Vault sub-set. This includes over 100 shiny Pokemon, 30 Pokemon V and VMAX, and of course shiny Charizard VMAX. Most of the cards will come from Shiny Star V, which was released in Japan two weeks ago.

Update #2 (Thursday, 6 AM): Most product images and all product descriptions have just been revealed! Update #3 (8 PM): The Premium Collections and Mini Tins have also been revealed, so we can now see all the products!

Shiny Pokémon are so extraordinary that they’re almost never seen, and Trainers who catch them are considered quite lucky…and yet they can be yours in the Pokémon TCG: Shining Fates expansion. Celebrate the Galar region and the incredible Pokémon that live and battle there with beautifully etched cards—including the spectacular Shiny Charizard in its Gigantamax form. Seize your destiny and expand your collection with the Shining Fates expansion.

Shining Fates booster packs will not be sold separately, so look for them in special collections.

  • Over 190 cards
  • More than 100 Shiny Pokémon
  • More than 30 Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX

Shining Fates products will release on February 19th. As posted before, we won’t get a regular February set this year; it’s going to release on March 19th instead so fans don’t get overwhelmed by two big sets. It’ll likely be based on Japan’s Single Strike Master and Rapid Strike Master.
