We finally know what the Battle Stadium product is!
Evolving Skies will see the release of a two-player “Build & Battle Stadium” box, which will feature two Evolving Skies Build & Battle Boxes! It will also come with a variety of extra goodies, including four extra booster packs, dice, and Energy cards. It seems the product wants you to battle against a friend and introduce both of you to the latest set — like a personal prerelease experience.
The prerelease promos have also been revealed early thanks to this product: they are Flaaffy, Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres. The Flaaffy will come from Sky Stream and will likely be an alternate art version (it’s probably an upcoming Gym promo in Japan). No regular Galarian Articuno, Zapdos, or Moltres have been revealed yet. We will probably see them in Sky Stream.
The box will release on September 10th for $59.99. This is two weeks after the set’s August 27th release date.
Here’s the full product description:
