The set description for Evolving Skies has been released, revealing it will indeed feature the cards from Eevee Heroes! As expected the set will also include cards from Japan’s Sky Stream and Towering Perfection. It will release on August 27th.
The Elite Trainer Box will feature card sleeves of the Eeveelutions.
Feel the power of the shifting winds, and brace for an epic storm as mighty Dragon-type Pokémon make their triumphant return! Rayquaza VMAX leads the surge from on high, and Duraludon VMAX towers above the land in its Gigantamax form, joined by Dragonite V, Noivern V, and more. As the clouds part, Eevee’s Evolutions appear in a full rainbow of Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX to signal a bright new day in Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Evolving Skies!
- Over 200 cards
- 18 powerful Pokémon V and 15 enormous Pokémon VMAX
- Dragon-type Pokémon return with a new look
- More new Single Strike and Rapid Strike cards
- 24 Trainer cards and a new Special Energy card
Evolving Skies will include over 200 cards, which means this theory will likely play out now:
Our next English set is Evolving Skies in August, which will clearly be a combination of cards from Japan’s upcoming sets Sky Stream & Towering Perfection. We don’t know for sure what will happen with Eevee Heroes, but it will likely be folded into Evolving Skies because of the “Evolving” in the name. The four Eeveelution V promos, the Inteleon/Gengar VMAX decks, and the promo starter VMAXes may be thrown in too since they were released at the same time as Eevee Heroes. This would form around a 200-card set.
Then since the 55 cut cards from Chilling Reign aren’t urgent to release, they will probably be saved for our November set. This could be our “mismash” set. The selling point of this set would be the new V-Union mechanic. We would likely get the first V-Union set from Japan in September — offering at least 70 new cards — which could form the core of our November set (like Japan’s Shocking Volt Tackle last September, which became part of November’s Vivid Voltage). This English set could also add the cards from Japan’s upcoming V-Union boxes and the second Family Box Set, which together offer roughly 50 new cards. All of this would form a 200+ card set for November. Of course, this is all speculation for now.
