“Paldea Evolved,” June’s English Set!
We can now reveal June’s English set will be named Scarlet & Violet: Paldea Evolved. The set logo hasn’t been revealed yet.
This is the first time a main series region has been part of an English set name. The name probably references the fact the set will feature the Paldea Starter Evolutions as Pokemon ex.
As we reported before, the set will release in English on June 9th. Prereleases will take place from May 27th to June 4th.
Paldea Evolved should be comprised of cards from Japan’s Triplet Beat and Clay Burst & Snow Hazard. Triplet Beat releases on March 10th in Japan. Clay Burst & Snow Hazard release on April 14th; they haven’t been revealed yet.
We normally get a May set, so a June release means the set schedule has shifted once again. Our first Scarlet & Violet set was shifted from February to March 31st (presumably because of Crown Zenith‘s special release). Shifting Paldea Evolved from May to June 9th allows there to be 2.5 months between the first and second Scarlet & Violet sets. Although speculation, it would then make sense for SV3 to release 2.5 months later at the usual time in August, thus putting us back on track with our normal set schedule (February / May / August / November).
