We can exclusively reveal the English TCG will be getting another special set on January 26th! This is following on the heels of September’s Scarlet & Violet – 151. We don’t know the set name yet.
The set will see the release of an Elite Trainer Box and a new type of product called a “Sticker Collection Blister.” The blister will come with three booster packs, a promo card, and a sticker. This is the first time we’ve seen a sticker included in a blister product. More products should of course release, such as promo boxes and Premium Collections.
Our set should feature cards from Japan’s upcoming Shiny Treasure set, which is expected to release at the end of this year. Only the set name has been revealed so far, but as its name implies, the set will feature shiny Pokemon. This has been the case for past “shiny” sets like November 2018’s GX Ultra Shiny and November 2020’s Shiny Star V.
Historically these annual “shiny” sets contain reprinted cards from the past year, but with new shiny artwork. For example, we could get a shiny version of Tera Charizard ex. These sets always contain a handful of brand new cards as well.
Most special English sets release in the fall, but we have seen a couple release early in the year before. This includes Shining Fates in February 2021 — which was our last shiny set — and Crown Zenith in January of this year. The latter was not a shiny set, but featured some shiny promos.
Like all special sets, individual booster packs will not be sold. You will only be able to find the packs within special products, such as promo boxes and Elite Trainer Boxes.
We will bring you more information in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
