Crown Zenith Special Set Revealed for January 2023, New Galarian Gallery Subset

Published on 3 November 2022 at 14:30

A crowning achievement!

Crown Zenith, the final special set of the Sword & Shield TCG, now has product images and the first set information.


There are "over 160 cards" and a subset called Galarian Gallery with 70 cards 'with special illustrations' has been announced. Crown Zenith will be available next year on January 20, 2023. Crown Zenith booster packs will not be sold separately, so look for them in special collections.


Crown Zenith was the long-rumored Sword & Shield 12.5 Special Set. The next set after this will be Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet.

Mewtwo VSTAR, Darkrai VSTAR, and Hisuian Zoroark VSTAR will be available for fans to find at the Galarian Gallery.

Trainers will also have the opportunity to gather and connect nine separate Galarian Gallery cards using a new linked illustration function to reveal a larger image.

The official Worlds Legal Card List last Summer revealed to the (Japanese) players that many missing Japanese promos would be featured in Crown Zenith. You can see the list of some of those promos in the article here.


We believe that Crown Zenith is partially based on the upcoming Japanese set Sword & Shield High Class Pack VSTAR Universe that is releasing next month in December. The revealed AR (Art Rare) & SAR (Special Art Rare) cards of VSTAR Universe so far:

The Legendary heroes Zacian and Zamazenta shine with new VSTAR Powers, and an all-star assembly of Pokémon and Trainers arrive to celebrate the era of Pokémon V! Discover dazzling special illustrations in the Galarian Gallery, and wield the strength of rare and powerful Pokémon, including Charizard as both a Pokémon VSTAR and Radiant Pokémon. Many more Pokémon have their own tales to tell in battle as the Sword & Shield Series reaches its towering peak in the Pokémon TCG: Crown Zenith expansion!

  • Over 160 cards

  • 3 Radiant Pokémon featuring Shiny Charizard, Shiny Charjabug and Shiny Eternatus

  • 5 colossal Pokémon VMAX

  • 8 shining Pokémon VSTAR including Zacian VSTAR and Zamazenta VSTAR

  • 17 powerful Pokémon V
