Sword & Shield 4.5 Special Set Confirmed, Potentially the Pokémon 25th Anniversary Set

Published on 1 October 2020 at 12:59

2 weeks ago we were told by multiple sources that a Sword & Shield 4.5 set was coming, while we trusted them, but we couldn't confirm it yet ourselves. There was no data made available yet for the public. 

Now we have the data to confirm that this set is actually confirmed coming next year during the 25th anniversary of Pokémon. Our friends over at Total Cards have spotted that Ultra PRO listed the Sword & Shield 4.5 4-Pocket / 9-Pocket Portfolio's on their site, basically confirming the existence of this Special set.

What do we know so far?

  • We were told this set would be a tie-in with the upcoming 25th anniversary of Pokémon, that is on February 27, 2021. 
  • We were told that an Elite Trainer Box, Pin Boxes and Tins would come of this set.
  • We were told that this Sword & Shield 4.5 set would release on February 19, 2021. 
  • We were told that this set would take up a full set slot similar to XY - Evolutions did, and that Sword & Shield 5 would release on May 19, 2021.

Please mind that this summary so far is not yet confirmed by us, so we will update this story as soon as the first products of SWSH 4.5 has been officially listed. Information on this article is subject to change. 

What could be in there (Speculation)?

Wait a damn minute, are you trying to tell me that SWSH 4.5 is another subset that’s coming out but is released earlier than usual? I thought Pokémon releases one per year? If that’s true, then of course I’m excited. I can’t wait.

Definitely exciting stuff! Hopefully it isn't too many reprints.
