Sword & Shield - Evolving Skies Officially Revealed

Published on 10 June 2021 at 15:24

The seventh set of the Sword & Shield TCG named Evolving Skies has been revealed by the Pokémon Company International.

This set will be mainly based off the Japanese upcoming main expansion set S7D Skyscraping Perfect / S7R Blue Sky Stream and the Japanese subset S6a Eevee Heroes.

This set will likely consist of the following Japanese sets mixed together:

 

The set includes:

  • Over 200 cards
  • 18 powerful Pokémon V and 15 enormous Pokémon VMAX
  • 33 full-art Pokémon V
  • 5 full-art Supporter cards
  • 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 release on August 27, 2021.


Eeveelutions V cards from the Japanese set Eevee Heroes are confirmed to be included in Evolving Skies. The set description is mentioning the following: "Eevee’s Evolutions appear in a full rainbow of Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX".

More specifically, TPCi has also confirmed Battle Styles Mechanic Eeveelution VMAX cards like Single Strike Flareon VMAX, Rapid Strike Vaporeon VMAX, Rapid Strike Sylveon VMAX and Single Strike Umbreon VMAX.

 

The recently revealed Dragon-type Pokémon including Rayquaza V / VMAX, Duraludon V / VMAX, Dragonite V and Noivern V from the upcoming Japanese July set S7D Skyscraping Perfect / S7R Blue Sky Stream will also be featured in Evolving Skies.

 

Along with the set information, booster pack images and product images of Evolving Skies also have been revealed.

Two versions of the Elite Trainer Box, with one featuring Umbreon, Flareon, Jolteon, and Leafeon and the other featuring Sylveon, Vaporeon, Glaceon, and Espeon.

 

Also Pokémon Center Exclusive versions of the Evolving Skies Elite Trainer Box have been revealed. These Pokémon Center Exclusive ETB's should be similar to the Pokémon Center exclusive Chilling Reign Pokémon Center Elite Trainer Box Shadow Rider / Ice Rider Calyrex that was revealed last week. The Pokémon Center Version of the Chilling Reign ETB costs $49.99 USD and includes 10 packs, 6 metal dice and 1 metallic coin. We think this could be the same for the Evolving Skies version.

 

Lastly the Evolving Skies Build & Battle Box has been revealed. This Build & Battle Box is available through your local participating Pokémon TCG retailer starting from August 14, 2021.
