A new variant of the Build & Battle Boxes are coming starting with Evolving Skies.
This is called the Evolving Skies Build & Battle Stadium. It contains 2 Evolving Skies Build & Battle Boxes, 4 extra booster packs (making it 12 packs total), 121 energy cards, 6 damage counter dice, 2 condition markers, and a flip die.
It's essentially a way of holding your own mini prerelease tournament at home with 2 players. This looks to be a regular retail product so when Evolving Skies has been released, you could most likely walk into a retail store and pick this product up 2 weeks later.
Also the sell sheet revealed the Evolving Skies Prerelease promos very early. The Evolving Skies Prerelease promos are:
- Galarian Articuno
- Galarian Zapdos
- Galarian Moltres
Flaaffy looks to be the Dynamotor ability version from S7R Blue Sky Stream. We have not seen regular cards yet of Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres, so we expect them to be revealed later in the Japanese upcoming main expansion set S7D Skyscraping Perfect / S7R Blue Sky Stream.
The Evolving Skies Build & Battle Stadium releases on September 10, 2021 (2 weeks after the Evolving Skies release) and is MSRP is $59.99 USD.
