Dragon Type vs Dragon Type!
Rayquaza V and Noivern V are the next V Battle Decks. These decks are 'Level 1' similar to the previously released V Battle Decks - Victini V / Gardevoir V and V Battle Decks - Venusaur V / Blastoise V.
TPCi have revealed these products in a press release today.
Rayquaza V and Noivern V are existing cards with new artwork. Rayquaza V was originally released recently in Japan as a Rayquaza V (210/S-P) promo in the Japanese Dragon Pokemon V Get Challenge. Noivern V is a new artwork that we never have seen before. It is an alternative artwork to the Noivern V from the Japanese S7D Skyscraping Perfect set.
There are 2 versions of this product. 1 bundled product named V Battle Deck - Rayquaza vs. Noivern with 2 decks in 1 product. And another product that sells both decks seperately named V Battle Decks (Rayquaza V and Noivern V).
Both products release on October 2021 (no day named by TPCi). The bundled V Battle Deck version (looking at the previous releases) should cost $29.99 USD MSRP and the individual V Battle deck versions should cost $14.99 USD MSRP. Since we don't have the distributor information yet, we can't confirm the prices yet.
We will update this article with the official product descriptions when more information has been revealed.
Update: Releases October 8, 2021. MSRP is $29.99 USD MSRP and $14.99 USD MSRP confirmed. Added extra product images.
Update 2: Added digital promo images of Rayquaza V SWSH147 and Noivern V SWSH148.

These V Battle decks have been pretty underwhelming, hope these add a little more oomph to their trainer lineup. As it stands I would rather still be having theme decks, at least PTCGO has a cool format they can play in.
