A new Pokémon TCG expansion set, Sword & Shield—Lost Origin, has been released today worldwide. It reintroduces the “Lost Zone” mechanic, which is like a second discard pile that is generally inaccessible.

There are also numerous new Pokémon V, VMAX, VSTAR, and Radiant Pokémon included within the set, including some of Hisuian Pokémon such as Hisuian Zoroark VSTAR and Hisuian Goodra VSTAR.

A new Pokémon TCG expansion has been announced today by Pokémon, and it’s titled Sword & Shield—Silver Tempest. The set launches on Nov. 11, 2022 and features more Radiant Pokémon, Pokémon V, VMAX, and VSTAR, and is themed around Pokémon such as Lugia, Regieleki & Regidrago, and… Alolan Vulpix.

The expansion set contains the following:

  • 15 Pokémon V and 18 full-art Pokémon V
  • 1 Pokémon VMAX
  • 6 Pokémon VSTAR, including Lugia VSTAR, Regidrago VSTAR, and, interestingly enough, Alolan Vulpix VSTAR (not Ninetales!)
  • 30 more Trainer Gallery subset cards
