The newest Pokémon TCG special expansion set, Shining Fates, released worldwide on Friday, and the main way to get cards from this massive set featuring over 100 Shiny Pokémon is by buying the various Shining Fates products.

Yesterday, Marriland unboxed and did a thorough review of the Shining Fates Elite Trainer Box, which is a good starting point if you want to read up on the set. That’s not the only product that offers Shining Fates booster packs in it, though, so today Marriland will be taking a look at one of the three Shining Fates Tins, the Shiny Cramorant Tin, sent for review from The Pokémon Company International. You can watch the unboxing in the video above, or keep reading to see some additional thoughts and pictures of the tin and its contents.

Yesterday was the release date of the newest Pokémon special expansion set, Shining Fates, a set that includes over 100 Shiny Pokémon inside of the special Shiny Vault subset within Shining Fates, which itself contains 73 cards.

The Pokémon Company International sent Marriland some products from Shining Fates to check out and unbox (big thanks for that!), so you can either watch the video above to see the video unboxing, or you can continue reading to find out what the Elite Trainer Box contains and a few highlights from the set.

The first set in the Pokémon Sword & Shield series of the Pokémon TCG is set to be released on February 7, 2020, and Prerelease tournaments are going on from January 25, 2020 through February 3, 2020, so there’s still a chance to get some of the new cards early if you go to one of the Prerelease events.

Pokémon was kind enough to send over the three Theme Decks from the Sword & Shield expansion — Rillaboom, Cinderace, and Inteleon — which contain a preconstructed deck that is ready to go and play against your friends with. These are great for beginner players and also offer quite a few helpful Trainer cards for advanced players. In addition to the unboxing video above, I’ll list the deck contents for each deck below, along with my thoughts on it.

The Pokémon Company International sent me, Marriland, some really cool stuff for the holiday season to check out and unbox for you all! The above unboxing video features many items from the official PokemonCenter.com website, including some items from the new Holiday Lights line of holiday items, a bunch of Pokémon oversize card sets and product, and even a few useful items such as a nice Sobble mug!

You can check out the above video if you’d like the full scoop, otherwise I’ll share my thoughts and opinions on the items I opened up in the video down below.

Wrapping up the series of Detective Pikachu Case File reviews is this review for the Detective Pikachu Greninja-GX Case File (US$24.99), which is the priciest of the Case Files but also contains the most of the Detective Pikachu booster packs and, of course, contains two sizes of a cool Greninja-GX promo card — one of which is a massive JUMBO SIZED version.
