Booster Packs

Here’s a look at the five different booster pack variations available for the set:

Elite Trainer Box

There are two versions of the Elite Trainer Box for Scarlet & Violet—Paldea Evolved: the standard Elite Trainer Box (first image) and then the Pokémon Center Elite Trainer Box (second image), the latter of which is exclusive to the Pokémon Center website. These contain booster packs, card sleeves, damage counter dice, and more. The Pokémon Center version costs a bit more but has slightly improved contents—two extra booster packs, two copies of an “illustration rare style promo card” (one of which featuring the Pokémon Center logo), and potentially more.
