Last friday (August 27th) was the release of the seventh regular Sword & Shield set. Now we’re only a little over a month away from the long awaited Celebrations set. This is a special set – this means that there are no boosterboxes of this set, the packs can only be found in special products. Celebrations is our 7.5th Sword & Shield set.  Pokémon just unveilled information about our 8th Sword & Shield set that will release in November!

The set will be called “Fusion Strike” and release on November 12.

“Fusion Strike” is in fact a new mechanic for the game. Battle Styles introduced 2 new mechanics; “Single Strike” and “Rapid Strike” and now we have a third one: “Fusion Strike”.

Have a look at the amazing logo:

This set will include:

  • 20 Pokémon V & 13 full-art Pokémon V
  • 8 Pokémon VMAX
  • 20 Trainer cards  & 7 full-art supporter cards
  • 1 Special Energy card
  • In total over 260 cards! A new record?

By looking at the packarts we are certain that the set will contain cards featuring Boltund V, Genesect V, Gengar V & VMAX and Mew V & VMAX.
