About this deal

Paldea Evolved TCG Set is due to be released on 9th June 2023 and includes more new Tera Pokemon Ex cards, the mechanic added to the new Scarlet and Violet Pokemon Games causing Pokemon to have a crystaline effect.

However, my delight dwindled to frustration as pack after pack yielded a Pokemon TCG player’s most difficult hurdle – I was completely overwhelmed with piles of basic cards. They spend their time chasing their toddler, playing casual Pokemon TCG matches, and destroying the kitchen with cooking projects. The new condition markers are stunning, the extra booster pack helps ease the sting of the hike, and the promo card featuring Pikachu, Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly is stunning. With the ability to pull rare, alternate full art cards of all the Gen 9 starters, as well as opportunities to amass a good deck-building base of basics, it is a great option for those intent on really creating decks promoting the new era of gameplay.

My first thought was how high-quality the pack felt, and I was delighted at how satisfying it was to rip the foil open.

However, those seeking rare cards, or who are after the high of finding Full Arts, may be disappointed with the low pull rates this expansion seems to struggle with. Anyone looking to add to their collection won’t be disappointed with this ETB, or the contents inside.

While the two bird Pokemon may seem like duds, Pelipper’s ability Hearsay, mixed with Wing Attack, make it a formidable opponent for a low evolution cost. Before the release date, we get teased some of the cards from the Paldea Evolved set and this preview page will keep you up to date with the latest cards announced until the big release date. With main characters of Meowscarada, Skeledirge, Quaquaval, Chien-Pao and Ting-lu adorning the booster packs.

It is definitely a beautiful set, and the Paldea starters add a bright and attractive splash of color. While I love pulling a Full Art or a rare Pokemon TCG Trainer, my frustration wasn’t at the low number of these alternate rares I ended up with. The Pokemon Center Elite Trainer Box has been revealed, showcasing the 3 starter Pokemon from the Paldea Region.Because of this, Pokemon TCG fans will want to be careful with how many booster boxes they invest in, and get together with friends to swap around playable cards they may be looking for. I was particularly lucky to pull Baxcalibur, which boasts both beautiful art and a wicked attack set. After opening all 36 cards in the booster box, and the 9 packs from my ETB, I found I had enough Fuecoco and Wooper to form a small army, but my collection of playable evolutions was frustratingly small.

That being said, the low rates make every rare pull that much more exciting, and I know the handful I now possess will all hold special places in any Pokemon TCG decks they feature in.Like with all ETBs I have collected over the years, the sturdy box is just as good for storing cards as displaying them on a bookshelf.
