Hello fellow Trainers! Today we are here to discover you the new Pokémon TCG set coming out in a couple of days to our shelves: Evolving Skies! Are you as excited as us to add some cool eevelutions to your card collection? We sure are! Let’s dive into what this set is bringing to our collection!
Sword & Shield—Evolving Skies includes Eevee and all of its Evolutions in the same expansion, and each Evolution of Eevee will appear as a Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX. Some Eevee Evolutions will also have Battle Styles, such as Single Strike Flareon VMAX, Rapid Strike Vaporeon VMAX, Rapid Strike Sylveon VMAX and Single Strike Umbreon VMAX. Before diving deeply into what else this set has to offer, let’s talk a bit about one of our all-time favorite Pokémon, Eevee!
What is it so special with Eevee? Well, this Pokémon is famous around town for its irregularly shaped genetic structure that is easily influenced by its environment. This allows Eevee to adapt to a wide variety of habitats by evolving when exposed to different Stones.
When exposed to a Water, Thunder and Fire Stone, Eevee will evolve into Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon respectively. Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon are the most know eevelutions but there are a lot more! If you expose Eeevee to a Sun Shard you will get Espeon; opposite to Espeon, you will get Umbreon when your Eevee is exposed to a Moon Shard. Leafeon evolves from exposure to a Leaf Stone, whereas Glaceon evolves from an Ice Stone. Sylveon is a special type of eeveelution as it needs to have high friendship with its Trainer to evolve! Which is your favorite Eeveelution? It is hard for us to choose just one but we are very keen of Umbreon 😊
There is more than Eevee everywhere within this set! Dragon-type Pokémon including Rayquaza VMAX and Duraludon VMAX will make their first appearance in the Sword & Shield Series of the Pokémon TCG.
It is said that Legendary Rayquaza has lived for hundreds of millions of years in the ozone layer, where it feeds on water and other particles. It is also able to soothe the other members of the super-ancient Pokémon, even in their Primal Forms. Steel/ Dragon Duraludon is a dinosaur-like Pokémon made of strong, but surprisingly light metal. Thanks to its body structure, it is resistant to earthquakes!
Dragon-type Pokémon have strong attacks but require multiple types of Energy, which will lead to even more engaging and strategic gameplay.
The set is releasing in a couple of days on August 27th, 2021 and pre-order for this product has been insane! You are still on time to get your Evolving Skies product pre-ordered at our online store, ready to be shipped over launch!
The expansion comes with over 200 cards, 18 powerful Pokémon V and 15 enormous Pokémon VMAX, Dragon-type Pokémon return with a fresh new look, new Single and Rapid Strike cards and more than 24 Trainer cards plus a new Special Energy card! You can find these cards in Booster Packs; each pack comes with 10 cards and 1 basic energy.
At Fable Hobby we are in love with Elite Trainer Boxes so sneak a peek on what the Evolving Skies ETB has inside. You can choose between the ETB featuring Glaceon/Vaporeon/Sylveon/Espeon or the ETB featuring Flareon/Jolteon/Umbreon/Leafeon. Each box comes with 8 Evolving Skies Booster Packs to grow your collection, 65 cards sleeves featuring Eevee’s Evolutions – Flareon, Jolteon, Umbreon & Leafeon, 45 Pokémon TCG Energy cards, a player’s guide to the expansion, rulebook, a 6 damage-counter dice to never lose count, a competition-legal coin-flip die, 2 acrylic condition markers and of course, a collector’s box to hold everything with 4 dividers to keep your collection organized!
A fun way to expand your collection is with Blister Packs, these packs come with THREE Booster Packs and a foil promo card featuring Umbreon (yas, guess who is already looking to add to its own collection…) or Eiscue and also a cool Pokémon coin to add to your collection.
The Build & Battle Stadium is a high-powered product including everything you need for two players to prepare and enter the battle. It includes 2 individual Build & Battle boxes, each containing a 23-card Evolution pack to build your decks, 4 additional Evolving Skies booster packs, 121 Pokémon TCG Energy cards, 6 damage-counter dice, 1 competition-legal coin-flip die, 2 acrylic condition markers and a collector box to hold everything in place!
Ah, we almost forgot! All product comes with a code for the Pokémon Online TCG, which will be available to redeem once the set is released there 😊
We hope you enjoyed today’s reading and we can’t leave without sharing a crucial question: which eeveelution will you first add to your deck once you open your new booster packs?
