Pokémon Trading Card Game: Sword & Shield—Lost Origin Expansion Announced!

by Jacob Pierce 26 Jun 2022 0 Comments

June 23, 2022  The Pokémon Company International today announced the latest expansion for the best-selling Pokémon Trading Card Game, Sword & Shield—Lost Origin, available starting Sept. 9, 2022, at participating retailers around the world.
 
In Sword & Shield—Lost Origin, the Lost Zone gameplay mechanic will make its Sword & Shield Series debut and is expected to shake up the Pokémon TCG metagame. The Lost Zone is similar to the discard pile, but players will not be able to recover these cards during gameplay. Lost Zone cards such as Giratina VSTAR will feature a shadowy aura emanating from the artwork.
 
Furthermore, Sword & Shield—Lost Origin will be based on the popular Pokémon Legends: Arceus video game and feature more Hisuian Pokémon, including Hisuian Zoroark VSTAR and Hisuian Goodra VSTAR, as well as Radiant Pokémon such as Radiant Gardevoir. Radiant Pokémon feature Shiny Pokémon illustrated in etched artwork and tend to have a powerful Ability or attack.
 
Noteworthy cards from the expansion include:
 

  • Three new Radiant Pokémon
  • Six Pokémon VSTAR
  • 14 Pokémon V and one Pokémon VMAX
  • 30 cards with artwork featuring fan-favourite Trainers and Pokémon in the Trainer Gallery subset

 
Sword & Shield—Lost Origin will be available in booster packs, Elite Trainer Boxes and special collections, with the Sword & Shield—Lost Origin Pokémon Center Elite Trainer Box now available for preorder exclusively at Pokémon Center in the US, Canada and UK.
