Pokemon TCG Shining Fates Expansion Includes More Than 100 Shiny Pokemon
The next expansion for the Pokemon Trading Card Game (Pokemon TCG) is called Shining Fates. Inspired by the game’s Hidden Fates expansion (which was released in November of 2019), the Shining Fates expansion focuses on Shiny Pokemon -- the rare versions of Pokemon that have a different coloring than their normal forms.
The Shining Fates expansion will feature more than 100 Shiny Pokemon on etched cards, including nine Shiny Pokemon V and seven Shiny Pokemon VMAX(one Shiny Pokemon VMAX card features Shiny Charizard in its Gigantamax form). Overall, this expansion will include more than 30 Pokemon V and Pokemon VMAX cards.
The first products in the Shining Fates expansion will launch around the world on February 19, 2021. They’ll be followed by two more product launches on March 5, 2021.
