Pokemon Shining Legends

Launching in the UK on 20th October (was due to be 6th but got delayed), Pokemon Trading card fans will see a new expansion set available.

This Shining Legends expansion brings together some of the most interesting and powerful Pokémon available. Pokémon trading card collectors will have great fun adding these mighty Pokémon with their incredible moves, amazing abilities, and devastating GX attacks to their decks.  Shining Legends will include powerful Pokemon-GX like Mewtwo-GX,  Raichu-GX and Entei-GX.

The Shining Legends expansion features more than 70 new cards to collect, including special Shining Pokemon reminiscent of the ultra-rare Shining Charizard from the Neo Destiny set, as well as including ones such as Shining Jirachi and Shining Volcanion, and a slew of other legendary Pokemon like Shaymon and Marshadow.  

According to Pokémon, Shining Legends cards will not be sold in separate booster packs but rather only via special collector boxes but we have seen artwork for Shining Legends booster boxes so we will confirm once we know if we will be able to sell these separately. However, what we do know is that each booster pack will contain 11 booster cards, two of which are guaranteed to be foil cards. 

So to sum up the Pokémon: Shining Legends expansion includes:

  • Over 70 cards

  • 6 Shining Pokémon

  • 4 new Pokémon-GX

  • 3 new full-art cards

  • A new Special Energy card

Shining Legends cards will be available via a Shining Legends Elite Trainer Box, Shining Legends Pin Collection Pikachu & Shining Legends Pin Collection Mewtwo along with a Shining Legends Special Collection Zoroark GX box.
