The full details for the items releasing this weekend include:

  • First Partner Pack – Galar:  This is the first pack of over-sized cards that focus on the starters. The Pokémon TCG will release this Galar pack first with Scorbunny, Grookey, and Sobble cards with each subsequent month moving backward in time to the next generation. We're starting with Galar, then moving to Alola, Kalos, Unova, Sinnoh, Hoenn, Johto, and finally, in October, Kanto. These are meant to be displayed in the 25th Anniversary Oversized Binder which was released last week with an exclusive over-sized Pikachu card. These monthly sets will come with two packs. Early openings appear to show that the set will include Vivid Voltage and Sun & Moon base but we cannot confirm that it'll be consistent. Releasing March 5th, 2021.
  • Shining Fates Premium Collection – Crobat VMAX: The Premium Collections will include two promo cards (one V and one VMAX, each depicting the Shiny Variant of the Pokémon — in this case, Crobat), a coin, and seven packs of Shining Fates. Releasing March 5th, 2021.
  • Shining Fates Premium Collection – Dragapult VMAX: Same as above, except this will feature Shiny Dragapult V and VMAX rather than Crobat. Releasing March 5th, 2021.
  • Pokémon Spring 2021 Poké Ball Tin: These will include three booster packs and a coin. There is no word yet on what will be included. Releasing March 5th, 2021.
  • Sword & Shield: Battle Styles Build & Battle Kits: This box will be exclusive to hobby shops participating in the Battle Styles pre-release. The box will include four booster packs of Battle Styles before its release on March 19th, in addition to one of four promo cards exclusive to the boxes and a pack of playable cards from multiple different sets. Releasing March 6th, 2021.
