Starting with the Battle Academy box that will come with everything a Trainer will need to master the basics of Pokémon TCG, including a two-player game board, three 60-card decks, tutorial guides, and gameplay accessories.
The Pokémon TCG Sword & Shield Fusion Strike expansion will introduce a new type of Battle Style gameplay mechanic called Fusion Strike, which often has attacks focusing on teamwork.
Available in booster packs, Elite Trainer Boxes, and special collections, Sword & Shield—Fusion Strike includes 25 Fusion Strike cards such as Mew VMAX, Genesect V, and Hoopa V. It also includes 20 Pokémon V, 13 full-art Pokémon V, eight Pokémon VMAX, 20 Trainer cards, seven full-art Supporter cards, and one new Special Energy card.
Lastly, The Pokémon Company International also announced new Lycanroc V and Corviknight V Battle Decks, which are ideal for Trainers who are familiar with the Battle Academy and want to level up their gameplay skills.
Each V Battle Deck provides everything a Trainer needs to play a game, including one 60-card deck and gameplay accessories. The V Battle Deck—Lycanroc vs. Corviknight bundle version comes with two ready-to-play decks that make it easy to jump into a Pokémon TCG battle, as well as eight additional Trainer cards to help enhance the decks.
The Battle Decks will be arriving next year in 2022, where these decks will also make great companions and extensions to Battle Academy, as Trainers can swap out cards in the board game with those in the V Battle Decks.
