SET INFORMATION Do you feel like taking your opponent down with a single, powerful punch – or seizing victory with clever, technical attacks that keep your opponent guessing? You’ll soon get your choice with the release of the Pokemon TCG: Sword and Shield – Battle Styles expansion.
The expansion will debut an exciting new gameplay mechanic called Battle Styles, introducing two different forms of attack: Single Strike and Rapid Strike. The former is the Pokemon equivalent of a throwing a knockout punch; the latter is like a chess game using tactical attacks to build steadily to victory.
Single Strike cards are accented with red, while Rapid Strike cards are adorned in blue. Additionally, both Trainer and Energy cards are available in Single Strike and Rapid Strike Styles to help Trainers develop a deck around their Battle Style of choice.
The Sword and Shield – Battle Styles expansion will include Battle Style Pokemon such as Single Strike Urshifu V, Rapid Strike Urshifu V, Single Strike Tyranitar V, and Rapid Strike Empoleon V, among others. Combine previously introduced VMAX mechanics with the new Battle Styles, and you get Single Strike Urshifu VMAX and Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX in their Gigantamax forms.
Here’s what else you can expect from the Sword and Shield – Battle Styles expansion coming out in booster packs, Elite Trainer Boxes, and special collections (all sold seperately):
