About Astral Radiance Cards

The Pokémon Trading Card Game's tenth core Sword & Shield Series expansion, Astral Radiance, was unveiled on May 27, 2022. On April 8, 2022, Time Gazer and Space Juggler, which together make up the tenth expansion of the Pokémon Card Game Sword & Shield Era, were published in Japan. Astral Radiance includes cards from the VSTAR Starter Sets, the Battle Region subset, the Japanese Time Gazer and Space Juggler expansions, a few S-P Promotional cards, and some leftover cards from the VMAX Climax subset.

The focus of the expansion is on the legendary Pokémon Dialga and Palkia's origin forms, which made their appearance in the Pokémon Legends: Arceus main series instalment. Both Pokémon V and Pokémon VSTAR cards for these two are present. The expansion also features a handful of regional forms and previously undiscovered Pokémon from the Hisui region. On Pokémon V and Pokémon VSTAR cards, the final evolutions of the Hisui beginning Pokémon Decidueye, Typhlosion, and Samurott are all shown in their native forms.

Trainer Gallery

Trainer Gallery cards provide unique artwork that depicts fothe the trainers and their Pokémon. Astral Radiance is described as having "a special Trainer Gallery subset of 30 cards with artwork highlighting fan-favorite Trainers and Pokémon" in the set description. Astral Radiance won't contain all of the leftover special cards from VMAX Climax because of the large number of Character Rare (CHR) and Character Super Rare (CSR) cards that are still available.
