The Sword and Shield era of the Pokemon TCG has been an interesting one, with plenty of high points, including Evolving Skies and Brilliant Stars, and just as many lows, with the likes of Rebel Clash and Battle Styles. Now, we’re just a couple of weeks away from the next set, Astral Radiance, and we at DualShockers were lucky enough to get a Booster Box and Elite Trainer Box to preview from The Pokemon Company.
Astral Radiance is the first set from the TCG to focus on the recently released Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which in theory, gave it plenty to work with.
There is plenty of new locations, items and characters, plus a handful of Pokemon that made their debut in the ambitious title.
But does this make Astral Radiance a good set? Let’s take a look at the product, the cards and my pulls and see just how good it is.
