On December 3, 2020, the Pokémon company announced that they would be releasing an expansion of their Trading Card Game – the Shining Fates Elite Trainer Box. The company hopes that this new release will be available to the public by early next year, 2021.
As you may know, the Hidden Fates expansion was released in 2019 following the popularity of the Pokémon TCG.
With the current expected release, the company detailed that there will be 100+ Shiny Pokémon on beautifully etched cards. These will include seven Pokémon VMAX, nine additional Shiny Pokémon V, and the collectible Shiny Charizard as well.
Moreover, this new expansion comes with three additional Pokémon. And each of the three inclusions will feature a Mythical or Legendary Pokémon. These three new additions will be vividly illustrated with rainbow backgrounds, which will extend beyond the frame.
Additionally, this expansion will allow the Trainers to play with fan-favorite and competitive Pokémon TCG cards. This will be enabled by the 30+ Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX from the Sword and Shield Series of this card game.
That said, let’s have a look at what this new release is expected to entail.
The Shining Fates Elite Trainer Box
This is one of the most anticipated releases in a while. That’s because it gives you a chance to unveil a Shining destiny.

But with the Shining Fates expansion, it will be much easier since you can get your Shiny Pokémon in the Pokémon TCG. This gives you a chance to seize your destiny, while expanding your collection at the same time.
Below is what this new expansion release will have 10 Pokémon TCG including:
· Shining Fates booster Pack
· 1 foil promo card with Eevee VMAX
· 65-card sleeves with Gigantamax Eevee
· Another 45 Pokémon TCG Energy cards

· Pokémon TCG rule-book
· 1 competition-legal coin-flip die
· 6 damage counter dice
· Two acrylic condition makers
· 4 dividers – to keep everything in-check
· Code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game
· And a collector’s Box for holding everything together
