There are two new V Battle Decks coming to the Pokémon Trading Card Game in October, each showcasing a Dragon-Type Pokémon. Rayquaza V and Noivern V are the cover characters for this latest release, which aims to give players a ready-made deck to play with immediately. This appears to be a separate release from the Evolving Skies expansion, which will arrive at retailers in August.
Each deck comes with a standard 60-card deck, three reference cards, rules booklet, playmat, damage counters, a large metallic coin, deck box, and Quick Guide. The Rayquaza vs. Noivern bundle edition includes both decks as well as eight additional cards, including two foil cards. For fans looking to jump feet first into Pokémon TCG this fall, these are some pretty nice offerings, if you’re able to get your hands on them.
Supply shortages still abound in the world of Pokémon TCG, with retailers and consumers both clamoring for products and dropping some serious money to obtain them. A single Charizard card was sold in March for $311,800, proving that love for the hobby still runs strong. Demand is sure to be high when these Battle Decks arrive alongside the Pokémon TCG: Celebrations collection on October 8, 2021.
