The Pokémon Trading Card Game is still a force to be reckoned with in 2020. Today, the latest expansion Champion’s Path hits store shelves and brings with it many new upgrades to trick out your decks. But what’s more, is that in addition to these great new cards, The Pokémon Company also unveiled four more additions to the Champion’s Path set, with details of what’s inside and when to get them.

Champion’s Path is based on the games Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, and kicks things off with The Champion’s Path Pin Collection, available today at participating retailers. These are three different expansion sets based on different Galar region gyms: Milo’s Turffield Gym, Nessa’s Hulbury Gym, and Kabu’s Motostoke Gym.
