Pokemon Card Game Japan just revealed their new upcoming set for February, ‘Battle Legion’! It will be categorized as an enhanced booster pack like ‘Legendary Heartbeat’ back in 2020. The product itself will be released on February 25, 2022, and will cover 67 cards before SR, HR, or UR. 


Also, this set will introduce ‘Shining Pokemon(No official English naming yet). It will be a non-V Rule Box Pokemon and there can only be 1 copy of ‘Shining Pokemon’ in the deck. 


The pack will be sold at 260 yen/pack.


There’s still no further information about the set, will it contain another VSTAR, VMAX, or V-UNION. The information will be posted further if there’s a new official statement regarding this set.


So far, here are the cards that have been revealed:
