The last Pokemon TCG Sword & Shield expansion has finally launched, containing stunning cards for players to collect. Here is everything to know about the best pulls from the Crown Zenith set.

The Pokemon TCG is preparing to shift into the Paldea region, introducing new expansions for the Gen 9 games Scarlet & Violet. However, one last Sword & Shield set has dropped, bringing a wide range of cards that celebrate the Galar and Hisui regions.

Crown Zenith will be released in multiple collector sets throughout the beginning of 2023. Like Shining Fates and Champion’s Path, players won’t be able to get these cards via Booster Boxes. Instead, they will need to pick up Elite Trainer Boxes, blister packs, and special collections to raid the boosters inside.
