The Pokemon TCG has announced its next Sword & Shield expansion following Lost Origin. Silver Tempest will include a number of powerful Legendary cards, and will continue the Trainer Gallery seen in other recent expansions.

As the Pokemon TCG nears the end of the year, it has been announced another Sword & Shield expansion will be released late in the fall. Silver Tempest will add to the new VSTAR mechanic, featuring popular Pokemon like Legendary Lugia and Alolan Vulpix.

The Silver Tempest cards will release just before the new Generation 9 games Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, which have a confirmed launch date of November 18, 2022. Once the new region is available, it is likely the Sword & Shield expansions of the TCG will come to a close, marking the end of the V and VMAX era.

The Silver Tempest cards will also continue recent trends that have been popular among fans of the game, including the stunning full-art Trainer Gallery cards, and the Shiny variant Radiant Cards that highlight the fun, alternate colors of specific Pokemon.

When will the Pokemon TCG Silver Tempest expansion release?

The Silver Tempest expansion will release on November 11, 2022.

Like the Lost Origin set, players will be able to purchase the expansion via booster packs, booster boxes, Elite Trainer Boxes, and in collections that release following the launch of the expansion.

Silver Tempest sets are currently available for pre-order on the Pokemon Center official website in multiple formats – though it is likely these pre-orders will run out quickly.
