Upcoming Pokémon TCG Releases for Winter 2020

‘Tis the season of festivity – fall passes and winter blooms with the coming of snow, the ghosts and ghouls of Halloween, and the tacky Christmas lights that you really wish your neighbour would just take down from the moment they put them up. Yet, this year, in spite of its chaos, still shows us the spirit of celebration through social isolation, lockdown, and getting lost in the craziness of it all. And what better way to steer yourself clear from the outside world’s troubles than to hunker down, brew a cup of coffee, and treat yourself to some freshly opened Pokémon cards for your collection? I can’t name anything close, as nothing really gets you as snug as the feeling of satisfaction when you complete a page in your binder, or feverishly unwrapping a booster pack to find the gem of a rare card that you’ve been waiting for. So, to help us all get back inside, away from the disasters of society, and have a bit of seasonal joy, we here at Titan Cards have devised a very, very special treat for you, in the form of an expansive list of each and every upcoming Pokémon TCG release for this winter:


Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage 3-Pack Booster Display - 13/11/2020


Springing things into action for the snowy season, we have the Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage 3-Pack Booster Display. Blister packs are always a nice touch to any set – you’re guaranteed a nice promo card with some special art, and in general, they always feel like a nice mid-range budget choice to buy multiple booster packs at once, as opposed to having to deal with buying individual packs. For this particular set, Pokémon’s promo cards of choice are Sobble, who lives up to their namesake quitewell with this tear-inducing card art and Vaporeon.


This 3-Pack Booster Display includes:

  1. -          3x Pokémon TGC Vivid Voltage Boosters (each containing 10 additional playing cards)
  2. -       1x promo card
  3. -          1x coin


Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage Elite Trainer Box - 13/11/2020



At this point, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you haven’t hopped onto the trend of picking up a Pokémon Elite Trainer Box. Each one is always packed to the brim with exciting goodies, stunning artwork, and a box design that’s worth anyone’s while. But more than that, for value, they are quite honestly one of your best options as a collector, as the sheer amount that you get is simply unbelievable. What’s especially loveable about this set, however, is the adorable artwork. Gigantamax Pikachu swoons all of our hearts with this truly mega-level cute artwork. Just… wow. A must have for any Pikachu fan, and a sure hit for collectors alike.


This Elite Trainer Box will include:

  1. -          8x Pokémon TCG Vivid Voltage booster packs
  2. -          65x card sleeves featuring Gigantamax Pikachu
  3. -          45x Pokémon TCG Energy cards
  4. -          1x Player's guide to the Vivid Voltage expansion
  5. -          1x Pokémon TCG rulebook
  6. -          1x damage-counter dice
  7. -          1x competition-legal coin-flip die
  8. -          2x acrylic condition markers
  9. -          1x Collector's box
  10. -          1x Code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live


Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage Booster Packs - 13/11/2020



As with any new Pokémon TCG expansion, at the core of the product remains a host of booster packs. But, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t special. Pokémon does its best to revamp the artwork with each new release, and more than that, the cards that are held within these foil-wrapped packages are fresh, exciting, and what we need to know more about. So, what’s new about the Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage Booster Packs? Aside from the standard 10 Pokémon TCG cards, Pokémon has let us know that there are 185 listed cards in the set, and 203 cards in the set once you count all the unlisted rare cards that you can conjure up from a packet.


Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage Theme Decks - 13/11/2020



Theme decks never cease to be a fun and welcome addition to any expansion. For beginners, they provide everything that you need to get your start, and cost relatively next to nothing to get your hands on. What’s more, even as a veteran player, they can be fun to play around with, and tend to include some much-needed cards; energies, supporters, trainers, and even a few rare cards that you might need. Almost as if Pokémon is aware of the exact appeal of these decks, they seemingly have made a theme deck targeted at beginner players, and another for veterans. For the newbies, we have a deck themed on Drednaw – a new Pokémon to the series who is as cute as they are tough. For the returning players, we have a Charizard-themed deck because, let’s be honest, what other Pokémon has the appeal of Charizard (save for the mascot, Pikachu)? Practically no other. Charizard is a staple of the series the same as theme decks are a must have in any expansion. And what’s more, both the Drednaw and Charizard Decks come with some fresh and fiery artwork for us to drool over.


Each Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage Theme Deck includes:

  1. -          60x Pokémon TCG cards
  2. -          1x coin
  3. -          1x foldable TCG playmat


Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage Mini Portfolio - 13/11/2020



Now, while collecting cards can be all fine and dandy, there comes a point in any Pokémon TCG collectors’ career when the realization hits that they don’t have a suitable place to store those oh-so-special cards that they’ve collected. It happens to the best of us, and indeed, great cards really do need a great place to be stored, displayed, and shown to the world when the time is right. One of the best options on the market today has to be the new Sword & Shield 4 Vivid Voltage Mini Portfolio. It’s compact, lightweight, and easy to carry with you to show off. Something about it just speaks greatness, and we’re sure a lot of that also comes down to the sweet Gigantamax Pikachu artwork that it sports. As an added bonus, if you pick up one of these portfolio’s Pokémon has made sure to include a booster pack, so that you can have the chance to add some fabled ultra rare cards to your collection.


Each portfolio includes:

  1. -          Storage for 60 cards
  2. -          A Pokémon TCG booster pack


Sword & Shield Zacian and Zamazenta Ultra Premium Collection - 13/11/2020



The 13th of November is going to be a wild day with all the above-mentioned releases lined up, but what really spices things up and adds a huge amount of extra zest is the Sword & Shield Zacian and Zamazenta Ultra Premium Collection. Just one look at this absolutely beauty of a collection lets you know that it is something special. Gosh, from the sleek black, to the contrast of the gorgeous gold – it has everything down to a ‘t’ from the very moment you lay eyes upon it. If you’re a returning player, you may remember the effort and struggle it used to take to get a “gold” card; those solid gold coloured cards that were most definitely harder to get than a secret rare. Some required the most tiresome and immense effort imaginable, with some players even going to the extent of buying multiple booster boxes for the chance at just one card. Is it remorse? Is it a gift? We don’t know, but whatever the reasoning, Pokémon has decided to bless us this holiday season with the best gift of all - 1 special gold version of Zacian V, and 1 special gold version of Zamazenta V in each one of these sets. Wow. What more could you need?


Well, you could need more, and we know you probably do, so here’s what the Sword & Shield Zacian and Zamazenta Ultra Premium Collection includes:

  1. -          1x special gold version of Zacian V
  2. -          1x special gold version of Zamazenta V
  3. -          2x sets of metal damage-counter dice (12 dice in all)
  4. -          2x metal coins featuring Zacian and Zamazenta
  5. -          2x sets of card sleeves featuring Zacian and Zamazenta (130 sleeves in all)
  6. -          1x set of richly designed metal condition markers
  7. -          16x Pokémon TCG booster packs from the Sword & Shield Series
  8. -          1x player's guide to the first year of Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Series expansions and promo cards
  9. -          1x Pokémon TCG rules booklet
  10. -          1x code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online



Pokemon TCG: Collector Chest (Fall 2020) Rillaboom, Cinderace, Inteleon - 13/11/2020



Collector Chests are one of the more interesting and unique aspects of modern-day Pokémon card collecting. Indeed, they may just be metal chests containing a bunch of Pokémon products, but aside from that the chest itself is always something to marvel at. In many senses, they remind us of the collectable metal lunchboxes of yesteryear, and for that reason, something tells us that as the years go by, these may in fact become precious collectors’ items that fans will desperately claw for, paying greatly inflated prices from online sellers just to hold one. So, why not avoid the troubles of waiting a few years and paying an inflated price, and instead pick one up as soon as you can?


Each Pokémon TCG Collector Chest(Fall 2020) includes:

  1. -          5x Pokémon TCG booster packs
  2. -          3x foil promo cards (Rillaboom, Cinderace, and Inteleon)
  3. -          1x Pokémon coin
  4. -          4x colourful sticker sheets
  5. -          1x mini portfolio
  6. -          1x Pokémon notepad
  7. -          1x code card for the Pokémon TCG Online



Orbeetle V Box 20/11/2020




But, don’t be fooled! While early November surely has its share of great releases, the latter part also has surprises up its sleeve! Kicking the latter segment of November into gear is this great Orbeetle V Box!


The Orbeetle V Box includes:

  1. -          1x foil promo card featuring Orbeetle V
  2. -          1x foil oversize card featuring Orbeetle V
  3. -          4x Pokémon TCG booster packs
  4. -          1x code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online


Zacian V League Battle Deck - 20/11/2020



While regular TCG boxes definitely have their appeal, Pokémon steps up their game with this Zacian V League Battle Deck, which is essentially a new and improved rendition of a regular box or a deck. Rather than a booster pack and a few good cards, Pokémon knows what its competitive players need, and ups the antics by including multiple rare – and sought after – cards, as well an entire deck.


Here’s the specifics of what’s included:

  1. -          1x ready-to-play 60-card deck, including 2 Pokémon V and 1 TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX
  2. -          1x deck box
  3. -          2x acrylic condition markers and 1 acrylic TAG TEAM GX marker
  4. -          6x damage-counter dice
  5. -          1x competition-legal coin-flip die
  6. -          1x Quick Guide to unlock the strategies within
  7. -          1x Pokémon TCG rulebook
  8. -          1x code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online


Sword & Shield Elite Trainer Box Plus Zacian/Zamazenta - 20/11/2020



Finally, we have our last expected release for the month, which is the Sword & Shield Elite Box Plus featuring Zacian or Zamazenta. This release is similar to the above-mentioned Sword & Shield Zacian and Zamazenta Ultra Premium Collection, but tones the concept down into a standard Elite Trainer Box with a slight twist. Instead of one Elite Trainer Box, Pokémon has treated us to two, one featuring Zacian, and the other Zamazenta.


Here’s what the Sword & Shield Elite Trainer Box Plus Zacian/Zamazenta includes:

  1. -          1x special gold version of Zacian V or Zamazenta V
  2. -          6x metal damage-counter dice
  3. -          1x metal coin featuring Zacian or Zamazenta
  4. -          65x card sleeves featuring Zacian or Zamazenta
  5. -          1x set of richly designed metal condition markers
  6. -          12x Pokémon TCG booster packs from the Sword & Shield Series
  7. -          1x player's guide to the first year of Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Series expansions and promo cards
  8. -          1x Pokémon TCG rules booklet
  9. -          1x code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online
