Scalet & Violet - Paldean Fates Special Pokemon TCG Set Officially Revealed!

 Paldean Fates has been officially revealed as our special January set — featuring shiny Pokemon! We revealed the first set details a month ago.

As we previously reported, Paldean Fates products will have staggered releases: on January 26th, February 9th, and February 23rd. Different products will release every two weeks.

The spotlight glistens on Shiny Pokémon making their fated return to the Pokémon TCG! Shiny Pikachu blazes the path forward as Tinkaton, Ceruledge, Dondozo, and more than 100 other Shiny Pokémon follow. Meanwhile, Great Tusk and Iron Treads appear as Ancient and Future Pokémon ex, and Charizard, Forretress, and Espathra show off their own unique skills as Shiny Tera Pokémon ex. Shed some light and discover sparkling wonders in the Scarlet & Violet—Paldean Fates expansion!

The set breakdown:

  • More than 240 cards.
  • More than 130 Shiny Pokemon, including shiny Pikachu, shiny Ceruledge, shiny Tinkaton, shiny Dondozo, and shiny Tatsugiri.
  • 11 Shiny Pokémon ex, including Tera Charizard ex, Tera Forretress ex, and Tera Espathra ex.
  • Seven Pokémon ex and three Tera Pokémon ex, including Great Tusk ex, Iron Treads ex, and Espathra ex.
  • Three illustration rare cards featuring Shiny Pokémon and eight special illustration rare cards featuring Shiny Pokémon ex or Supporter cards.
  • Six hyper rare cards of select Pokémon ex, featuring a new and unique raised foil effect.
  • A handful of full-art Supporter cards.

Paldean Fates will be our version of Japan’s Shiny Treasure ex, which releases on December 1st. Our English set is also expected to include cards cut from Paradox Rift and unreleased Japanese promos.

This is the third English set to feature “Fates” in its name, following 2019’s Hidden Fates and 2021’s Shining Fates. In Japan, their corresponding sets all featured “Shiny” in their names.
