Reveals Quagsire V as a gym promo


Pokémon TCG Japan has revealed the pack art and maps for Paradigm Triggerthe last set of the main series of the Sword and Shield time. Paradigm Trigger is slated for release on October 21, 2022 in Japan. So far, we can confirm that this set primarily focuses on Lugia and contains a Lugia VSTAR, with the Galarian Legendaries Regidrago and Regieleki also appearing on the pack art. Regidrago will receive a VSTAR while Regieleki will appear on a VMAX. Along with the main set, there will also be promo packs given out with booster boxes containing more cards, including a Lugia VSTAR with different art. This set, as well as the direct previous Japanese set Incandescent Arcana which focused on Alolan Vulpix, will be the basis for the fourth and final English Sword and Shield set of 2022, which should close the era for international audiences. Along with the release of Paradigm Triggerwe also get a new pack of Gym Promos.
