Pokemon Evolving Skies
Feel the power of the shifting winds, and brace for an epic storm as mighty Dragon-type Pokémon make their triumphant return! Rayquaza VMAX leads the surge from on high, and Duraludon VMAX towers above the land in its Gigantamax form, joined by Dragonite V, Noivern V, and more. As the clouds part, Eevee’s Evolutions appear in a full rainbow of Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX to signal a bright new day in Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Evolving Skies!
Evolving Skies is the seventh main Sword & Shield Series expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game and is set to be released on August 27, 2021. In Japan, it is set to be released as the dual Skyscraping Perfection and Blue Sky Stream on July 9, 2021, which together form the seventh expansion of the Pokémon Card Game Sword & Shield Era. Evolving Skies is expected to consist of cards sourced from the Japanese Skyscraping Perfection and Blue Sky Stream expansions, as well as the Eevee Heroes subset.
Skyscraping Perfection and Blue Sky Stream respectively focus on Duraludon and Rayquaza, both of which are included as Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX, the former featuring its Gigantamax form. The two are among numerous Pokémon represented by the Dragon type, which had not been featured in the TCG since the Cosmic Eclipse expansion of the Sun & Moon Series. Dragon-type Pokémon continue to feature attacks that can require two different types of Energy, although with the removal of the Fairy type, now have no Weakness. Dragon-type Pokémon also have additional aesthetics on cards, including claw marks in the top right corner, a gold-tinged graphic to the left of the Weakness box, and the Dragon-type symbol behind body text on non-variant cards.
