Collection: Pokémon Sword and Shield: Astral Radiance
Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Astral Radiance (Japanese: タイムゲイザー Time Gazer and スペースジャグラー Space Juggler) is the name given to the tenth main expansion of cards from the Sword & Shield Series of the Pokémon Trading Card Game (the Sword & Shield Era in Japan). The expansion continues support of the Pokémon VSTAR mechanic introduced in Brilliant Stars and features Pokémon from the Hisui region that were introduced in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Astral Radiance is the tenth main Sword & Shield Series expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game and was released on May 27, 2022. In Japan, it was released as the dual Time Gazer and Space Juggler on April 8, 2022, which together form the tenth expansion of the Pokémon Card Game Sword & Shield Era. Astral Radiance consists of cards sourced from the Japanese Time Gazer and Space Juggler expansions, the Battle Region subset, the VSTAR Starter Sets, plus a couple of S-P Promotional cards and some remaining cards from the VMAX Climax subset.
The expansion focuses on the Origin Formes of Legendary Pokémon Dialga and Palkia, which debuted in the core series title Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The two are included as Pokémon V and Pokémon VSTAR cards. The expansion also includes previously unknown Pokémon from the Hisui region, including a number of regional forms. The final evolutions of the Hisui starter Pokémon, Decidueye, Typhlosion, and Samurott, are all depicted on Pokémon V and Pokémon VSTAR cards in their regional forms.
Astral Radiance introduces Radiant Pokémon, which function similarly to Shining Pokémon from the Neo Series and Pokémon ☆ from the EX Series. Radiant Pokémon are all Basic Pokémon that portray the Shiny form of a species and have a Rule Box stipulating only one Radiant Pokémon can be included in a deck. The expansion also features another Trainer Gallery subset, which comprises more Full Art reprints that depict a Pokémon alongside a Trainer. Each Astral Radiance booster pack contains ten cards from the expansion, a code card for use with the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live, and either a basic Energy card or a VSTAR marker card. Each Time Gazer and Space Juggler pack contains five cards from their respective expansion.
When you open a Booster Pack of Astral Radiance you get 10 cards, 1 energy card and a code card you can use online.
Booster Pack Contents and Card Ratios
Each pack has a guaranteed pull of at least one Rare or above card. Most packs will include one Reverse Holo card and one Rare card.
However, there is a really rare chance of you pulling two Rare or higher cards.
Astral Radiance has introduced the new Team Gallery cards, which can replace the Reverse Holo/Reverse Rare Holo card when opening a pack.
A new type of rarity has been added called Radiant Rare. This rarity is similar to the Amazing Rare rarity seen in the Vivid Voltage set.
Pokemon doesn't release the chance of pulling certain cards from their Booster Packs. So, by compiling the hundreds and hundreds of packs opened, we can get a good idea of what those rates might actually be.
Astral Radiance Pull Rates
Below are the pull rates of Astral Radiance Booster Packs sorted by rarity. We did not record anything below the Rare Holo rarity. A pack is considered None if it did not contain a Rare Holo or above hit.
The chance of pulling a card from the Trainer Gallery Subset is 12.2%.
