Welcome back PoTown Store readers to another article! Here today, we are going to be talking about all the newest Pokemon TCG cards to come out of the recently leaked, Sword & Shield Base Set. The newest form of powerful Pokemon is Pokemon V. Pokemon V are similar to Pokemon EX from the XY series as they don’t have a GX attack, but they have higher HP and can once again, evolve. Except like Pokemon GX, they don’t evolve from regular Basic Pokemon, they are the Basic Pokemon. The Pokemon V can sometimes evolve into Pokemon VMAX, which is like the Gignatamax evolution in the Sword & Shield video games. Pokemon VMAX are still somewhat a mystery in how they work, but for what we know right now they evolve from Pokemon V, gain massive HP, and are worth three prizes just like Pokemon TAG TEAM GX. The Pokemon VMAX in the set so far include Lapras VMAX, Stonjouner VMAX, Snorlax VMAX, and Morpeko VMAX. All of the VMAX Pokemon get over 300 HP which has only been seen on the Magikarp & Wailord GX TAG TEAM that came out around last year. The set also has quite a lot of good Trainer Cards, and non Pokemon V cards that I think will have a huge impact on the standard format. Be sure to check back here on the Po Town Store after Sword & Shield releases sometime in 2020 to get some Sword & Shield Pokemon TCG codes to get started with the new series! With that being said, I compiled a list of the top 15 new cards from the set that I expect to be great going into next format.
