His Pokemon streams are always family-friendly.   Watch here: https://www.twitch.tv/verioth   TOMORROW: Saturday, March 6 @ 12:00 noon Sword & Shield Battle Styles Pre-Release! If you pre-ordered a Pre-Release Kit online, we will have that ready for you to pick up.  Unfortunately, we are sold out of the kits at this time, but we will be getting more Build & Battle Boxes in early April. Regardless, we will have Battle Styles promo posters to give out to everyone who stops by! When we open at 12 noon, we will also have a very limited supply of Shining Fates product on a first-come, first-served, and 1 item per customer basis (ETBs $99, Tin $59.99, Pikachu V box $39.99, and Pin Collection $29.99, plus Premium Collection Crobat and Dragapult VMAX boxes $69.99). OTHER POKEMON UPDATES: 25th Anniversary First Partner Packs (Galar) have been delayed one business day and will be available Monday, March 8.  Battle Styles Elite Trainer Boxes and Booster Boxes are up for pre-order on the website for 3/19 release. We do expect to be allocated more product throughout the two waves. Did You Know? There is a Release Dates page on this website where we list all of the Pokemon (and other) product release dates for you in one place. Check it out! We are constantly on the lookout for more Pokemon product, but even our distributors are wiped out. Keep checking the website for product because we will grab random amounts of stuff whenever we can.    

What's Happening with Pokemon Battle Styles?

What's Happening with Pokemon Battle Styles?

by Christine Mabry Battle Styles, Pokemon, Preorders

Hello, Blackrowan Games Pokemon Family! We are happy to (finally) share what is going on with Pokemon Battle Styles and how you can get some. Pre-Orders through the website will open on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 6:00 pm. Pre-Orders are limited to one (1) of each item per customer. Orders exceeding the pre-order limit, including multiple orders, will be cancelled and refunded without further explanation. Battle Styles is the 5th set of the Sword & Shield series, i.e., it's a regular quarterly set and not a special set like Shining Fates, and it is the first expansion to feature two new variants of cards: Single Strike and Rapid Strike. Single Strike cards deliver powerful, hard-hitting attacks that can Knock Out an opponent in a single blow. Rapid Strike cards use sneaky, and technical attacks. The Battle Styles set will have Elite Trainer Boxes, Booster Boxes (and individual packs), and Build & Battle Boxes. There will also be some special boxes containing Battle Styles packs, Blastoise/Venusaur VMAX and Urshihfu V, release TBD. Battle Styles items will be distributed to stores in 2 Waves (Wave 1: 3/19; Wave 2: TBD), so order accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Some shipments may be delayed due to severe weather in other parts of the country. Check our social media for updates. Release Date: Item: 3/6/21 PRE-RELEASE: Battle Styles Pre-Release Kit (Build & Battle Box + 3 bonus booster packs) 3/19/21 WAVE 1: Battle Styles Elite Trainer Box Single Strike Urshifu (Red) or Rapid Strike Urshifu (Blue) 3/19/21 WAVE 1: Battle Styles Booster Box (36 packs) 4/2/21 Battle Styles Build & Battle Boxes TBD WAVE 2: ETBs & Booster Boxes
