Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are exploding onto the scene in the Pokemon TCG expansion Paldea Evolved. The new set, which released on June 9, 2023, features nearly 300 cards spotlighting Gen 9’s Pokedex additions. Of these, there are a few players will be hoping to pull from booster packs either for their value, their art, or their playability.
As an avid fan of the Pokemon TCG, I was particularly excited to hear about Shroodle’s debut. While not the most powerful Paldean species, it is definitely up the list for the cutest – and Shroodle is only the tip of the iceberg for this amazing expansion set.

Best Cards For The Paldea Evolved Pokemon TCG Set
There is nothing more exciting than a full art Pokemon TCG illustration of a favorite companion or trainer, and Paldea Evolved delivers plenty of each. After opening the ETBs for this set and getting a look at the full card list, I was beyond excited for several Full Art options that can be found in booster packs for the expansions.
Below is a compilation of the most stunning art in Paldea Evolved, and where players can pick them up.

Pokemon TCG players can find all of the above cards in the Paldea Evolved Boosters, which are included in ETBs, Booster Boxes, and collectors sets for the tabletop game. With so many different Paldean species included in this expansion, it is the perfect way to pad out basic Pokemon cards for decks or collect stunning Full Art cards. It is definitely an exciting way to amp up for additional new expansions later this year.
