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.

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.

It is definitely an exciting way to amp up for additional new expansions later this year.
