There’s a new program Pokémon is implementing for the release of Sun & Moon – Guardians Rising. Stores, like us, who host Prerelease Events will get to sell Guardians Rising product a few days early! We’ll be selling all the usual stuff on Monday, May 1st rather than the release day of May 5th.
Wondering what Prerelease Events are?
At a Pokémon Prerelease, players will get a Prerelease box which contains:
22-card Evolution pack featuring key cards from current and prior sets
4 Sun & Moon—Guardians Rising booster packs
1 of 4 alternate-art promo cards
Players will open all of the booster packs and use them to build a 40 card deck out of what they opened (we will provide any energies players need).The 22 card Evolution pack has some Trainer cards and some Pokémon to help you build your deck! If any of the players need help building a deck either the Pokémon Professor or one of her helpers will help out. Once everyone is done building their deck, players will be paired up to play a game! (When it’s a Prerelease, players play with 4 Prize cards instead of the usual 6.) This will happen 2 more times for a total of 3 rounds. At the end of the 3 rounds all players will get 3 Prize Boosters and 1 additional prize booster for each time they won.
