What is the Scarlet & Violet Paldea Collection?
The Scarlet & Violet Paldea Collection Boxes are the first Pokémon TCG products to be released for the Scarlet & Violet expansion series. They are scheduled for release on 6th January 2023.
The Paldea Collection comprises three collection boxes each featuring one of the starter Pokémon for Generation IX – Sprigatito, Fuecoco or Quaxly.
The box artwork reflects the type of each character. Sprigatito is a grass-type Pokémon based on a cat and its box is predominantly green with sprinkler type patterns in colours of the rainbow. Fuecoco is a fire-type based on a baby crocodile and has a box that is mainly red with the same rainbow coloured patterns. The Quaxly Paldea Collection Box is blue, reflecting its water-type characteristics with the same patterns as the other boxes.
The dimensions of the product have not been released but it is likely to be a similar size to the collection boxes of the Sword and Shield series. The boxes will retail at £19.99 in the UK and $19.99 in the US.
