What are V-Union Special Collection Boxes?
The V-Union Special Collection Boxes were a new product introduced by Pokémon for 2021. They launched in Japan in August 2021 and internationally on 24th September 2021.
Three V-Union special collection boxes are being released:
Mewtwo V-Union, Greninja V-Union and Zacian V-Union.
The boxes retail at around £32.50 ($45.00).
There is no indication that V-Union cards will be available in booster packs or boxes so it is likely that these special collection V-Union boxes will be in high demand.
What is V-Union?
V-Union is a new mechanic which sees four Pokémon cards combining together to form a Jumbo-sized V-Union card. These combined cards will add a new dimension to the Trading Card game.
The four cards will be regular-sized Pokémon cards that fit together to form a Jumbo-sized V-Union. The image shows how the four regular-sized Greninja cards fit together to form Greninja V-Union.
When you have all four cards in your discard pile you can place them on your bench. This will allow you to use the powers associated with that V-Union card. It can only be used once per game so should be used at the most opportune moment.
However, if a player has more than one V-Union each one can be used once during a game.
