The Pokémon Crown Zenith expansion set is the final set of the Sword and Shield Series. It is a special set with no Booster Boxes. Cards are only available in Elite Trainer Boxes or in Special Collection Sets. The Crown Zenith set comprises a main set of 160 cards and a Galarian Gallery of 70 cards featuring stunning artwork.
This article takes a look at the cards most likely to be the Pokémon Crown Zenith Chase Cards. All but one of the ten cards are from the Galarian Gallery special art cards.
What are Chase Cards?
Chase cards are rare cards that have a 1/100 or less chance of being inside a booster pack. They are often one of the ultra rare or secret rare cards from an expansion set. If there is a full art Charizard in a set it is highly likely to be a Chase card but in sets without a Charizard card it is more a case of the cards that hold the most appeal due to their artwork, their rarity or their value. There are three Charizard cards in this set, but they feature in the main set rather than the Galarian Gallery. Read below to see if Charizard has made it into our top 10 Crown Zenith Chase Cards.
