From the Pokemon Press:
Aug. 25, 2022 — Today, The Pokémon Company International unveiled the latest expansion of the best-selling Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG), Sword & Shield—Silver Tempest, coming to participating retailers around the world starting on Nov. 11, 2022.
Sword & Shield—Silver Tempest will introduce more Radiant Pokémon—such as Radiant Jirachi and Radiant Alakazam—which are Shiny Pokémon, illustrated in etched artwork, that often have a powerful Ability or attack. The expansion will also highlight more Pokémon VSTAR, including Lugia VSTAR and Regidrago VSTAR, plus the first Pokémon VSTAR in the Pokémon TCG to not be fully evolved: Alolan Vulpix VSTAR.
