The Astral Radiance Build & Battle Box was a special product given to participants of Prerelease Tournaments for the Astral Radiance expansion. Although not officially sanctioned, tournaments were typically held on the weekends of May 14-15 and 21-22, 2022 and provided an advanced preview of the expansion before its release on May 27. Selected stores could also sell the Build & Battle Box from the start of the Prerelease period. Copies of the box were later available in the Astral Radiance Build & Battle Stadium from June 10, 2022.

Each box included a 40-card deck that incorporated one of four specially stamped Prerelease cards for the expansion, as well as four Astral Radiance booster packs, a deck-building tip sheet, and a Pokémon TCG Live code card. The Prerelease cards for the Astral Radiance expansion were Hisuian Basculegion, Wyrdeer, Hisuian Samurott, and Magnezone.

The Build & Battle Boxes could provide exclusive Non Holofoil versions of cards only available as Holofoil in Astral Radiance booster packs: Keldeo, Wyrdeer, Absol, Hisuian Samurott, Magnezone, Adaman, and Irida. They could also provide re-releases of Non Holofoil Brilliant Stars Professor's Research originally from the Brilliant Stars Build & Battle Box.
