|Astral Radiance Build & Battle Box
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.
Each box included two of the following four different groups of Pokémon cards; one group always coincided with the enclosed promotional card.
Each box also included six random Trainer cards from the following, with no more than two copies of a particular card.
