The Paradox Rift Build & Battle Box was released as a prelude to the Paradox Rift expansion and offered people the opportunity to experience the cards before their general release on November 3, 2023. Tournaments were typically held on the weekends of October 21-22 and October 28-29, 2023. Boxes could also be purchased from stores in the Prerelease Program from October 20, 2023; they were also included in copies of the Paradox Rift Build & Battle Stadium, which were sold from November 17, 2023.

Each box included a ready-to-play 40-card deck plus four Paradox Rift booster packs to potentially integrate useful cards into it. Decks comprised two of four possible groups of cards, including an alternate-art promotional card, as well as 17 basic Energy cards and an assortment of Trainer cards. The possible promotional cards included Chi-Yu, Iron Bundle, Xatu, and Aegislash. Paradox Rift Build & Battle Boxes were categorized as Play Level 2.

The boxes could provide exclusive Non Holofoil versions of cards only available as Holofoil in Paradox Rift booster packs: Iron Moth, Chi-Yu, Golisopod, Xatu, Espathra, and Aegislash.

Each box included two of the following four different groups of Pokémon cards; one group always coincided with the enclosed promotional card.
