| Sword & Shield Build & Battle Box
The Sword & Shield Build & Battle Box is a special product given to participants at the start of Prerelease Tournaments for the Sword & Shield expansion. These tournaments were held on the two weekends prior to the release of the expansion: January 25-26, and February 1-2, 2020. The boxes were later made available to purchase at retail stores on February 21, 2020. Each box contains a random set of predetermined cards designed to enhance the experience of the Limited format events in which they were initially distributed.
Included in each Build & Battle Box is a 23-card Evolution pack that includes one of four specially stamped Prerelease cards for the expansion, as well as four booster packs. The Prerelease cards for the Sword & Shield expansion are Rillaboom, Frosmoth, Galarian Perrserker, and Cinccino, with each containing a group of Pokémon cards that are focused around the following types respectively: Grass-type, Water-type, Metal-type, and Darkness-type.
The Sword & Shield Build & Battle Boxes provided exclusive Non Holofoil versions of cards only available as Holofoil in Sword & Shield booster packs: Rillaboom, Inteleon, Galarian Obstagoon, Marnie, and Professor's Research. Professor's Research would later become more available in various preconstructed Theme Decks.
Each Build & Battle Box included two of the following four different groups of Pokémon cards, with one group always coinciding with the included Prerelease promo.
Each Build & Battle Box also included an additional random group of 4 of the following Supporter cards, with no more than 2 copies of a particular Supporter.
