New special Pokemon set Champion’s Path has been officially revealed and is on fire! Expected release date of the first wave of the Champion’s Path is Sep 25th 2020. Full timeline of the release dates for all the products of the set you can find at the end of this article.  

In Champion’s Path, Trainers will have the unique ability to “recreate” their journey through the Galar region in the Pokémon TCG by collecting various pins featuring Gym logos as well as foil cards representing the partner Pokémon of each Gym Leader—similar to what they’d experience in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games. The set will feature over 70 cards. Key highlights from the set include 11 Pokémon V plus four full-art Pokémon V, three Pokémon VMAX, and one full-art Supporter card. Trainers will be able to discover Venusaur, Lucario, and Incineroar as new Pokémon V—plus Gigantamax Pokémon like Drednaw VMAX and Alcremie VMAX.

Champion’s Path Products

Champion’s Path Pin Collections

We will have six different versions of the Champion’s Path Pin Collection to choose from, each themed after a different Gym Leader in the Galar region with a corresponding pin and foil card. Pin collections will be introduced in two waves - those based on Milo’s Turffield Gym, Nessa’s Hulbury Gym, and Kabu’s Motostoke Gym will release on September 25, 2020, while pin collections inspired by Opal’s Ballonlea Gym, Piers’ Spikemuth Gym, and Raihan’s Hammerlocke Gym will launch on November 13, 2020.

Champion’s Path Special Pin Collection

Additionally, Champion’s Path Special Pin Collection will be available on October 2, 2020 in two versions representing the Stow-on-Side Gym and Circhester Gym. In each of these pin collections, Trainers will find collector’s pins featuring each Gym’s two logos and two foil cards showcasing the partner Pokémon of both Gym Leaders. 

Champion’s Path Elite Trainer Box

Expected on September 25, 2020, the Champion’s Path Elite Trainer Box features Gigantamax Charizard and comes with a full-art promo card of Charizard V, 10 Champion’s Path booster packs, and various gameplay accessories. Since The Elite Trainer Box features Charizard VMAX on the cover, this might mean an alternate art reprint or we’re getting Japan’s rainbow rare Charizard VMAX promo as a secret rare card. 

The Pokémon TCG: Champion’s Path Elite Trainer Box includes:
  • 10 Pokémon TCG: Champion’s Path booster packs
  • 1 full-art promo card featuring Charizard V

Champion’s Path Collection - Dubwool V and Hatterene V

On September 25, 2020, Pokemon fans will be able to enjoy Champion’s Path Collection—Dubwool V. And on October 23, the Champion’s Path Collection—Hatterene V  2020. These boxes include a foil promo card and foil oversize card of either Dubwool V or Hatterene V, as well as four Champion’s Path booster packs.

Champion’s Path Marnie Special Collection

Finally, the Champion’s Path Marnie Special Collection will be available on October 23, 2020, and comes with two Pokémon V promo cards, eight Champion’s Path booster packs, two collector’s pins, and a Pokémon TCG playmat.
