Also getting in on the Pokémon Astral Radiance launch day deals, Amazon is marking down the Booster Box to $108.95.

In either case, these deals give you a chance to explore what Pokémon Astral Radiance has in store for the TCG. The Elite Trainer Box includes eight booster packs alongside plenty of other goodies like card sleeves, a players guide, rulebook, and other essentials for the card game. But if you’re more of a collector, the Booster Box is going to be your best bet with 36 of the new packs at just over $3 per.
Astral Radiance marks the first Pokémon TCG series to prominently feature new artwork inspired by Legends: Arceus with plenty of notable inclusions. There are a total of 180 different cards this time around, including full-art trainer designs, Hisuian variants of iconic Pokémon, and more.
