Darkrai VSTAR & Shaymin VSTAR Premium Collections


Two more store exclusives have been announced on Social Media for the Pokemon TCG, following the announcement of the GameStop ‘Eevee Evolutions Premium Collection’ and the ‘Mew V and Kyurem V Boxes’ being sold exclusively at Best Buy. The Darkrai VSTAR and Shaymin VSTAR Premium Collections will be sold at Walmarts across the US and will cost around $50, although no concrete price has been shared as of yet. 

The Darkrai Premium Collection will come with Darkrai V, Darkrai VSTAR and the VSTAR’s jumbo version. The Shaymin Premium Collection will also come with the V, VSTAR and VSTAR jumbo version of the card. Both products will also come with eight booster packs, a VSTAR marker, and an online code card.

Take time to stop and smell the roses with Shaymin VSTAR—then take flight into battle! In this Premium Collection, you will find this glorious Grass-type Pokémon VSTAR in both playable and oversize versions, as well as a copy of Shaymin V so you can really show off this Mythical Pokémon.

Start a comeback with Shaymin V’s Revenge Blast attack, which does 60 damage and an additional 40 damage for each Prize card your opponent has taken. Finish off the match and complete your comeback with Shaymin VSTAR and its improved Revenge Blast attack, which does 120 damage and an additional 40 damage for each Prize card your opponent has taken. If any of your Pokémon are in danger of being Knocked Out, take advantage of Shaymin VSTAR’s VSTAR Power, Star Bloom, an Ability that heals 120 damage from each of your Benched Grass-type Pokémon. You can never count yourself out of a battle when Shaymin V and Shaymin VSTAR are on your side.

You’ll also find eight Pokémon Booster Packs to help grow your collection!

Darkrai VSTAR description on the Pokemon TCG website – 

Plunge your opponents into total darkness with Darkrai! This Mythical Pokémon is a shadow master who’s known for causing nightmares, and it appears in this Premium Collection as both a Pokémon V and a Pokémon VSTAR. Darkrai V’s Dark Void attack hits for a powerful 130 damage and makes your opponent’s Active Pokémon even more vulnerable by sending it to sleep.

Evolve Darkrai V to use Darkrai VSTAR’s Dark Pulse attack, which grows in strength for each Darkness Energy attached to all of your Pokémon. You can also take advantage of its Star Abyss VSTAR Power, which returns two Item cards from your discard pile to your hand.

If that wasn’t enough Darkrai for you, the set also includes an oversize foil version of the Darkrai VSTAR card that you can display. You’ll even get a VSTAR marker and eight Pokémon TCG booster packs to bring in even more support for your team!
