All Play! Pokémon events, including Prerelease events, are canceled until further notice. However, eligible retailers will be allowed to sell Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Rebel Clash Build & Battle Boxes to players starting April 18 without requiring Prerelease event attendance. Players can purchase their Build & Battle Box at any qualified Play! Pokémon retail location, without remaining on site for an event. Please continue to follow any local recommendations or restrictions regarding nonessential visits to locations outside of your home, and check with your local retailer about any changes in their hours of operation.
We hope this allows players to enjoy the excitement of a Sword & Shield—Rebel Clash Prerelease event at home. Contact your local retailer for availability, and enjoy collecting and battling with new Pokémon TCG cards starting April 18!
