What Is In The Battle Styles Booster Box
Battle Styles is the 5th expansion set in the Pokémon Sword and Shield series. It was released on 19th March and had sold out on pre-release in many stores. The release of some products was delayed due to a range of issues including increased demand, Covid-19, and bad weather in the United States.
New booster boxes are sealed a with clear film covering which has the Pokémon logo imprinted in white.
Each booster box contains 36 sealed booster packs. The booster packs for this set have four different artworks Tyranitar, Urshifu Blue, Urshifu Red and Empoleon.
How Good Is The Pull Rate
The term pull rate refers to the numbers of holo, rare, half art, and full art that are found in booster boxes. The higher the numbers of these cards, the better the pull rate.
Booster packs containing one of these cards generally contain a white online code card. Other code cards are green.
We opened a single booster box which contained 9 of each artwork. We logged the results by artwork and also as a total:
From the 9 Tyranitar artwork packs we pulled a Single Strike Urshifu VMAX 086/163, a Single Strike Urshifu V 085/163 and two holo cards Cherrim 008/163 and Kingdra 033/163. A pull rate of 4/9 or 45%.
Next we opened the Urshifu Blue artwork packs. From these packs we pulled a Tyranitar V 097/163, a Mimikyu V 062/163 and Aegislash Holo 107/163. A pull rate of 3/9 or 33%.
The Urshifu Red artwork packs revealed a Tapu Koko VMAX 051/163 and three Holo cards Luxray 048/163, Steelix 099/163 and Cherrim 008/163. A 4/9 or 45% pull rate.
Finally we opened the 9 packs with Empoleon artwork. From these packs we pulled two Ultra rare full art cards Flapple V 143/163 and Corviknight 156/163, one half art card, Corviknight V 109/163 and a holo Octillery 037/163. A pull rate of 4/9 or 45%.
Overall, from the 36 booster packs we opened we pulled 2 VMAX full art cards, 2 ultra rare full art cards, 4 V half art cards and 7 holo cards.

The Booster Box Includes
A Booster Box is essentially what you’ll see at a hobby shop when you go to buy a pack of Battle Styles. These can be purchased as a complete, sealed item as well, and it’s many collectors’ favorite way to get the full experience of a series. If you want the best shot at pulling holos, Ultra Rares, and Full Arts, a Booster Box will pretty much guarantee a handful of great pulls every time because you’re looking at 36 packs.

Impressions Of Pokmon Tcg: Battle Styles
Something that I noticed after opening a handful of Battle Styles packs was the strength of the holos. As a longtime collector, I can tell you that the feeling of pulling a holographic card back in the early days of Pokémon TCG, when a holo was the absolute rarest pull in existence, is far different from the feeling of pulling a holo today. Now, we collectors crack into packs with the hope of pulling Ultra Rare cards like Vs, VMAXs, Full Arts, and even Hyper Rare Rainbow and Gold cards. On top of this, many collectors, myself included, miss the classic galaxy foil holo pattern. All that said, I was blown away by the quality of the holos in Battle Styles. To say that they’ve improved during the Sword & Shield era is an understatement. With previous expansions, I’d be happy to pull a holo but I found myself getting hyped when I pulled the Entei, the Aegislash, and the Orbeetle.
Personally, I think it comes down to color choice. It feels as if the artists behind these cards are getting more used to this new style of liney holographic cards, and are now coloring in a way that leans into this holo pattern. It has created a set of holos that made me remember how exciting it was when holos were king.
The artwork in Battle Styles, in general, is terrific, with great use of storytelling that takes place over multiple cards as well as a few disarmingly cute cards, like the above Espurr and the set’s Spoink card.
