The announcement also shows us the official logo for Crown Zenith. The blue and red being representative of the Legends of the Sword and Shield era, Zacian and Zamazenta.

What we already know about the set is that it is going to contain cards from Japan’s VSTAR Universe set which releases in December 2022 and we are also expecting it to contain cards that were removed from the English sets.

The set description on the Pokemon website says:

The Legendary heroes Zacian and Zamazenta shine with new VSTAR Powers, and an all-star assembly of Pokémon and Trainers arrive to celebrate the era of Pokémon V! Discover dazzling special illustrations in the Galarian Gallery, and wield the strength of rare and powerful Pokémon, including Charizard as both a Pokémon VSTAR and Radiant Pokémon. Many more Pokémon have their own tales to tell in battle as the Sword & Shield Series reaches its towering peak in the Pokémon TCG: Crown Zenith expansion!

  • Over 160 cards
  • 3 brand-new Radiant Pokémon
  • 5 colossal Pokémon VMAX
  • 8 shining Pokémon VSTAR
  • 17 powerful Pokémon V
  • 70 cards with special artwork in the Galarian Gallery

Official statement from the Pokemon.com website

Another exciting revelation from the official release is that this set will contain a 70-card Galarian Gallery (in place of the Trainer Gallery) featuring special artwork. Some of which we suspect will contain the new Alt Rare and Special Alt Rare cards from VSTAR Universe
