The Scarlet & Violet Build & Battle Box was released as a prelude to the Scarlet & Violet expansion and offered people the opportunity to experience the cards before their general release on March 31, 2023. Tournaments were typically held on the weekends of March 18-19 and 25-26, 2023. Boxes could also be purchased from stores in the Prerelease Program from March 18; they were also included in copies of the Scarlet & Violet Build & Battle Stadium, which were sold from March 31, 2022.

Each box included a ready-to-play 40-card deck plus four Scarlet & Violet booster packs to potentially integrate useful cards into it. Decks comprised two of four possible groups of cards, including an alternate-art promotional card, as well as 17 basic Energy cards and an assortment of Trainer cards. The possible promotional cards included Quaquaval, Pawmot, Hawlucha, and Revavroom. Scarlet & Violet Build & Battle Boxes were categorized as Play Level 2.

The boxes could provide exclusive Non Holofoil versions of cards only available as Holofoil in Scarlet & Violet booster packs: Quaquaval, Dondozo, Pawmot, Revavroom and both Professor Sada's version of Professor's Research and Professor Turo's version of Professor's Research.
