Sun & Moon Prerelease Kit
Expansion Sun & Moon
Types used GrassWaterPsychicFighting

The Sun & Moon Prerelease Kit is a special product given to participants at the start of Prerelease Tournaments for the Sun & Moon expansion. Prerelease Tournaments for the Sun & Moon expansion were held on the two weekends prior to the release of the expansion, on January 21–22, and 28-29, 2017. Each Kit contains a random set of predetermined cards designed to enhance the experience of the Limited format tournament that follows.

Included in each Prerelease Kit is a 23-card Evolution pack that includes one of four specially stamped Prerelease cards for the expansion, as well as four booster packs. The Prerelease cards for the Sun & Moon expansion are Shiinotic, Bruxish, Oranguru, and Passimian, with each containing a group of Pokémon cards that are focused around a particular type respectively: Grass-type, Water-type (and Lightning-type), Psychic-type, and Fighting-type. Oranguru, being a Colorless-type (thus not a basic type), is the only exception to not represent its own type.

The Sun & Moon Prerelease Kits provided one exclusive Non Holofoil of a card which was only released as Holofoil in Sun & Moon booster packs: Crobat.
