10 packs per box
Several of the Pokémon included in the subset feature artwork previously exclusive to English expansions and various items of merchandise. The subset also includes a large number of Shiny Pokémon, all of which are reprints of cards released during the Sword & Shield Era, have a special embossed Holofoil treatment, and are Secret cards. All regular Shiny Pokémon cards feature different artwork and come in the “S” rarity, while all Shiny Pokémon V utilize their prior Full Art print artwork and come in the “SSR” rarity. Other than Amazing Pokémon, Pokémon V, and Pokémon VMAX cards, all non-secret cards do not have a rarity symbol.
Shiny Star V contains 330 cards, with 140 of them being secret cards. This makes it the largest Japanese set, surpassing the 250 cards included in the GX Ultra Shiny subset. Shiny Star V also has a parallel foil set, featuring a Reverse Halo Holofoil variant for all non-holofoil cards in the main set. Each booster pack contains 10 cards instead of the usual five, with one guaranteed Pokémon V or Pokémon VMAX card.
