As the second expansion based on the Pokémon Sun and Moon games, Guardians Rising shifts the focus toward the more exotic creatures found in the Alola region. In addition to the titular Guardian creatures, this expansion also introduces the legendary Pokémon that appear on the box art for Pokémon Sun and Moon.

We were sent 36 booster packs, as well as both the Steel Sun and Hidden Moon decks that are headlined by Solgaleo and Lunala respectively. We pulled the ones that were either the coolest or most powerful from the packs we opened and featured them in the gallery you see below.
