After being previewed yesterday during the live broadcast of Day 1 of the Pokémon TCG Champions League, the Day 2 broadcast has officially unveiled a range of new cards that will be released with the upcoming ex Start Deck products that will be launching in Japan on July 7th.

A concurrent update on the Japanese official Pokémon Card Channel on YouTube today discusses many of these newly revealed cards in detail, including brand new Pokémon ex.

The ex Start Decks consists of 1 deck for eachof the eight Basic Energy types that currently exist in the Standard format of the TCG. Each deck is lead by a type-matching Pokémon ex, each of which is making these first appearance as part of these decks. Two additional and as yet unannounced secret decks are also released as part of a special deck pack, which can contain any one of the ten aforementioned decks. The eight decks announced today include:
  • :G: Decidueye ex Start Deck (Japanese: exスタート 草 ジュナイパー)
  • :R: Victini ex Start Deck (Japanese: exスタート 炎 ビクティニ)
  • :W: Greninja ex Start Deck (Japanese: exスタート 水 ゲッコウガ)
