V Battle Deck successor?
ex Battle Decks featuring Lucario ex or Ampharos ex will be available for release on May 5, 2023, coinciding with the launch of the Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR League Battle Deck.
These ex Battle Decks will include ex cards highly likely sourced from the Japanese Scarlet & Violet Starter Set ex, specifically Sprigatito & Lucario ex / Fuecoco & Ampharos ex / Quaxly & Mimikyu ex.
It should be noted that these ex Battle Decks are not designed for competitive play and are most likely (not confirmed yet) categorized as Level 2 or Level 1 products, unlike the Mew VMAX League Battle Deck or the Origin Palkia VSTAR League Battle Deck, which are Level 3 products.
It's worth noting that this might serve as the next iteration of the V Battle Decks that are released every quarter, although we have transitioned from V cards to ex cards. So hence the name ex Battle Deck.
Each ex Battle Deck contains a pre-built 60-card deck, and further details about the deck will be updated on this page once they become available. Product images will also be added to this article in due course.
Update: Official product description + images added.
MSRP is $9.99 USD for each deck.
