Pokémon TCG: ex Battle Decks - Melmetal ex / Houndoom ex Coming

Published on 7 December 2023 at 17:24

Metal vs Fire!

ex Battle Decks featuring Melmetal ex or Houndoom ex will be available for release on February 23, 2024.


These two ex cards originate from the Japanese Scarlet & Violet ex Start Deck and are direct reprints from Obsidian Flames, there is no new artwork for these two cards.


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.


MSRP is $9.99 USD for each deck.


Update 31-01-2024: The French version of the Pokémon TCG: ex Battle Decks - Melmetal ex / Houndoom ex is showing new alternative artwork promos of Melmetal ex & Houndoom ex. The English version uses reprinted art from Obsidian Flames. We think TPCi used placeholder images for the English version. The same happened before with the V Heroes Tin from 2022.
