The promotional artwork

Pokémon-EX (Japanese: ポケモンEX Pokémon EX) are a variant of Pokémon in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. They were first introduced in the Next Destinies expansion (the Psycho Drive and Hail Blizzard expansions in Japan). Pokémon-EX have a stylized EX graphic on the card name.

All Pokémon-EX are Basic Pokémon, with a majority of them being legendary Pokémon. In fact, all Pokémon-EX cards were legendary Pokémon until the Legendary Treasures expansion (the EX Battle Boost expansion in Japan). Most Pokémon-EX cards also have a Full Art print. Similar to the Pokémon-ex released during the EX Series, this variant of Pokémon has significantly higher HP compared to the majority of regular Pokémon in the Black & White Series. When a Pokémon-EX is defeated, the opponent takes two Prize cards instead of one.

The artwork on the Pokémon-EX cards mirrors the style introduced on Pokémon LV.X: having the Pokémon break the borders of the illustration. They also include special characteristics influenced by the card type and the Pokémon depicted. For example, Groudon-EX features crumbling rock and Kyurem-EX features a frozen card border.

M Pokémon-EX

M Pokémon-EX were introduced in XY expansion and introduce the Mega Evolution mechanic featured in Pokémon X and Y to the TCG. Each are identified by a stylized Mega graphic on the card name. M Pokémon-EX can only be played by Mega Evolving from the previous Stage Pokémon-EX, and doing so ends a players turn immediately. Other than this, M Pokémon-EX share the same rules and design as regular Pokémon-EX, with the addition of boosted HP and more powerful attacks. M Pokémon-EX also feature the name of the attack on the card as part of the artwork, which is displayed in English on Japanese and Korean cards and in Japanese on cards released in other regions and on Japanese UR variants.
