The Ancient Koraidon ex Starter Deck & Build Set (Japanese: スターターデッキ&ビルドセット「古代のコライドンex」) and the Future Miraidon ex Starter Deck & Build Set (Japanese: スターターデッキ&ビルドセット「未来のミライドンex」) are a pair of Japanese-exclusive Pokémon Trading Card Game products that were released alongside the dual Wild Force and Cyber Judge expansions on January 26, 2024.

Information

Coinciding with the start of a new regulation block were two boxes focusing on the Ancient and Future mechanics that debuted in the Ancient Roar and Future Flash expansions. Each box contains a fixed selection of 228 cards: a 60-card deck plus 168 cards to help build and enhance it. The decks center around Legendary Paradox Pokémon Koraidon and Miraidon, which are included as new Dragon-type Pokémon ex cards and respectively support the Ancient and Future mechanics. Of the 168 deck building cards, there are 12 Pokémon cards, 38 Trainer cards, and 6 Special Energy cards. Many of these are the same between the two boxes, and offer competitively viable cards sourced from both the Sword & Shield Era and the Scarlet & Violet Era. Of note is the inclusion of an ACE SPEC Master Ball card, which along with the ACE SPEC cards in the Wild Force and Cyber Judge expansions, mark the return of the mechanic after nearly 11 years. The remaining 112 cards consist of multiples of Basic Energy cards.

Each Starter Deck & Build Set also includes a sheet of damage counters and status markers, a unique coin, a VSTAR marker, a playmat, a player's guide, and a card with deck modification tips.

All cards that debuted in these boxes were localized and released in the Temporal Forces expansion.
