Legendary Treasures is the eleventh and final Black & White Series expansion, and was released on November 6th, 2013. Legendary Treasures feature over 130 cards, based on and contain cards released in the Japanese equivalent EX Battle Boost, released July 13, 2013, in addition to the cards released in the Japanese Shiny Collection, released February 1, 2013, and the Mewtwo vs Genesect Deck Kit, released the same day as EX Battle Boost. The English release features a subset, named the Radiant Collection, that contains the 25 cards from the Japanese Shiny Collection, now printed in English. Radiant Collection cards, similar to its Shiny Collection equivalent, have a special coating and foil patterns; they have their own numbering (all numbers prefixed by RC) and rarity scheme.
The Legendary Treasures expansion, for the first time since Neo Revelation, and only the second time in Pokémon Trading Card Game history, is a set that does not have any associated Theme Decks. Instead, there are Theme Decks based on the Pokémon X and Y starter Pokémon, released the same day as the expansion and starting off the XY Series of the card game. These Theme Decks were released November 8th, the same day as the XY Beginning Sets in Japan.
This expansion, and the Japanese equivalents; EX Battle Boost and Shiny Collection, feature reprints with alternate artwork from throughout the entirety of the Black & White Series. The two Japanese releases are the first to be described as Concept Packs instead of being considered main expansions. The main difference between a Concept Pack and a main expansion is that Concept Pack cards don't necessarily feature Rarities, though they both still featured Pokémon-EX and secret cards.
In total, Legendary Treasures features 13 Pokémon-EX and 7 Full Art cards. Ten of these Pokémon-EX are reprints from previous expansions, while the other three, Chandelure-EX, Excadrill-EX, and Meloetta-EX, are brand new. Chandelure-EX and Excadrill-EX, although normally Evolved Pokémon, are featured as Basic Pokémon.
The promotional artwork for this expansion switches from being illustrated by Shin Nagasawa back to being illustrated by 5ban Graphics. The English expansion totals at 140 cards, including a subset of 25 from Radiant Collection.
The Prerelease Promo for this expansion is Tornadus-EX.
