An example of a Pokémon ex

Pokémon ex (Japanese: ポケモンex Pokémon ex) are a type of Pokémon found in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. They were first introduced in the Scarlet & Violet expansion. Pokémon ex have a stylized ex graphic on the card name.

In terms of gameplay, Pokémon ex are similar to both the Pokémon-EX from the Black & White and XY Series and the Pokémon-GX from the Sun & Moon Series; they typically have more HP and stronger attacks than regular Pokémon. However, Pokémon ex have a Rule Box that say that whenever a Pokémon ex is Knocked Out, the opponent takes two Prize cards instead of one. Like Pokémon-GX and Pokémon-ex and unlike Pokémon V, Pokémon ex are classified by their usual stage of Evolution.

Pokémon ex may be Terastallized, dubbed Tera Pokémon ex, which have a stylized ex graphic in their name and a box under their name that says that they do not take damage when on the Bench, although this box does not appear to be classified as a Rule Box. Tera Pokémon ex can have Energy types that differ from their usual types. These so-called type-shifted Tera Pokémon ex use the same Energy as their usual type for attacks; however, they have a different Weakness that corresponds with their shifted type.

Aesthetically, the artwork is most comparable to Pokémon-EX and LV.X, with the regular prints having similar layout as normal cards and breaking the borders of the illustration window. However, the rest of the illustration is visible through the rest of the card, which gives the impression of being translucent, similarly to Full Art cards. Following the Scarlet & Violet series increased focus on illustrations, the regular prints' artwork may be 3D or 2D, although the former is the most common. Pokémon ex cards also recieve a Full Art print, which are similar to the Full Art prints of Pokémon-GX and Pokémon V, and may recieve a Special Illustration Rare print, and in some cases a Hyper Rare print. Tera Pokémon ex's illustrations are mostly the same as regular Pokémon ex, but appear to fire crystals in the regular prints. The Full Art prints have white backgrounds with a crystal-like holofoil effect, and have sparkles around the Pokémon.
