'''Dragons Exalted''' is the first set to feature the {{ct|Dragon}} in English, including 2 Dragon-type {{TCG|Pokémon-EX}} cards, {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Rayquaza-EX|85}} and {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Giratina-EX|92}}. In addition to these two Pokémon-EX, four others were released: {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Ho-Oh-EX|22}}, {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Mew-EX|46}}, {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Terrakion-EX|71}}, and {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Registeel-EX|81}}. The set only includes all the cards from the Japanese {{TCG|Dragon Blast}} and {{TCG|Dragon Blade}} expansions, and their two accompanying half decks, the {{TCG|Garchomp Half Deck}} and the {{TCG|Hydreigon Half Deck}}, whose featured cards {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Garchomp|91}} and {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Hydreigon|98}} were later the focus of the English {{TCG|Theme Deck}}s {{TCG|DragonSpeed}} and {{TCG|DragonSnarl}}.
Dragons Exalted includes 128 different cards: 4 of which are {{TCG|Secret card}}s. The Ultra Rare Secret cards are Shiny Pokémon: a reprint of {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Serperior|125}} from {{TCG|Black & White}} ({{TCG|White Collection}} in Japan), a reprint of {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Reuniclus|126}} from {{TCG|Black & White}} ({{TCG|White Collection}} in Japan), a reprint of {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Krookodile|127}} from {{TCG|Dark Explorers}} ({{TCG|Dark Rush}} in Japan), and a card without an English release of the normal print before it, {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Rayquaza|128}}. Rayquaza's normal print was included in the Japanese {{TCG|Dragon Selection}}, which had not been released in English by the time the Shiny print was released in Dragons Exalted.
This set features many Pokémon whose {{TCG|Ability|Abilities}} activate when the come into play to evolve a player's Pokémon, such as {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Roserade|15}}, {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Ninetales|19}}, and {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Aggron|80}}. To further enhance these Abilities, {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Devolution Spray|113}} from {{TCG|Base Set}} was reprinted with the same effect of {{TCG|Neo Discovery}}'s {{TCG ID|Neo Discovery|Hyper Devolution Spray|73}}'s effect. Related to this, {{TCG ID|Dragons Exalted|Golurk|59}} has an attack that can [[Devolution|devolve]] the Defending Pokémon.
