The set will introduce the first Tera Pokemon ex of unusual types, including Charizard ex (Darkness), Tyranitar ex (Lightning), Eiscue ex, and Vespiquen ex. These “type-shifted” Tera Pokemon ex will use the same Energy as their usual types, but will have a different Weakness to correspond with their shifted types. For example, Charizard ex will be a Darkness card with Fire attack costs and a Grass Weakness (Darkness types are weak to Grass to represent Bug).
The set will also feature a Tera Dragonite ex (Dragon), Tera Greedent ex (Colorless), Revavroom ex, Melmetal ex, and Toedscruel ex. Like in the video games, many Tera Pokemon are still one of their original types.

- 12 illustration rare Pokemon
- Six special illustration rare Pokemon and Supporter cards
