Pokemon Card Game Japan revealed several new shiny cards from their upcoming Sv4a ‘Shiny Treasure ex’ set and also released several new cards as well including Great Tusk ex and Iron Treads ex with Ancient and Future marks respectively. So far, all of the Paldean starters' evolution lines already have their Shiny artwork revealed and also Charizard ex from ‘Ruler of the Black Flame’. This set will be released on December 1, 2023, with a price tag of 550 yen/booster pack where you will get 10 cards inside.
Here is the detail of the newly revealed cards:

Your opponent chooses 1 of their Pokémon’s attacks. Use that attack as this attack.
What do you guys think of these cards? I think Iron Treads ex can be a unique tank deck by using its attack which can reduce damage. On the other hand, Great Tusk ex is a bit weird in comparison because of its ability. I really hope we get to see more cards revealed that benefit from that. We also get a new Kilowattrel which is a great card to have in the United Wings deck because you can now deal damage to the bench and it also costs one Colorless Energy which is very cheap. We also get to see more shiny cards being revealed and oh boy, we may get to see all of the Kanto starters getting their Shiny artwork!
