Pokemon officially revealed Persian and Rhydon evolution line as part of the upcoming SV2a ‘Pokemon Card 151’ set. Some sources have also leaked Vulpix and Lapras that will come in this set too. This set will be released in Japan on June 16, 2023, with 165 cards in the set before Art Rare, Super Art Rare, and so on, and will cost 290 yen per booster pack but with 7 cards inside.
With the release of this set, Pokémon debuted several new Pokémon ex, including Mew ex, Alakazam ex, and the original Kanto starters, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. Additionally, as each card number corresponds to the number on their Pokedex, we are likely to see every Generation 1 Pokémon here.

What do you guys think of these cards? I think Rhydon has great damage potential for a single-prize Pokemon. However, its attack cost and its requirement are too hard to achieve. On the other hand, Persian can be a great Pokemon for control decks because of its ability.
