Pokémon Card Game Japan officially revealed Zapdos ex, Vaporeon, Mewtwo, Snorlax and more cards from their upcoming set SV2a ‘‘Pokémon Card 151’ along with Bill’s Transfer and Big Balloon. 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 (Secret Rares rarity is still unconfirmed), 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? Zapdos ex can be an easy pivotal card because of its ability. Its attack can also be a great sniping attack on some small Pokemon. Chansey also has some fun potential by taking an extra Prize card if you manage to flip head while Ditto can be a game-changer card if it can prove to be a very strong addition to some decks.
