Japanese “Battle Academy” Revealed for March Featuring Eight Pokemon ex!

As we posted months ago, Japan is getting a new “Battle Academy” product on March 8th!

It will include four 60-card decks featuring Pikachu ex and Houndstone ex, Sprigatito ex and Armarouge ex, Greninja ex and Darkrai ex, and Lucario ex and Melmetal ex.

The decks feature brand new cards we haven’t seen before, except Sprigatito ex, which will release in our English Paldea Aventures Chest on March 8th.

The product will come in two versions: one for 1,360 yen that includes the four decks and basic accessories, and a larger boxed version for 3,290 yen that comes with additional accessories.

Thanks goes to JustInBasil for the translations!

Can't wait for these to hurt the odds of good pulls in a future pack for us.
What do you mean by "good" pulls?? The artwork for these EXs is 10/10, playability is 0/10, scalpability is 1/10.
So if you are collecting just for the art, it's a good pull :)
