The Burning Shadows expansion will bring north of 140 cards, including brand-new Pokemon-GX and full-art Supporter cards. There are also two new theme decks in the mix. The decks will have 60 cards each. The two decks will come preconstructed. The purpose of these new decks is to introduce players to the Pokemon TCG by letting them play straight from the get-go.

After the expansion rolls out there will be "even more brand new Pokemon" to play with. "Many of the exotic and tropical Pokemon that Trainers have come to love in the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon video games will join the Pokemon Trading Card Game, including Necrozma, Marshadow, and more".
