EX Dragon Frontiers is the fifteenth Pokémon Trading Card Game set released by Pokémon USA. It is based on an unknown set of islands far away, inhabited primarily by Dragon Pokémon (thus making it likely that these islands are the Dragon Frontiers). It marks the final appearance of Delta Species Pokémon, after they debuted in EX Delta Species and returned in EX Holon Phantoms and EX Crystal Guardians, as well as a brief appearance in EX Legend Maker.

Types of Pokémon


Pokémon-ex are incredibly powerful. Their HP are usually far above that of their regular form, and they are much stronger. On occasions, some Pokémon-ex, such as Altaria ex, have two Resistances, and some have no Weakness (such as Dragonite ex). Some, however, such as Typhlosion ex, have two Weaknesses, putting them at a disadvantage. Another disadvantage of Pokémon-ex is that when Knocked Out, the player who has done so must take two Prize cards instead of the usual one.


Pokémon-* tend to be fairly similar to Pokémon-ex in that their HP are sometimes elevated and they can sometimes be stronger than their regular counterparts. However, this is not as regular in Pokémon-* as it is in Pokémon-ex. Pokémon-* usually appear in sets in groups of three; for example, Mudkip, Treecko and Torchic and Regirock, Regice and Registeel. Only one Pokémon-* may be put in a deck, regardless of whether it is a 30-card deck or a 60-card deck.

Delta Species Pokémon

Delta Species Pokémon are Pokémon that have had their genes modified, causing a disturbance in their regular pattern - as well as their natural types. Delta Species Pokémon behave in a very similar way to normal Pokémon: you can evolve a Delta Species Pokémon from a normal Pokémon and vice versa, and they can use the vast majority of Trainer and Energy cards that can be used by normal Pokémon. Delta Species Pokémon also have some Trainer and Energy cards that can be used exclusively with them, such as Holon Researcher.

New Attack Effects

EX Dragon Frontiers introduces two unique new effects to the game, which are present only in this set. The two effects are called Imprison and Shock-wave, and can be used only by Gardevoir ex and Tyranitar ex respectively.

Imprison and Shock-wave use markers similar to Burn and Poison, but are not classed as Special Conditions. The markers can be removed from a Pokémon when evolving or devolving it, or taking it out of play altogether. However, retreating the Pokémon does not remove the marker. A Pokémon can have both markers on it at any one time.

One Pokémon in EX Dragon Frontiers, Tropius, is the only card that currently allows you to remove these markers from your Pokémon. When you play the card from your hand to your bench, its Tropical Heal Poké-Power allows you to remove all Special Conditions and Markers from all of your Pokémon.


EX-15 099 Tyranitar ex

Tyranitar ex

The Imprison Poké-Power can be used by Gardevoir ex. It allows you to put one Imprison marker on one of your opponent's Pokémon each turn (except if Gardevoir ex is affected by a Special Condition). Any Pokémon with an Imprison marker on it can't use any Poké-Powers it has, and any Poké-Bodies it has are deactivated. This renders some Pokémon, such as Snorlax, useless.


The Shock-wave effect can be used by Tyranitar ex. It involves putting a Shock-wave marker on any of your opponent's Pokémon and then knocking it out. Tyranitar ex's Electromark attack allows you to put a Shock-wave marker on one of your opponent's Pokémon, and its Shock-wave attack lets you Knock Out that Pokémon. Because these are effects of attacks used by Tyranitar ex, they can be nulled if the opponent uses an attack that prevents all effects of the attacks during your next turn, or if one of your Pokémon in play has a Poké-Power or Poké-Body that prevents effects of attacks from your opponent's Pokémon.
