The new Pokemon 151 TCG expansion is upon us, and we've got the full card list and the rarest cards to show you. If you're someone who grew up with the original 151 Pokemon, this set will be absolutely perfect for you.

It features all of those 151 classic creatures ordered by their Pokedex number. It also has a ton of awesome art rare cards for you to search for.

This is a special set, so it's only available in certain products like Elite Trainer Boxes or the new Booster Bundles. Be sure to check out our full card list for this Pokemon TCG expansion below!

The Pokemon 151 card list is stacked with fan-favourite Pokemon from the first generation. If you're a fan of the original starters or the mythical Mew, this set is for you.

Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise all get special illustration rares - the rarest card type in the Scarlet & Violet series of sets. These cards also come with matching cards for their unevolved forms.

Other special illustration rares include Zapdos, Alakazam, Erika's Invitation and Giovanni's Charisma.

There's also a golden Mew hyper rare card to chase. The Mew special illustration rare from the Japanese version of this set has been placed in the Ultra Premium Collection product as a promo card.

You can also look for special galaxy holofoil energy cards at the back of any pack. These cards use the original galaxy holofoil pattern from the classic Pokemon sets.
