    you are partially correct... the coming set will be releasing PokemonEX (as opposed to the Pokemon-ex you are referring to). While the two game mechanics are similar in name, and how they will played, they are not the same. (Also, the last Pokemon-ex to be released was years ago, so it would be worth noting if they were returning anyway)

    Ah, I see. My mistake. Still, it sounds like it's the same thing aside from one being in caps and the other being lowercase letters. I don't see the point of it.

    Well, it's because of how EX and ex are seen in Japan. One is pronounced "ee-ecks", while the other is pronounced as "ecks". Mechanically, the new EX are very similar to the old ex cards, but this time they're a bit more powerful to match the fact that the Pokemon are more powerful overall in the card game now as opposed to the first time ex was around.

    That sounds like the purpose of Lv. X cards then. :/

    Lv. X cards worked a bit differently from either of these, though. Lv. X needed to "Level Up" from a Pokemon of the same name, while both ex and EX actually act as functional replacements for their non ex/EX counterparts, being able to evolve from the previous stage or being played as a basic outright if it was a basic.
