EX Ruby & Sapphire (Japanese: Expansion Pack) is the name given to the first expansion of cards of the EX Series era of the Trading Card Game, introducing new game mechanics and a new card design, which would remain in use for nearly four years.

This is the first expansion to be produced by Nintendo after transferring the Pokémon TCG license from Wizards of the Coast. This was the first expansion to introduce Generation III Pokémon to the TCG from the Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire games. This is also where the expansion and theme deck names originated.

The English prefix "EX" refers to "extra", as in the extra power the newly introduced Pokémon-ex bring to the game. This is the first expansion to feature Pokémon ex.

With the release of this expansion, the Japanese TCG would no longer support the e-Reader peripheral, whereas English expansions would continue to feature e-Reader compatible cards until EX Hidden Legends. The only additional content this provided were the respective cards' Pokédex entries however, with the exception of Trainers, Energy, and Pokémon-ex.

The card layout was once again changed with the release of this expansion. The expansion was translated into Spanish in October 2005, making it the first expansion since Neo Genesis to be released in Spain.
