The eighth English TCG expansion has been announced to be called Plasma Storm. The set will based off the Japanese set, Plasma Gale, and introduce Team Plasma to the TCG.
This set will feature cards center around Team Plasma that will be used to set up the “Plasma Engine”. Though, unlike previous sets based off villainous teams, none of the Pokemon will include the word ‘Plasma’ in their name. Instead, they will have the Team Plasma emblem watermarked on the face of the card. No cards have been announced to be included in the English set but it will most likely include: Lugia EX, Cobalion-EX, Colress Machine and the Plasma Energy. There is also speculation that the missing cards from the Freeze Bolt/Cold Flare Japanese set that were originally thought to be included in Boundaries Crossed will be in Plasma Storm.
Plasma Storm is set to be released on February 6th, 2013.
