Plasma Freeze

The Spring English Pokemon TCG set has been announced to be called Plasma Freeze. This set is based on the Japanese half sets, Spiral Force and Thunder Knuckle. The featured Pokemon from these sets were Deoxys EX and Thundurus EX.

Other Pokemon to be featured in this set will be Eevee and it’s evolutions that take advantage of the new Plasma mechanic introduced in Plasma Storm. Other notable EX Pokemon to be included in this set: Heatran EX, Latios EX, Latias EX, and Tornadus EX. There will also be another batch of Team Plasma Pokemon to be included in this set. This set will also introduce more ACE Spec cards along with the return of Super Energy Retrieval which hasn’t be printed since Neo Genesis.

The artwork for Tornadus EX and Thundurus EX are based on their Therian Form. The release of these two cards will mean that the Therian Forms of Kami Trio have been used in the TCG.

The name of this set could be based on the Team Plasma plot used in the Black and White 2. Also, several of the artwork used in this set featured Pokemon in frozen environments.

Plasma Freeze will be released on May 8, 2013.

Plasma Storm



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.

TCG SET NEW



It has been announced that the next English TCG set will be Boundaries Crossed. This set will include the Japanese sets, Cold Flare and Freeze Bolt which featured Black Kyurem and White Kyurem due to the release of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2.

The Pokemon to be feature in this set includes: Celebi-EX, Cresselia-EX, Keldeo, Keldeo-EX, Landorus-EX, White Kyurem, and Black Kyurem. It is to be noted that Celebi, Cressilia, Keldeo, and the alternative versions of Kyurem will be making their debut in the Black and White TCG series. The art for Landorus will feature him in his Therian Forme from Pokemon Black 2 and White 2. This set will also introduce the Ace Spec Trainer cards. These Item cards have a powerful effect but only one copy of the card can be in a deck.

It is to be noted that this will be the first set since Next Destinies to not include “EX” in the name. Instead, the set name is referencing to Kyurem because he is known as the Boundary Pokemon and his involvement in the upcoming games.

Boundaries Crossed is set to be release on November 7th. It will be almost a month after the release of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2.
