Team Plasma will finally enter the Pokemon Trading Card Game. The next Japanese trading card set will be called Plasma Gale which will be the seventh set within the Black and White series.
This set will feature Pokemon used by Team Plasma such as Skarmory, Klinklang, Crobat, and Bouffalant. Klinklang was used by N in the Pokemon Black and White while Ghetsis used a Bouffalant. The set looks to be based on both Pokemon Black and White and Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 video games. An alternative art N will be a Supporter found in this set along with Team Plasma’s Pokeball. Also featured in this set is Lugia EX which will join the ranks of the many powerful EX cards that have already been released.
It should be noted that none of Team Plasma Pokemon will be renamed similar to previous villainous team based set (eg: Palkia G, Team Magma’s Groudon). Instead, Pokemon are going have a “Plasma” as a subtitle under the HP and the Plasma emblem as a watermark. This will mean that a Klinklang from this set will still be consider the same as Klinklang copies from the other sets when it comes to deck building. Rules state that a player can only have four copies of a Pokemon, Item or Special Energy card in their deck.
This set is scheduled to be release in Japan on September 14.
