The set continues to feature Mega Evolution as powerful Pokémon-EX and centers around the Shadow Pokémon Gengar. It was released on September 13, 2014 in Japan and on November 5, 2014 in English. Phantom Forces contains over 110 cards, pulling together Phantom Gate's 88+ cards, the Japanese Hyper Metal Chain Deck, and various promotional cards.
The expansion features 7 Pokémon-EX and two Mega Pokémon-EX. It brings Dialga-EX and Aegislash-EX from the accompanying Japanese Hyper Metal Chain Deck and releases them with the 4 Pokémon-EX from the Japanese Phantom Gate: Gengar-EX, Manectric-EX, Malamar-EX, and Florges-EX. The expansion features Team Flare cards, Supporter cardAZ, and a new mechanic named Spirit Link that allows Mega Pokémon to evolve without ending the player's turn.
