Plasma Freeze is the name given to the ninth main expansion of the Black & White Series of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. In Japan, it was released as the Spiral Force and Thunder Knuckle dual expansions that make up the eighth expansion block in the Pokémon Card Game BW Era. It is based on Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, featuring Generation V Pokémon and Team Plasma. The English expansion was released on May 8, 2013, while the Japanese expansions were released on December 14, 2012.
Most Pokémon have shards of ice in their artwork, this was a reference to the event in Pokémon Black and White Versions 2, when Team Plasma used the Plasma Frigate and the power of Kyurem to freeze Opelucid City and the surrounding area.
