Pokémon Prime (TCG)
Pokémon Prime (Japanese: グレートポケモン Great Pokémon) are a type of Pokémon found in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. They first appeared in the HeartGold & SoulSilver expansion. Pokémon Prime differ to other variants of Pokémon in that they have no specific ruling or mechanic affecting their use: they are regularly classified as either Basic Pokémon, Stage 1 Pokémon or Stage 2 Pokémon and retain their regular names. The only difference, in terms of gameplay, is that they are considerably more powerful than their regular counterparts.
Pokémon Prime had Holofoil card border, gold foil name text, spikes on the border of the artwork window, and lacked the Pokédex entry. The artwork featured a close-up of the Pokémon's face.
