'''Neo Destiny''' (Japanese: '''闇、そして光へ...''' ''Darkness, and to Light...'') is an Expansion of the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]]. It is the fourth and final expansion in the "Neo" series of cards, and much like the fourth expansion in the previous generation's main series, features {{TCG|Dark Pokémon|corrupted Pokémon}}. This time, however, a {{TCG|Light Pokémon|counterpart}} appears.
 
==Set sizeInformation==
*Both the English and Japanese Expansion contain 113 cards.{{incomplete|section}}
 
==Sequence=Trivia===
*11thThis Englishwas Expansionthe first (and only) set to feature {{TCG|Light Pokémon}}. Light Pokémon are similar to the {{TCG|Dark Pokémon}} introduced earlier in {{TCG|Team Rocket}}.
*10thThe Japanesename Expansion"Destiny" is used as the set title in reference to the Light and Dark Pokémon, in that a Pokémon's destiny is determined by how they are treated by their {{pkmn|Trainer}}.
*This set completes the transition of all the {{TCG|Unown}} to card form, with the exception of Unown R. Like {{TCG ID|Wizards Promo|Unown J|38}}, Unown R was a Promotional card in Japan, but was not translated by Wizards. An English Unown R did not appear until {{TCG|EX Unseen Forces}}.
==Release*{{TCG|Shining date==Pokémon}} once again featured in this set - 8 as opposed to 2 in {{TCG|Neo Revelation}}. Unlike their predecessors, these cards got a unique foil treatment; the backgrounds remained non-holographic while the Pokémon themselves were given a metallic look.
*9thEach Marchof 2001the -shining JapanesePokémon Expansionreleased in this set is of a different {{TCG|type}}; the only one not represented is {{TCG|Water}}, which is represented by the two shining Pokémon released in the previous set.
*28thNeo FebruaryDestiny 2002was -also the last set that [[Wizards of the Coast]] made that featured the {{TCG|1st Edition}} symbol, and the last English-language set to feature it overall. The use of the symbol was eliminated due to the fact that sometimes the 1st Edition run would be released after the unlimited run (thus defeating the Expansionpurpose).
*No {{ct|Darkness}} Pokémon are released as {{TCG|Dark Pokémon}}. Pokémon that appear as dual-type {{type|Dark}} Pokémon in the games are given the TCG type corresponding to their other type as Dark Pokémon, with the examples of {{TCG ID|Neo Destiny|Dark Houndoom|7}}, a {{ct|Fire}}, and {{TCG ID|Neo Destiny|Dark Tyranitar|11}}, which is {{ct|Fighting}}, while single-type Dark Pokémon (at the time there was only {{p|Umbreon}}) do not feature as Dark Pokémon. This "rule" was later completely reversed in the EX series, where ''most'' Dark Pokémon are dual-types with their normal type.
*Much like the {{TCG|Team Rocket}} expansion, only the {{type|Fire}} and {{type|Water}} starter Pokémon of the generation became {{TCG|Dark Pokémon}}. Unlike what was the case with Ivysaur and Venusaur, which later received Dark variants as promo cards, there has never been a Dark Bayleef or Dark Meganium.
