'''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}} emerges...
 
==Set size==
*Both the English and Japanese Expansion contain 113 cards
 
==Sequence==
*11th English Expansion
*10th Japanese Expansion

=Release date=
*9th March 2001 - Japanese Expansion
*28th Feburary 2002 - English Expansion
 
=Trivia=Theme decks==
*This is one of only two sets that contain the same cards in both the English version and Japanese version - the other is [[Base Set ({{TCG)|Base Set]].Dark}}
*This was the first (and only) set to feature [[Light Pokémon ({{TCG)|Light Pokémon]]. Light Pokémon are similar to the [[Dark Pokémon (TCG)|Dark Pokémon]] introduced earlier in [[Team Rocket (TCG)|Team Rocket]].}}
*The name 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 [[Trainer]].
*This set completes the transition of all the [[Unown (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}}.
*[[Shining Pokémon (TCG)|Shining Pokémon]] once again featured in this set - 8 as opposed to 2 in [[Neo Revelation (TCG)|Neo Revelation]]. Unlike their predecessors, these cards got a rather interesting foil treatement; the backgrounds remained non-holographic while the Pokémon themselves were given a metallic look.
*Neo Destiny was also the last set that [[Wizards of the Coast]] made that featured the 1st Edition symbol. 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 purpose), and the secondary market wasn't affected by them any longer.

==Trivia==
*This is one of only two expansions to feature the exact same cards in both English and Japanese editions, when [[Wizards of the Coast]]'s non-holo versions of holo cards are not counted. The other was the {{TCG|Base Set}}.
*This was the first (and only) set to feature {{TCG|Light Pokémon}}. Light Pokémon are similar to the {{TCG|Dark Pokémon}} introduced earlier in {{TCG|Team Rocket}}.
*The name "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 [[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}}.
*{{TCG|Shining Pokémon}} once again featured in this set - 8 as opposed to 2 in {{TCG|Neo Revelation}}. Unlike their predecessors, these cards got a rather interesting foil treatment; the backgrounds remained non-holographic while the Pokémon themselves were given a metallic look.
*Each of the shining Pokémon released 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.
*Neo Destiny was also the last set that [[Wizards of the Coast]] made that featured the 1st Edition symbol. 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 purpose), and the secondary market wasn't affected by them any longer.
