Team Plasma (TCG)

Team Plasma (Japanese: プラズマ団) is a category of cards in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. They were introduced in the Plasma Storm expansion and are based on Team Plasma from the core series, some owned Pokémon being exclusive to the card game. These are distinguished by a blue Team Plasma label superimposed on the card art below the HP and type and a blue border instead of yellow for cards released outside Japan. Team Plasma's symbol in the appears as a watermark in the text area of the card, but instead is part of the artwork's background for Full Art cards). Non-Full Art Team Plasma Pokémon and Item cards also feature a blue glow around them and blue lightning in the artwork's background. Certain attacks, Abilities, Trainer cards, and Special Energy cards interact specifically with Team Plasma cards.

An example of a Team Plasma Pokémon

The Team Plasma Badge is a Pokémon Tool card that causes whichever Pokémon it is attached to to become a Team Plasma Pokémon. No other type of card has an equivalent Tool.
