Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Plasma Storm Now Available
Players can redeem code cards from specially marked Black & White—Plasma Storm theme decks and booster packs unlock cards from this expansion in the Pokémon TCG Online. Black & White—Plasma Storm contains over 130 cards, including eight powerful Pokémon-EX, three game-changing ACE SPEC cards, and all-new Team Plasma cards, easily identified by the infamous Team Plasma shield and distinctive blue border.
Booster Credit Changes
The existing booster credit system is being phased out over the course of the next 18 months in favor of a more streamlined code redemption experience. The release of Black & White—Plasma Storm brings the first step in this process.
Code cards found in booster packs from expansions prior to Black & White—Plasma Storm will continue to grant booster credits, which can be redeemed for the HeartGold & Soul Silver through Black & White—Boundaries Crossed expansions.
Code cards found in Black & White—Plasma Storm booster packs will unlock a digital booster pack from the same expansion, rather than a booster credit. Booster credits cannot be redeemed for Black & White—Plasma Storm in the Shop. This redemption method will apply to all Pokémon TCG expansions released after Black & White—Plasma Storm.

Card Sleeves Now Available
Players may now select card sleeves while saving a custom deck. The selected sleeve replaces the standard Pokémon TCG card back and is displayed to both players. Two sleeves are currently available to all players. New sleeve designs will be introduced through a variety of distribution methods in later game updates.
Patch notes for each game update now appear in the Patcher.
