Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR! (Japanese: ポケモンカードGB2 GR団参上! Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!) (abbreviated Pokémon Card GB2) is the Japan-only sequel to Template:Card GB. The game story revolves around a new villainous team, Team Great Rocket, and contains nearly all of the cards from Base Set, Jungle, Fossil, and Team Rocket. A promotional Lugia card was included with the game.

The game adds many new features not present in the original, such as new cards, the ability to play as a female character, a much larger in-game world, and a more developed story (rather than just collect cards and defeat the Grand Masters, the player must defeat Team Great Rocket).


In Pokémon Card GB2, Team Great Rocket, led by King Biruritchi, have kidnapped many of the Club Masters and attempted to steal the Legendary Cards. The player, assuming the role of Mark or Mint, must rescue the Club Masters and defeat Team Great Rocket at their headquarters on GR Island.

New features

  • Players may select either Mark, the protagonist of the original Pokémon Trading Card Game, or Mint, a new female player character.
  • Opponent Trainers now have varying sprites: when they are losing, they appear sad, when they are winning, they appear happy.
  • Coins replace Master Medals as tokens of achievement. These coins can also be used in place of the standard game coin in duels.
  • Most of the clubs, such as the Grass Club, receive a minor interior redesign.
  • In addition to all of the areas found in TCG Island in the first game, a second island, GR Island, is explorable as well.


Available cards

Along with the first four TCG sets and a number of special promotional cards, a large number of cards from the Japanese-exclusive Vending Machine cards and Intro Pack are available. Only one card from Gym Heroes made it into the game, which was The Rocket's Trap.

Expansion Sets

The following were the expansion sets available in the game.

Cards not available in Pokémon Card GB2

Like the first version, there are a number of actual cards that did not make into the game, assuming that the listed promotional cards are Owner's Pokémon.

There are three additional cards in the game that were not from the first generation: Marill, Togepi, and Lugia.


Main article: Coin (TCG)#In the games

Coins have superseded Club Medals from the first game as items which denote any significant achievement. Coins can be used to change the coin interface used in the card game, or may be used for access to certain areas of the map. There are 24 coins in total, separated into 3 sets: GB1 Island coins, GB2 Island coins and special coins.
