Pokémon SP are a variant of Pokémon found in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. They debuted in the Platinum expansion, the first of the Platinum Series. They are the successor to owner's Pokémon.

Pokémon SP (an abbreviated form of Special Pokémon) vary depending on the theme of the expansion in which they appear. All Pokémon SP are Basic Pokémon and have an "SP" logo in the bottom-left corner of the illustration box. Pokémon SP also include a suffix in the name in order to differentiate them from other Pokémon.

For a list of all Pokémon SP by their designated Pokémon Trainer, see the List of Pokémon SP by Trainer article.

Pokémon G

The first variant of SP Pokémon is Pokémon Pokémon G, which was seen in Platinum. Pokémon Pokémon G cards are classified as Galactic's Pokémon (this text replaces the Pokédex data in the illustration bar) and have an icon of their respective Team Galactic owner in the bottom-right corner of the illustration box. All Pokémon Pokémon G also have a "Pokémon G" at the end of their name in order to differentiate them from other Pokémon. Several examples include:

  • Probopass Pokémon G cannot evolve from Nosepass because it is a Basic Pokémon and because its name is not Probopass.
  • Darkrai Pokémon G cannot be leveled-up into Darkrai LV.X, as its name is not Darkrai.
  • Dialga Pokémon G cannot be leveled-up into Dialga LV.X, but it can be levelled-up into Dialga Pokémon G LV.X.
