Because of the chosen mascots for Stormfront, the set's theme is particularly dark, and is not based on anything in particular unlike its Japanese counterpart. The set's three mascots are {{P|Dusknoir}}, {{P|Gyarados}} and {{P|Tyranitar}}, with Gyarados being featured in the Raging Sea theme deck and Tyranitar in the Dark Rampage theme deck.
The Japanese version of the set, Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky, is based on the eleventh Pokémon Movie, [[Giratina and the Sky's WarriorBouquet: Shaymin]], including such featured Pokémon as {{P|Giratina}}, {{P|Dialga}}, {{P|Shaymin}}, {{P|Magnezone}} and {{P|Regigigas}}. Giratina, Dialga and Shaymin, all of which are prominent figures in the film, have been removed from the English expansion, presumably to feature in a later set.
The set includes only one new game mechanic, although does also include several new and returning features to the TCG. Firstly, Pokémon of [[alternate coloration]] (previously known as Shining Pokémon or Pokémon-star) return to the game, but do not include any special features. There are three of these in the set: {{P|Drifloon}}, {{P|Duskull}} and {{P|Voltorb}}, classified as SH1, SH2 and SH3 respectively. Their only difference to regular cards is that they only have a reverse holofoil effect. The set also introduces Trainer cards with a + at the end of their name. These Trainer cards have different effects depending on whether the player uses one or two of the same card at a time.
