Pokémon TCG: Team Rocket (Japanese: ロケット団 Rocket Gang) is the name given to the fifth main expansion of cards of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The set continues to feature Generation I Pokémon in the card game.

Description

Team Rocket's on the Loose!

The number of criminal incidents involving Pokémon has been on the rise. Some suggest it may have something to do with the rash of Pokémon kidnappings that have been occurring recently.

Pokémon breeders believe that to properly raise and evolve a Pokémon, you have to treat it with love and attention. But what happens if a Pokémon isn't treated properly? Will it evolve diffently? What's the secret behind this new threat to Pokémon and their trainers?

Information

Team Rocket is the name given to the fifth main expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. In Japan, it was released as Rocket Gang. It features Generation I Pokémon, themed around the exploits of Team Rocket, and introduces Dark Pokémon. The English expansion was released on April 24, 2000, while the Japanese expansion was released on November 21, 1997. The English release was stalled for six months since the release of the Fossil expansion, due to Wizards of the Coast having to await for approval from Nintendo to print Dark Raichu.

Dark Pokémon were prefixed with "Dark" instead of the original translated prefix "Bad" or the potentially sensitive prefix, Evil as in the Japanese release. This expansion was the first released by Wizards of the Coast to include a Secret card (a Rarity for a card number to exceed the maximum number of the expansion) and was the first to be created by Wizards: Dark Raichu. Dark Raichu was later released in Japan in the Crossing the Ruins... expansion. This expansion was also the first Japanese expansion to include a Super Rare rarity (signified by a white star); Here Comes Team Rocket!. Finally, this expansion is also the first to feature a Holofoil Trainer card and Energy cards. Several cards were misspelled with the plural form of Pokémon names by adding an unneeded s to the end of species names in Attacks or Pokédex entries.
