Team Rocket Info

Prepare for trouble! And make it double! It's the third expansion to come out of Japan!

So really... what is Team Rocket? Here are the facts:

Set Size: The set was originally 66 cards big in Japan. WotC did the Holo/Non-Holo deal again, which brought the set up to 82 cards. There was also a super secret "Dark Raichu" card released in TR, which brings the set to 83 cards, however the "official" set size is still 82.

Release Date: April 24th, 2000 (WotC always releases a set on Mondays). Toys R' Us got a super special deal, they released Team Rocket two days earlier than normal.

One rumor (which was started on this site) said that TR was going to be released on January 8th... [more info]

Other Goodies: WotC's first American made card was released in Team Rocket. And surprize!, it's Dark Raichu. Although it was English first, it wasn't totally 100% American made (like almost every product made these days). The art was drawn by Mitsuhiro Arita, a Pokémon TCG staff artist. But the upside to that is that the picture was made especially for the card, and was not of one that was just floating around. Coolness, none the less!

As for the Pokémon in the set, they will be labled as "Dark" Pokémon, not the stupid sounding "Bad" or the offensive "Evil". Besides, Pokémon aren't evil by nature, their trainers just make them do evil things. (^_^)

Symbol: The symbol for Team Rocket is an R thing:
