EX Team Rocket Returns introduced Pokemon, a new type of Pokemon with a different colouration than its usual for its species. The rarity symbol, made of gold foil, had part of Pokemon outside the artwork window border. Team Rocket could rise again wherever darkness lurks… Team Rocket's reappearance in the Pokemon TCG of Dark Pokemon has seen Team Rocket roar onto the scene with its remote machines and fierce Pokemon!
Dark Pokemon are Pokemon that have Darkness-type counterparts to standard Pokemon. Dark Pokemon used to have weaker attacks and lower HP than their regular counterparts. However, the Dark Pokemon of EX Team Rocket Returns were the strongest ever! Many Dark Pokemon have the same HP as their non-Dark counterparts and have special attacks or Poke Powers. Many Dark Pokemon in EX Team Rocket Returns have dual-type Pokemon, making them more versatile. Dark Pokemon are more likely to work well together with other Dark Pokemon.
Even though Dark Pokemon are mighty, they aren't quite strong enough to be used by Team Rocket members. Rocket's Pokemon are dangerous! They've also made some of the most powerful Pokemon into Pokemon. Rocket's Pokemon may be more powerful than their predecessors, but most of them are now Darkness-type Pokemon. Rocket's Wobbuffet (47-99) is a great card to use in battle. It can survive for a few turns due to its 70 HP. It can also disable the attacks of your opponent with Amnesia. Dark Aid is the best feature. Dark Aid allows you to reuse Pokemon Tool and Rocket's Secret Machine cards. You can either place one of your discard pile cards into your hand or three from your deck into your deck.
Are you tired of being knocked out by pesky Electrodes? Are you tired of having Special Conditions ruin all your plans? You'll like Rocket's Articuno ex (96/109). Rocket's Articuno Ex (96/109) is protected by Darkness Energy, and its Darkness Veil Poke-Power prevents attacks except for damage. You can attach a Water Energy Card from your discard pile to its Solid Freeze attack, and its Ice Wing attack is a base of 50 damage. However, it can significantly damage if Darkness Energy cards are attached to Rocket's Articuno.
Although some of the Trainer cards in EX Team Rocket Returns may seem strange, they can be instrumental and help you achieve great success. Rocket's Poke Ball (89/109) is the simplest of all-new Trainer cards. Rocket's Poke Ball allows you to search your deck and find a Pokemon with Dark or Rocket's as its name, then put it in your hand. It's easy to fill up your Bench and evolve your Pokemon into Dark- or Rocket-colored Pokemon. You can use multiple Rocket's Poke Balls in one turn, as it is not a supporter card.
EX Team Rocket Returns has introduced “Rocket's Secret Machine” trainer cards. These cards can be potent if appropriately used. Rocket's Secret Machine cards can be used to your advantage for Pokemon, such as Dark Slowking (9/109), Rocket's Wobbuffet (4/7/109), and Rocket's Meowth (46/109). Rocket's Secret Machine Cards are not Supporter cards, so that you can use multiple cards per turn.
Pokemon Retriever (84/109) is one of the most versatile Rocket's Secret Machine cards. You can put one Basic Pokemon card or an Evolution card into your deck, and it can be used to reuse Knocked Out or discarded Pokemon. If your Dark Electrode was knocked out but still has a Voltorb, could the Pokemon Retriever get your Dark Electrode back? You can now evolve your Voltorb.
Do you not hate it when you have to fight a Basic Pokemon you don't like? What if you have a Basic Pokemon and an Evolution card for another Pokemon? Swoop! Teleporter (12/109) allows you to exchange a Basic Pokemon with another Basic Pokemon. All damage counters, special conditions, and other effects on the old Basic Pokemon are preserved in the new Basic Pokemon. Swoop! You can ensure you have an Active Pokemon in your first turn by having Teleporter in your hand. Swoop can be used during battle.
Teleporter allows you to evolve Pokemon quickly. Let SLet'suppose you have a Chansey sitting on the Bench with three Energy Cards attached, and your Raichu got Knocked Out last time. It would be best if you had another Raichu but didn't have any Pikachu. Swoop could be used! Teleporter can be used to exchange Dunsparce for a Pikachu. Next, use Pokemon Retriever and get the Raichu out of the discard pile. Finally, you can evolve Raichu from Pikachu in the same turn as Pikachu since Pikachu was in play on the previous turn. You now have a Raichu that has three Energy cards attached.
