In addition to these cards, it is confirmed that Copycat and Professor Elm’s Training Method will be reprinted in the TCG. However, Elm will have slightly different wording – it can only search for Stage 1 and 2 Pokemon cards, not just “Evolutions.” Perhaps there will be a higher stage of evolution in the future?
These cards in addition to the Pokemon revealed last week seem to confirm that x2 weakness returns to the TCG. For the Diamond and Pearl and Platinum eras, each weakness was customized to add between 10 and 40 damage from super-effective Pokemon.
