Update #2 (Monday, 1:00 AM) – The commercial has been posted on Pokemon’s official YouTube channel. With clearer images, we’ve updated the translations for Rotom (OMG “BOLTERGEIST”) and Beheeyem. | Update (10:30 PM) – Added images of Infernape, Monferno, Rotom, and Golbat below (and partial translations of the latter three).

A new commercial for Plasma Gale just aired in Japan, revealing that Rotom, Beheeyem, Amoonguss, Scrafty, Druddigon, Infernape, and their evolutionary relatives will be in the set along with a new Stadium card called Plasma Frigate. We should have clearer screenshots of the commercial tomorrow, so be sure to check back. For now, translations of what we can read are below thanks to Rogan!

Golbat and Monferno are not Plasma Pokemon, nor is Cubchoo from the other day. Thus, it seems that only final evolutions (such as Crobat and Klinklang) or fully evolved Pokemon (such as Giratina and Articuno-EX) will be Plasma Pokemon in the set.
