Black & White — Plasma Storm (Japanese: Plasma Gale) is the name given to the eighth main expansion of cards from the English Black & White Series of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The Japanese release is the seventh of the BW era.

This expansion was released on February 6, 2013. The Japanese counterpart Plasma Gale, was the seventh Japanese BW era expansion and was released September 14, 2012.

Plasma Storm is the second largest set of the Black & White Series. The Plasma Storm expansion features the debut of Team Plasma in the Pokémon TCG. All non-Pokémon-EX Team Plasma Pokémon are illustrated by 5ban Graphics. Additionally, certain Team Plasma Supporter cards can only interact with Team Plasma cards, such as Team Plasma Grunt and Shadow Triad.

This set totals at 138 cards, 3 of which are Secret cards. The Secret cards are Charizard reprinted from Boundaries Crossed (Freeze Bolt in Japan), Blastoise reprinted from Boundaries Crossed (Cold Flare in Japan), and Random Receiver reprinted from Dark Explorers (the Reshiram-EX and Zekrom-EX Battle Strength Decks in Japan).

Plasma Storm features 8 Pokémon-EX, the most out of any Black & White Series expansion. Four of these Pokémon-EX come from the Japanese expansion Plasma Gale: Victini-EX, Articuno-EX, Cobalion-EX, and Lugia-EX, causing these four to be the only Pokémon-EX to have Full Art prints. The other four (Moltres-EX, Zapdos-EX, Black Kyurem-EX, and White Kyurem-EX) originate from the Black Kyurem-EX and White Kyurem-EX Battle Strength Deck. Colress also received a Full Art print originating from Plasma Gale.

The Secret Charizard card was printed with a Fighting Energy symbol within its second attack instead of the correct Fire Energy. Additionally, Whismur, Loudred, and Exploud were erroneously placed before Lugia-EX in the setlist. Furthermore, the Full Art print of Colress was at first printed without all the special etching that it was supposed to (the original print lacked many of the wavy lines featured throughout the card). This mistake was corrected sometime during the initial print run.

The Prerelease promo is Crobat from the BW Black Star Promos. The N alternate print was later released in English as a BW Black Star Promo.

Clouds gather, Energy crackles, and when you play the Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Plasma Storm expansion, a new force will be felt as the tempestuous Team Plasma makes its debut! All must make ready for a new battlefield, featuring electrifying Team Plasma Pokémon, game-changing Trainer cards, and Team Plasma Pokémon-EX such as Articuno-EX, Zapdos-EX, and Lugia-EX. And, as all-new, powerful ACE SPEC cards blast the balance of power and even more amazing Pokémon-EX race into battle, a question must be asked: Trainers, are you ready? Prepare for the Plasma Storm!
