Get the Legendary Pokémon, Deoxy!
Deoxy originally appeared in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. As a DNA Pokemon, it has the ability to change forms and focus on attack, defense, or speed. Now, Deoxy can be brought to your Pokemon Black and White 2 game fully levelled up. You can also find the powerful Deoxy-EX card in the upcoming Plasma Freeze expansion set for the Pokemon Trading Card Game.

More Than Meets the Eye
Originally, in order to change Deoxy's form, you needed to trade it between games. The game that Deoxy was on decided its form. However, Pokémon Black and White 2 trainers can now bring Deoxys to Nacrene City to have it shift between Normal Forme, Attack Forme, Defense Forme, and Speed Forme. Deoxy will be available to download starting May 8th. To get Deoxy, you just need to go to the Mystery Gift option in the starting menu and select Receive Gift and Get Via Nintendo WFC. Make sure you do not have more than 11 Wondercards (you can always delete Wondercards from in game to free up more space.)
Team Plasma's Power
The next set for the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Plasma Freeze, will also be arriving on May 8th. The set will include more than 110 new cards, including Thunderus-EX, Tornadus-EX, and of course, Deoxy-EX. This set includes lots of trainers and supporters for Team Plasma, creating very strong combinations. For example, Deoxy-EX's Pokemon Ability increases the damage done by Team Plasma pokémon by 10. If you have four Deoxy-EXs down on your bench, your Team Plasma pokémon will do an extra 40 damage every turn! There is also the Team Plasma Badge tool card that you can attach onto any pokémon, making it a honorary Team Plasma pokémon.
