Team Plasma's Powered Half Deck

Update: Full images of the new Meloetta cards have been revealed, showing the unknown Energy Cost on the Fighting Meloetta.
The official Japanese card database has announced various upcoming promotional cards for the Trading Card Game. Among these are both Meloetta's Formes, the Aria Forme and the Pirouette Forme, as well as a reprint of a currently Japanese only Pikachu. Also reveled was a prototype image of the Team Plasma's Powered Half Deck, featuring a new Klinklang card belonging to Plasma.

Both of the new Meloetta cards will be released at participating Japanese McDonald's during the weekend of July 28-29, 2012. They will be given to those who buy Happy Meals. Translations of the cards are presented below.

In addition to the Happy Meal promotion, a new Pikachu promotional reprint will be included in the "Pokémon Card Game BW National Illustrated Encyclopedia", a new workbook being released July 26, 2012.

Team Plasma's Powered Half Deck also received new details. The Half Deck will contain the Klinklang family, which will be presented under a new game mechanic. As can be seen from the image of the Half Deck, new text reading "Plasma" has been added under the HP. The card will still be named "Klinklang", but it can be assumed that new cards will affect "Plasma's Pokémon" differently than regular Pokémon.
