What are all TCG references made in Pokemon Adventures?

    Exactly as the title says. I know of some refernces such as Sird and the Kadabra Imposter Oak but I'm interested in knowing any other references.

    Just off the top of my head.

    Super Rising Thunder, the move Gold's Pichu used to defeat the Mask of Ice is a reference to the Rocket's Raikou card, which had an attack named "Rising Thunder".

    Two of the machines Carr uses in chapters 277 and 278 are based on the Pow! Hand Extension and Swoop! Teleporter cards, respectively.

    In chapter 107, we actually see someone play the TCG at the Goldenrod Game Corner.

    The ancient star language that Misty's Starmie wrote to send the message about the Elite Four getting the Badges and when it translated Suicune's words is based on the Ancient Mew card from the second Pokemon movie.

    shoz999 No! That's impossible!

    During Blue the female protagonist's first appearance, Blue scams Red by giving him a lot of fake items. A couple of them resemble TCG item cards, one of which Blue mentions is a Plus Power item.

    Plus Power is the Japanese name of X-Attack. That was just a mistranslation.

    Does anyone know more characters from TCG who (or their appearance) is referenced in Pokémon special?
    I can only think of Sird and Roseanne.

    Roseanne isn't from the TCG, just her design. She was an unnamed assistant in DP that got a name in the TCG, which they used in Platinum.

    The card is simply called Plus Power.

    I think all those are just made-up items. Although I do feel like I've seen that headband somewhere before...

    Those images come from Pokemon Adventure RGB story arc, a Gen 1 story. Just look at Gen 1 support cards.

    Oh yeah, and I believe most of the PC storage holders have their appearance influenced from their trainer card, for example Cassius.
