Double Crisis, a new mini set due for release in Japanese on January 30 and in English on March 25, will be featuring Team Magma and Team Aqua with various Owner's Pokémon belonging to the two teams. With the release quickly approaching during the end of this month, many details have been surfacing about the 34-card set, which is all explained below.
First up are two Full Art cards revealed via the February CoroCoro magazine, releasing min-January. These Team Magma's Groudon-EX and Team Aqua's Kyogre-EX feature not only the Legendary Pokémon, but the team leaders and other Pokémon featured within the mini set. These two Pokémon-EX feature the Ability Power Saver which was first seen on the original Team Magma's Groudon and Team Aqua's Kyogre featured in the EX Team Magma vs Team Aqua expansion.

As long as the number of Pokémon in play (both yours and your opponent's) that has Team Magma in its name is 4 or less, this Pokémon can't attack.

If your opponent's Active Pokémon already has damage counters on it, this attack does 80 more damage.
The Japanese expansion includes 34 cards, with additional Full Art cards being released as Secret cards above the 034/034 set limit. Each booster pack for the Japanese expansion contains 6 cards instead of the usual 5, and there is a guaranteed Holofoil card in every pack.
The set, when releasing in English on March 25, will only contain 28 cards (this set limit includes the Full Art cards within the 28 cards), pulling cards from the set for various other releases. Only 8 of the 28 cards are Holofoil cards, and the set will be released in packs of 7 cards instead of the usual 10. The packs are included specifically in a product going by the name of Double Crisis Collector's Pin 4-pack, coming in two different designs, containing 4 packs from the mini set, a code card, and a Collector's Pin and Coin featuring either Team Magma or Team Aqua. The product description is listed below.
