The Pokemon Trading Card Game and Pokemon GO are collaborating on an upcoming TCG expansion which will feature cards themed after the mobile game.
Not much information has come out yet, but the package design has been revealed! It looks like packs may contain 6 cards, which is different than the 10 you get in a usual booster pack. We're not sure which Pokemon will be making an appearance in the card game expansion, nor do we know what the rarity distribution will be with the packs being differently sized, but we're certainly interested in hearing more about it.
Update: Not sure what's going on but the 6 cards per pack seems to be an error as a pack with 10 is shown in a short video clip. (Clip below)
The Pokemon GO TCG Expansion should also launch within Pokemon TCG Live as all sets get a physical and digital launch. We're still waiting for the new digital version of the Pokemon Card Game to launch though, which was previously delayed until sometime this year. Pokemon TCG Live will be replacing the soon-to-be-shutdown Pokemon TCG Online game. All progress will be migrated from the original game though, so don't worry about that!
6 cards per pack is the format of the boosters here in Brazil
The pack is also in portuguese
I feel like it is absurdly late to make a pokemon go pack lmao
Yeah, consider also that the pkmn go game itself was not complete when launched... they introduced trading 2 years late! And pvp much later.
A really bad move for niantic and/or nintendo, 'cause it could be an ongoing killer app, nowadays only dedicated fans kept playing it.
Anyway, i've played the very first version of pkmn tcg many years ago... it was the beginning of my experience with cardgames, later it drove me to playing YuGiOh!, Warlord(saga of the storm), VS System, WoWtcg and (after a long hiatus when wowtcg was discontinued) KeyForge (now on hiatus too)
