Feb. 16, 2022 — Starting Feb. 22, 2022, Pokémon fans in Canada will be able to preview Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) Live during the limited beta for iOS and Android, as well as Windows PC and macOS devices, before the online game launches around the world. Limited-beta participants will have the opportunity to play the upcoming Sword & Shield—Brilliant Stars in Pokémon TCG Live prior to the expansion’s global release.

Developed and published by The Pokémon Company International, Pokémon TCG Live is a new online game that allows players to enjoy the Pokémon Trading Card Game in an updated digital format. Similar to the tabletop version of the Pokémon TCG that fans have loved for over 25 years, Pokémon TCG Live features fan-favorite activities like building decks and battling with friends, as well as gameplay modes and daily quests for all types of players regardless of their skill level. 

Canadian players can access the limited beta on mobile devices via the Apple App Store and Google Play, and on Windows PC and macOS devices by downloading the app from Pokemon.ca/TCGL, when the testing period goes live on February 22, 2022. They will also be able to enjoy cross-platform play during the limited beta. Furthermore, Pokémon TCG Online players will have the option of playing Pokémon TCG Live during the testing period without losing access to the Pokémon TCG Online app.

Pokémon TCG Live will be globally released in the future as a free-to-play game with no in-app purchases, and will receive ongoing content and feature updates post-launch. For more information, please visit Pokemon.com/TCGL.
