The first step is to have a Pokemon Trainer Club account. This account is used in every Pokemon-related game. In the game, players can get started by customizing their avatars and scanning their code cards. The game has a variety of new cards and promises to add more cards in the future. The Pokemon Trading Card Game Live has an in-game currency that can be used to purchase cards and accessories. The game is completely free to download on all platforms.

What happened to the Pokemon Trading Card Game?

The original app was removed and replaced with the new Live version, which is currently in the beta stage. The release of the Pokemon Trading Card Game Live has taken longer than expected but it promises to be worth the wait. Back in August, Pokemon conducted a limited beta where it gave access to the game to a small number of players. These players provided The Pokemon Company with feedback that is now being used.

Some of the improvements implemented based on players’ feedback are daily quests that are available to all players as well as improved matchmaking and better Battle Pass content. In terms of cards, the progress through the Battle Pass makes it so players can obtain the strongest cards early on. Players still have to invest time in the game, but they won’t have to sacrifice resources to craft strong cards.
