Have you heard of the three Pokémon TCG formats? If not, they are Standard, Expanded, and Unlimited. What if I told you that there is a new Pokémon format? Well there is. The new Pokémon format Legacy is going to make the game even better.
This format will include all of the Standard cards, which is XY through BREAKpoint, and the XY Starter Set, the Expanded cards, which are the Black and White base set through Legendary Treasures, and even the currently Unlimited format HeartGold and SoulSilver expansions, and Call of Legends. It will be avaliable in the Pokémon TCG Online, and it will be used for tournaments.
Other Updates to the TCGO
There will also be some other major updates to the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Starting March 16th, there will be a new wheel in versus mode, which gives the winner extra prizes and 1 to 5 extra trainer tokens. The wheel resets every day, so play hard to win all of the prizes before it resets.
Friend Battle Mode will be updated as well. It will let you play games using any and all cards in the Pokémon TCG Online. When this happens, the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online will retire the Unlimited format from the game. Standard and Expanded formats will remain the same, letting you play with your most current cards from the XY and BW series.
Get ready to play the TCGO on March 16, 2016.
