Press Release - Pokémon Volcanion and Magearna make their Steam Seige Trading Card Game debut Pokémon Trading Card Game

The Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) is a collectible and competitive trading card game. In the competitive Pokémon TCG, each player constructs a deck of 60 cards and uses it to battle against other players in fast-paced, strategy-oriented play. Since the debut of the Pokémon TCG in 1996, more than 21.5 billion cards have been shipped to 74 countries around the world.

Pokémon TCG: XY Steam Siege

Pokémon TCG: XY Steam Siege is the latest expansion to the Pokémon Trading Card Game franchise, featuring the powerful BREAK Evolution mechanic, giving evolved Pokémon even more power during battle! When Shiny Mega Gardevoir-EX and a host of greedy forces lay siege to the mighty Gear Palace, the Mythical Steam Pokémon Volcanion must wield the dual powers of fire and water to stop them! As the battle rages, Xerneas BREAK and Yveltal BREAK face off in this exciting new expansion. Booster packs and two theme decks—Gears of Fire and Ring of Lightning—will be available in stores on August 3, 2016, introducing more than 115 new cards to collect and play.

Key Features of the Pokémon TCG: XY—Steam Siege expansion

● Xerneas BREAK and Yveltal BREAK debut— The popular Legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal appear as Pokémon BREAK, giving players added strength in battle.

● Seven new Pokémon BREAK— Five additional Pokémon BREAK join Xerneas BREAK and Yveltal BREAK. These new cards, featuring landscape orientation, a unique foil pattern, and “gold-plated” art rendering, include Yanmega BREAK, Talonflame BREAK, Pyroar BREAK, Clawitzer BREAK, and Hydreigon BREAK. These cards give the evolved Pokémon more power, adding an HP boost and an extra attack or Ability to the Pokémon’s existing attacks (similar to the LV. X mechanic from the Diamond & Pearl Series).

● Volcanion and Magearna make their TCG debut— For the first time, the Mythical Pokémon Volcanion and Magearna make an appearance in the Pokémon TCG, and do so in a very big way. The expansion features Volcanion as both a regular card and a dual-type Pokémon-EX, while Magearna-EX makes its impactful debut.

● Dual-type Pokémon return— For the first time since the Pokémon TCG: HeartGold & SoulSilver Series, dual-type Pokémon make an appearance in XY—Steam Siege. Dual-type Pokémon give more options to players in deck building, and the new expansion includes three dual-type Pokémon -EX, including two Mega Evolution Pokémon, to add to your deck.

● More Mega Evolution Pokémon and Pokémon-EX— Mega Steelix-EX makes its Pokémon TCG debut, and a new Shiny Mega Gardevoir-EX is also featured in the new expansion. These incredibly powerful cards are joined by four more new Pokémon-EX: Steelix-EX, Magearna-EX, Gardevoir-EX, and Volcanion-EX.

● Booster packs—Packs of 10 additional cards selected from the expansion.

● Two new theme decks—These 60-card preconstructed decks are designed to introduce players to the Pokémon TCG by enabling them to play right away.

XY—Steam Siege theme decks and booster packs include an in-pack code card that unlocks virtual cards from the XY—Steam Siege expansion for play in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online at http://www.pokemon.com/uk/pokemon-tcg/play-online/ . The Pokémon TCG Online is also available for iPad via the App Store and Android tablets via Google Play.

Pokémon Fans Can Now Hone Their Trading Card Game Strategies on Android Tablet

London, 11th May, 2016. Android tablet owners can now enjoy the fun of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Players can compete against friends and opponents from around the world, learning from the in-game tutorial, building decks from their digital card collection, entering online tournaments, and much more!

The digital experience begins by downloading the app at no cost from the Pokémon page on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pokemon.pokemontcg. Players can then progress from more casual play—competing against 12 computer-controlled opponents—to the full, player-versus-player challenge of the physical Pokémon Trading Card Game. Not only that, but they can also compete using every recent expansion of the Pokémon TCG, from HeartGold & SoulSilver to the most recent release, XY—Fates Collide.

All new Pokémon TCG Online players receive four free digital decks so they can get started right away. They can then go on to earn additional cards through both player-versus-computer and player-versus-player battles. Fans who purchase physical theme decks, booster packs and other Pokémon TCG products will receive a code card that unlocks digital cards for their Pokémon TCG Online game. These digital cards can then be included in decks, used to enhance individual collections, or even traded with other players online.

The Pokémon TCG Online, also available as a downloadable game client for PC and Mac® and as an app for iPad and iPad mini devices, allows fans with an Internet connection to play the game whenever they like, wherever Wi-Fi access is available or by using the device’s data plan. The Android app requires an operating system of Android 4.0 or later. The game is available in 12 languages, and this broad accessibility is enhanced by the fact that players using the Android version can battle against others regardless of their chosen platform.
