The first major update to the free-to-play iPad edition of Pokemon Trading Card Game Online features the XY—Phantom Forces expansion, which can be unlocked by redeeming trainer tokens or code cards.
Trainer tokens can be redeemed in the shop to unlock the expansion’s theme decks and five-card booster packs.
Alternatively, code cards found in physical XY—Phantom Forces theme decks and booster packs can be redeemed in the shop to unlock their digital counterparts. Code cards found in physical XY Trainer Kit—Bisharp and Wigglytuff boxes can also be redeemed to unlock their corresponding decks in the iPad game.
The first major update to Pokemon TCG Online also adds support for Expanded format decks. Such decks may contain only cards from the Black & White expansion onward, Black Star Promos BW01 and higher, and cards from older expansions that have been reprinted in an Expanded-legal expansion.
The new version of Pokemon TCG Online also includes the following improvements:
- Improved messaging after a user acquires his or her first theme deck.
- Various fixes to card bugs and game bugs.
- Auto-login option added to the login screen.
- Added messaging for when the game is launched on an iPad that does not meet the game’s minimum system requirements.
Pokemon TCG Online is available on the App Store for free. It’s compatible with third-generation iPad, fourth-generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2, and iPad mini 3.
