The Pokémon Company International has revealed Pokémon TCG Live, a new free-to-play app that will let you enjoy the Pokémon Trading Card Game in an “updated digital format.”
Whether playing on smartphones, tablets, PCs or Macs, the experience has been designed to be easy for beginners to learn how to play the game, while offering new challenges for existing players so that they can improve and test their skills.
You can continue to build decks and battle other Trainers from around the world, tailoring your experience with customisable avatars and Pokémon TCG accessories, participating in daily quests and more. After it has launched, the game will continue to be updated with new content and features.
“As we look back on 25 wonderful years of Pokémon, we are once again reminded of how the Pokémon Trading Card Game has always been a strong pillar of the franchise and beloved by young and veteran Trainers alike,” enthuses Barry Sams, vice president of the Pokémon TCG at The Pokémon Company International.
“Pokémon TCG Live will go hand in hand with the tabletop version that fans know and love, and welcomes a new era of digital play where Trainers around the world can play together regardless of their preferred platform.”
Pokémon TCG Live is coming soon to supported iOS and Android devices, as well as PCs and Macs through the official Pokémon website. Those hoping to preview the game before it releases worldwide will be able to participate in the mobile soft launch in Canada and the global open beta for PCs and Macs later this year.
