Pokémon Trading Card Game: XY Expansion Pack Arrives 5th February

Introduces Mega Evolution mechanic and over 140 new cards

The Pokémon Company has announced the upcoming arrival of the Pokémon Trading Card Game: XY expansion, which will be available in stores from 5th February; this is applicable in multiple territories, while a price of $3.99 for 10-card booster packs is confirmed for North America. Unlike the previous Kalos Region booster pack, this will include plenty more cards and new rules to incorporated features such as Mega Evolution.

Below is a useful description from the official website, highlighting how the Mega Evolutions from Pokémon X & Y with be interpreted in Pokémon TCG: XY.

Before playing a Mega Evolution Pokémon to evolve a Pokémon-EX, players must consider the situation carefully—doing so ends their turn immediately, which means they can’t attack that turn! The risky move is worth the reward, however, because Mega Evolution Pokémon exhibit a strength that surpasses that of Pokémon-EX. Hard-hitting attacks and high HP totals make Mega Evolution Pokémon dominant during Pokémon TCG matches.

Features of the Pokémon TCG: XY expansion include:

  • 2 all-new Mega Evolution Pokémon
  • 6 new Pokémon-EX
  • Pokémon TCG Online code cards
  • Over 140 cards in all!

It's surely only a matter of time, like with the 3DS titles, before these cards become an integral part of official competitions. Are you a fan of the Pokémon Trading Card Game, and will you be checking out this expansion?
