  • Comments Off on Pokémon TCG: XY—Evolutions Showcase is 90’s Cringe-worthy Awesome. Radical.

I recently received three great new Pokemon TCG items in the mail. The first, the Pikachu Battle Tin, contained a special, foil Pikachu-EX card along with some booster packs.

The second two items where Mythical Pokemon Collections, Victini and Keldeo. Each of these includes a special, foil card of their namesake, a collectable pin, and two Pokemon Generations booster packs.

Check out the video above to see me unboxing the contents of each in the Pokemon TCG Online client. I manage to pull a couple great cards out of the boosters, but the real star of this show is the cards for which each item is named for. The Pokemon Company continues to put out these collectors items that are actually worth purchasing, have a great value, and satisfy the itch to catch’em all.

pokcmon-tcg-xy-evolutions-website_homepage2Pokémon: XY—Evolutions was released today and The Pokémon Company is celebrating with a 90’s themed website.

For those who missed our previous coverage, Pokémon: XY—Evolutions celebrates 20 years of Pokémon by revisiting the original Pokémon cards. All the cards from the original Pokémon set have been made modern with higher HP and stronger attacks. That’s all that’s been updated, though, as the art and card layouts are exactly like they were in 1997! Of course, there are some new cards, like EX and BREAK cards, tossed into the mix.

Ready to be warped back to the age of dial-up and DHTML animations? Head on over to to see the “new” Pokémon TCG site in all its glory.

The new set will contain over 100 new cards, and includes cards such as Mega Venusaur-EX, Mega Charizard-EX, and Mega Blastoise-EX, Dragonite-EX, Ninetales BREAK, Machamp BREAK, and Mega Slowbro-EX.

While Pokémon Sun & Moon will be out in November for the Nintendo 3DS, Pokémon TCG players will have to wait until early 2017 to get their hands on the new set that features the all-new Pokémon.

It may be well worth the wait, as it was announced today that the new set will introduce Pokémon-GX cards. Pokémon-GX will have new attack and devastating attacks that can alter the game. The trick is that a player can’t use more than one GX attack in a game. Not one GX attack per Pokémon. One per game.

Each Pokémon-GX has a devastating GX attack that can instantly reverse a player’s disadvantage or create an early-game advantage. A player can’t use more than one GX attack in a game, so deciding which GX attack to use and when poses a strategic challenge. Other than that GX Pokémon are similar to EX Pokémon. They have high HP, powerful attacks, and earn the player that defeats them two prize cards.

The Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala, who appear on the covers of the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon  games, will be featured in the Sun & Moon expansion as Pokémon-GX.


The Sol Burst-GX attack allows a player to attach up to 5 Energy cards from their deck to their Pokémon in any way they like, making it a powerful attack that’s useful for super Energy acceleration.


The Lunar Fall-GX attack lets a player immediately Knock Out any of their opponent’s Basic Pokémon
