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

The first set in the latest Pokémon TCG block, Steam Siege, will be hitting store shelves on August 3rd. This set includes new EX cards such as Shiny Mega Gardevoir-EX, while new BREAK Pokémon include both Xerneas BREAK and Yveltal BREAK. Volcanion and Magearna make their debut in this set.

Steam Siege also includes Dual Type Pokémon, something that hasn’t been seen since the HeartGold & SoulSilver series.

CORRECTION: This article was originally titled “Pokémon TCG: XY Steam Siege Launches August 5th”, as the original press released included that date. Since then I’ve received a correction that the release date would be August 3rd. The article has been edited to reflect that correction.

20th_Anniversary_Mythical_Pokemon_Collection_ManaphyPokémon’s 20th anniversary celebrations continue, now with the release of the Mythical Pokémon Collection: Manaphy box.

The box includes a special Manaphy promo card and a pin of the Mythical Pokémon. It’s a limited time collection, and  also contains two special Pokémon TCG: Generations booster packs.

If you saw my digital unboxing of the Darkrai box, you know what to expect from the Manaphy on.

I’m a big fan of the Mythical Pokémon Collections. It’s always nice to get promo cards and a pin for a good price. The extra Generations pack are a huge plus.

These are on store shelves now, and are priced at $15.

Spring 2016 Pokemon Tins Unboxing

Captured from my Twitch channel, here’s an unboxing of the 2016 Spring Pokemon tins. The tins: Mewtwo EX, Shiny Gyrados EX, and Machamp EX, are available in stores now. Each one contains an EX card and 4 booster packs. I actually snagged some pretty good cards here!

EDIT: It seems the audio is off-sync with the YouTube video. I’m working on getting that fixed. You can still view the broadcast version here.

20th Mosaic Pokemon TCGNearly 13,000 Pokémon TCG cards went into a record-breaking mosaic created by British artist Quentin Devine. The thing is enormous, measuring 10 meters tall and 7 meters wide. You can tell a lot of Electric-type energy went into it, a lot more than the 3 needed of Pikachu’s 2nd attack.

The mosaic was created as part of the continuing 20th anniversary celebration for Pokémon.
