The Pokémon Company International has unveiled Pokémon TCG Live, a new app that allows Trainers to enjoy the Pokémon Trading Card Game in an updated digital format.
Releasing as a free-to-play game, Pokémon TCG Live also marks the first time that the Pokémon TCG will be playable on smartphones, in addition to tablets, PCs and Macs.
The reveal comes as The Pokémon Company International continues its year-long celebration of the brand’s 25th anniversary by engaging fans with new Pokémon experiences and products.
“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,” said Barry Sams, vp 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.”
Players of Pokémon TCG Live will be able to enjoy TCG activities including building decks and battling other Trainers around the world. They will also be able to tailor their experience with customisable avatars and accessories, participate in daily quests and more.
In addition, Pokémon TCG Live will continue to be updated with new content and features following launch.
