A rarely mentioned topic on our site is the TCG-side of Pokémon, but I think it’s more than worth talking about occasionally. Pokémon recently announced details about the English release of the X&Y TCG expansion which will be coming on February 5, 2014. Fairy-type has been added to the cards, as well as a new Mega Pokémon mechanic.
Personally, I’ve always been more of a “collector” type when it comes to the Pokémon TCG. My three sisters never had any interest in battling when I was younger so even if I had made a competitive deck there wouldn’t have been any way for me to test it out. Luckily, children growing up in this online era have the Pokémon TCG Online game in case they have no interested siblings or nearby events. I don’t have much time for it, but I do really enjoy the TCGO game so if you haven’t checked it out I recommend that you do!
Looking forward to reading the comments about what you’re doing TCG-wise right now 🙂
ps- After I wake up (almost 11PM in Tokyo right now… I’m sick and tired) I plan to post an article about… POKEMON Z. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
