With Pokemon X and Y for 3DS drawing ever closer, fans of the Pokémon Trading Card Game will be able to experience the excitement of Generation VI in Pokémon TCG: XY. Pokémon TCG: XY – Kalos Starter Set gives players and collectors a choice of three 60-card decks, each one featuring a brand-new Pokémon: Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie. A deluxe version of the set will also include one Pokémon TCG: Black & White Series booster pack.
The Kalos Starter Set will also debut Fairy-type Pokémon and Basic Fairy Energy into the TCG world. Fairy, the eleventh Pokémon type in the Pokémon TCG, is the first new type since Dragon was added in 2012. There are still many questions about the type, such as which Pokémon will be Fairy type and how matchups will be affected. In order to attack with Fairy-types, players will need to use Basic Fairy Energy, the ninth Energy type in the Pokémon TCG.
Pokémon TCG: XY – Kalos Starter Set is set to release on November 8th 2013. Following this, an expansion, featuring 10-card booster packs, will release in the UK on February 5th 2014. Fans can expect powerful new Pokémon, Trainer cards, and more in the XY additions. Each Kalos Starter Set deck and booster pack will include a code card that unlocks virtual cards for the Pokémon TCG Online. For more information, visit the official site and Facebook page. The new era of “Gotta Catch ’Em All” is here.
