v25 Update: Theme Deck Store, Forum and Discord

Theme Deck Store is now available!

Now you can get theme decks directly from the in-game store using ink. The cost of each deck is automatically calculated by the total amount of ink required to assemble the missing cards on your inventory, minus 30% theme deck discount! If you already have all the cards in your inventory, you can just add the deck to your inventory for free!

New Forum!

We have a new forum for updates and announcements, deck lists, feature suggestions, bug reports and everything about Pokemon TCG and TCG ONE in general! Please feel free to post and discuss anything. The new login system is integrated with the forum so you'll be able to use your existing TCG ONE accounts. You can also communicate with your friends using PM feature.

New Discord Server!

You should join our Discord Server for the latest updates, daily discussion and development topics. There is even a Patreon integration: Our supporters can link their Patreon accounts with Discord to receive a special status on the server! We will integrate the existing in-game chat with Discord later on.

Parade continues!

v23 Update: New login system!

This update features a new centralized login system, which will be the first step for the upcoming website features such as forum and deck garage. It also has persistent sessions so as long as you use the same browser, your session will be remembered automatically. Later on, we will be able to allow developers to integrate apps with TCG ONE accounts.

Your accounts are already transitioned to new system ( in a secure way. On first login, you'll only need to verify your email address and you'll be able to change it also (a lacking feature on old system). The reason for email verification is that we want to make sure you will be able to receive email from us in case you forget your password.

You will now be able to Login with Facebook. This will allow new players to start playing with less number of steps. Existing players can link their Facebook accounts (Go to My Profile -> Link Facebook Account) to use this feature. We'll add Discord login in the future.

Some technical notes for existing players:

  • Old system allowed using the same email address for multiple accounts, the new system will not. So in order to be able to activate your secondary accounts, you'll have to verify them with different email addresses.
  • A change in session system should also be noted that, it's now not possible to use different users in the same browser session, to be able to play games with two accounts with yourself, you'll have to use another browser or a private session (a.k.a. Incognito mode).

Bug fixes:
  • Fixed Lycanrox GX (GRI) attack damage
  • Mallow (GRI) will now work correctly
  • Fixed a rare interaction for Cinnabar City Gym (G2)
  • Fixed GX attack requirement for Lurantis GX (SM)
  • Fixed discarded energies for Arcanine (SM) Firestorm and Pikachu EX (XYP) Mega Thunderbolt

Career Changes

  • New generation: Ruby & Sapphire is now available in Career, along with RS & SS expansions and Worlds 03-04 format!
  • New currency: Ink can be used to assemble any card you don't have and dissolve the ones you don't need in exchange.
  • New currency: Coins can be used to buy packs from in-game store. Earned through quests and 3 win bonuses.
  • 3 Win Bonus: You will gain 40 coins for every 3 wins you get against foes in all modes/formats (carries on between days, maximum 2 bonuses per day, only applies once for a unique foe in a day).
  • Upon logging in, your account and inventory will be upgraded to Career v2. Each card is assigned a current market value calculated by considering previous sales in the market of each card. Your first 4 cards be refunded of their market value minus mean of dissolve and assemble cost of their new class. Your excess cards (over 4) will be refunded of their full market value.

  • FREEBIE cards! Every generation has some important freebie cards and they will be given automatically to players who don't have them. You will get notifications for cards that were credited to your account.

  • Basic class cards (not to be confused with basic type pokemon) are now free to play, including all basic energy cards!
  • V2 packs are generated in a fundamentally different way than the old ones. Each pack always costs 100 coins and contains 10 random (at least 1 Rare Class and 3 Average Class) cards from multiple expansions and usually type-aware. Element packs contain Fire, Grass, Water, Steel and Verdict packs contain Lightning, Psychic, Fighting, Dark typed cards.
