The Pokemon Company International (formerly named Pokémon USA) is an American company that handles publishing rights to the Pokémon franchise outside of Asia.
Pokemon was released in Japan on February 27th, 1996 for Game Boy handheld console systems. It became very popular in Japan, leading to releases around the world between 1998-2002
Originally released as a video game only, it spawned due to its huge success a trading card game and various similar games. The card game Pokemon TCG is one of them.
The cards feature a wide variety of battle-ready Pokémon in various stages of evolution.
Pokemon cards come in a variety of different stages of evolution. The most basic forms are the basic Pokemon, which have 60 HP and two attacks (20 damage) but no special abilities. Other forms include Pokemon-ex and Pokémon-gx, which can be played on top of your active or benched Pokemon respectively. These have higher HP (100 or 110), stronger attacks that do 30 damage instead of 20 damage, and some special abilities like [Ability: EX].
Pokemon cards also feature a wide variety of types: grass type, water type, fire type etc. Each type has its own weaknesses and resistances; for example water attacks do x2 damage against fire types but half as much against grass types ([Damage Modifier]). A single card can be either a part of one element or another—so while Pikachu is classified as an electric pokemon it's also classified as a mouse pokemon because Pikachu is a mouse!
You can collect and trade them with your friends as well as use them in battles where you pit your Pokémon's abilities against those of other players.
You can also use the cards in online battles or single player games, which are great ways to practice and prepare for real-life competitions.
From its debut until 2007, the Pokemon TCG was all about the duel between two players and their Pokemon decks, arranged into two types of cards - Basic and Evolutionary.
Let's take a look at the two types of cards:
Basic Pokemon - These are the most common type of cards, and represent your Pokemon in their basic form. They're easy to find and use, but have limited abilities and attacks. Evolutionary Pokemon - These are rarer than Basic Pokemon, but can evolve into more powerful forms with stronger attacks and abilities. You'll find them in booster packs or by trading with other players who have them.
A good way to get started is by picking up some packs that contain both Basic and Evolutionary cards you want to play with (you can always trade away any extra Basic or Evolutionary cards you don't need). Once you've got them all sorted out into separate piles according to type (Basic vs. Evolutionary), start building your deck!
There are 60 cards in Basic and Evolution Packs, each representing one or more different kinds of Pokemon that you can use in battle.
The Pokemon Trading Card Game is a strategy game where players battle one another with the aid of collectible cards. The cards represent various kinds of Pokemon, each with its own attack points, health points and sometimes special abilities that can be used in battle in order to defeat your opponent's Pokemon and win the match. A player wins when they have defeated their opponent's last remaining trainer card.
If you're new to the TCG, we recommend starting out by buying one or two starter decks — they'll give you everything you need to get started and help build up some basic knowledge of how gameplay works without spoiling anything too major about how deep things can get later on! Once you've got a feel for it all and want more challenges than what comes with those starters alone (or if your friends aren't interested), then consider getting into collecting Booster Packs or even Theme Decks from The Pokemon Company International website!
The game itself consists of a deck of 60 basic cards (one for each Pokemon), which you can either get by purchasing complete decks online or building up yourself. In addition to these, there are also other cards that can be used with the basic set and are called "Energy." These Energy Cards have special effects or benefits in different ways and help you win against your opponents.
Each player draws seven cards from their own deck before play begins; if any player has more than seven cards at any time during play, they must discard until they have only seven left.
Before playing each game, each player draws seven cards from their own deck. If any player has more than seven cards at any time during the game, they must discard until they have only seven left. A player may choose to discard as many or few cards as desired (including all of them) when this happens; this rule is not limited to just one card per turn.
The winner is the first player to take all six prize cards from their opponent's deck (or both players simultaneously if they run out before either player takes all six). The winner is the player who has taken the most prize cards.
