Hello everyone.

The Pokémon TCG Live game client will be updated tomorrow. Please see below for the list of changes:

Found Issue: We've discovered an issue in the build going live today. When a player selects "Inspect Board" during a text-based selection or decision prompts and then tries to return and make a selection, the game soft locks. Please be aware that this issue currently only affects players on the game's mobile version.


  • Added support for the Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO expansion releasing on 06/30/2022.


  • The following cards have been updated so they correctly prevent damage from attacks but do not prevent any additional effects of those attacks:

Metapod (SUM #2)

Alolan Sandshrew (GRI #19)

Mewtwo-GX (SMP #196)

  • Pyukumuku (FST #077) is no longer temporarily banned from play. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
  • After the opponent takes a mulligan, the player is prompted to choose how many cards to draw. If the timer runs out, that number will now be selected at random.
  • Damage counters placed by Abilities and attacks are now counted in the "Damage Done" match results.
  • Pyukumuku (FST #077): The Pitch a Pyukumuku Ability now correctly shows the card returning to the deck on the opponent's side.
  • When using certain effects that allow infinite movement of damage counters between Pokémon in play, that movement no longer causes a superfluous damage counter to appear.
  • Certain attacks have been updated to correctly count the amount of Energy provided, rather than the number of Energy cards attached when calculating damage.
  • Decks containing certain basic Energy cards from the XY, XY—Evolutions, or Generations expansions can now be correctly imported.


  • Drapion (UNM #134): The Cross Poison attack now displays the correct Energy requirements in Big Card View.
  • Prompt text for certain card effects that search for a Pokémon's Evolution chain has been updated to name the specific cards that need to be chosen.
  • Energy Recycle System (CES #128): Text prompt for the card effect choices now displays correctly.
  • Amoonguss (UNM #14): If the Bursting Spores Ability activates multiple times, the player will correctly be prompted for subsequent instances, even if they decline the first prompt.

Deck Manager

  • In Standard play, Expanded decks are no longer erroneously marked as invalid for containing less than 60 cards.
  • Older prints of Standard-legal cards are now included in search results with the Standard filter.
  • The Item-Tool and Tool-Item sorting type have been updated to group cards correctly.
  • The last selected deck now stays selected after returning to the Deck Manager.
  • In the desktop client, direct interactions now correctly function with scroll bars while editing a deck in the Deck Manager.
  • Icons for Expanded deck creation now display correctly when creating a deck.


  • In the desktop client, the Inspect Board button is now disabled during the animation sequence for taking Prize cards.
  • Emote animations now have a cooldown and can no longer be activated multiple times in succession.
  • The Burned status visual effect has been updated so the border no longer overlaps with other status icons on the card.
  • Icons denoting attached Energy no longer clip into drawn cards.
  • The "Done" button is now enabled during certain optional effects and, if pressed, will end the action if the player does not use the effect.


  • The Terms of Service and Privacy Notice pages on the first-time launch review page now display correctly.
  • The design has been updated for the language select button during startup.


  • In the mobile client, banner visuals when transitioning between Standard and Expanded Casual matchmaking have been updated.


  • In the mobile client, the avatar customization menu view now correctly scales for certain resolutions.


  • The Professor Juniper Premium Tournament Collection deck accessories now display the proper item name.
  • A scroll bar has been added to the Collected summary window.
  • The green glow visual effect during item collection now consistently displays.


  • In the desktop client, the Prize card selection window in the tutorial has been updated for better Prize card visibility.
