Hello everyone.

The Pokémon TCG Live game client will be updated on September 19, 2023. The game will be offline starting at 8 AM PDT(15:00 PM UTC) and is estimated to be down for 8 hours. Please see below for the list of changes:


  • Added support for the Pokémon TCG: Scarlet & Violet—151 expansion.
  • Updated animations for several foil patterns to improve their overall appearance on foil cards throughout the game.
  • Added support for visuals indicating a forced coin-flip result.


  • Fixed an issue where Eevee (SUM #101) Energy Evolution Ability and Skiploom (EVS #003) Solar Evolution Ability effects were not optional when triggered.
  • Collapsed Stadium (BRS #137): Fixed an issue where the opponent is incorrectly prompted to discard from their Bench first.
  • Deoxys (BSP #SM164): Fixed an issue where the Power Suction Ability could not be used to move energy to another Deoxys card.
  • Counter Energy (CIN #100): Fixed an issue where this card can be incorrectly targeted by effects that target specific Energy card types when the player has more Prize cards than their opponent.


  • Fixed an issue where the player's hand may disappear when interacting with a playable card from the discard pile after the opponent's turn ends.
  • Fixed an issue in matches where the client can become unresponsive if an attack is chosen right as the action timer runs out.
  • Fixed an issue where certain Tool cards with retaliation effects did not show their effects on the Status Effect screen under the correct conditions.
  • Fixed an issue where the selection arrow occasionally does not show up for cards available to promote to the Active spot. 


  • Fixed an issue where an empty collection pop-up window would occasionally appear after a match.
  • Fixed an issue on the mobile client where the app would restart if the player navigated away from the app.


  • Fixed an issue in the shop where the Sun & Moon expansions do not show when setting the filter to view all expansions available.
