The latest expansion to Pokémon The Trading Card Game is out now, with Pokémon TCG: XY – Primal Clash introducing new booster packs and theme decks.
Alongside the booster packs, theme decks Earth’s Pulse and Ocean’s Core introduce more than 160 new cards to collect and play – better get a new binder ready to hold them all in! I enjoyed playing the new expansion during a press event held in London, thought I did lose. I think I’m going to need to put a bit more practice in.
(My time with Pokémon The Trading Card Game: XY – Primal Clash.)
Some of the key features of the new expansion include:
- 31 Trainer cards with four secret rare cards, four full-art rare Ultra cards and two Special Energy cards.
- Ancient Traits make their first appearance and give certain advantages in battle, similar to Abilities. These appear on 10% to 20% of Pokémon in XY – Primal Clash.
- 12 new Pokémon-EX cards include Sharpedo-EX, Trevenant-EX, Wailord-EX, and Camerupt-EX, alongside two new Mega Evolution Pokémon: Mega Aggron-EX and Mega Gardevoir-EX.
