As a Pokemon trainer, recruit pokemon and provide them with energy to battle against other pokemon. Be the first to obtain 6 prizes or knock out all your opponent's pokemon to win the Poke-Battle. Behind Magic, Pokemon is the second most popular trading card game and has enjoyed a continuous stream of expansions since its release. While initially targeting a more accessible game than Magic it has developed into a much deeper game with expanded card types and special pokemon. Pokemon has also done well at integrating its digital version with the physical with production often offering online benefits.
