What is Pokemon: the Trading Card Game?
In the Pokemon Trading Card Game, players build decks around their favorite Pokemon and then play against each other, sending their Pokemon into battle to prove who the best Pokemon Trainer is. Players can begin with theme decks, pre-constructed decks designed to cover the basics of the game. Then, they can augment their card collections with booster packs that provide more cards, letting players develop more diverse decks. With thousands of cards to choose from, the game is never the same twice. The Pokemon Company International releases four sets of cards, called "expansions," each year, so the game continues to evolve and expand for both players and collectors.
In the video games, the player takes on the role of a young Trainer, whose journey involves traveling from town to town catching and training Pokemon, and battling against other Trainers' teams of Pokemon on a quest to become the Pokemon League Champion. An additional goal is to catch and catalog all of the many Pokemon within the game's world. All Pokemon have one or two innate element types that reflect the Pokemon's strengths or weaknesses. For example, Water-type Pokemon have a natural advantage over Fire-type Pokemon, who in turn have an advantage over Grass-type Pokemon, and so on. Despite this battling aspect of the games, the Pokemon games avoid explicit violence; Pokemon never die during the course of the game. Trainers are invited to take part in many peripheral activities when playing, including talent and beauty contests, tournaments, and fishing (for Pokemon, of course!).
