The Pokémon Company has officially announced the GX expansion for the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

The GX cards offer all new powerful attacks unlike anything that’s been released in the past. You can read theé official details about the upcoming cards below.

When Pokémon-GX arrive in the Pokémon Trading Card Game early next year, players will be able to battle with stronger Pokémon that can use tougher attacks than ever before. These GX attacks are so devastating that they can turn around a player’s fortune in an instant, forcing the opponent to develop new tactics on the fly. They also bring interesting strategic decisions, because a player can’t use more than one GX attack in a game!

What Players Need to Know about Pokémon-GX

  • A player can use only one GX attack per game. (That’s one total, not one per Pokémon-GX!)
  • Each Pokémon-GX has a maximum of two attacks in addition to its GX attack.
  • Pokémon-GX have strong attacks and high HP, so they can overwhelm the opponent’s Pokémon without needing to rely on the GX attack.
  • All of this power comes at a price. When your Pokémon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes two Prize cards. Think carefully about how and when to use your Pokémon-GX in battle.

Pokémon-GX launches in early 2017.
