Pokémon Trading Card Game Live
The Pokémon Company International has announced that the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live, which is currently available in beta on iOS, Android, Windows PC and macOS devices, will receive its official launch worldwide on June 8th. The upcoming Scarlet & Violet - Paldea Evolved expansion for the Pokémon Trading Card Game will be available in Pokémon TCG Live from June 8th at 10am (PDT), one day before the physical release of the Paldea Evolved expansion.

All players who log in to the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live between now and June 6th at 10am (PDT) will receive a set of deck customization accessories to thank them for their participation in the Global Beta. Images for each of these bonuses can be found at the bottom of this article.

Pokémon Trading Card Game Live is a free-to-play app that will serve as a replacement to the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, allowing players to enjoy the Pokémon Trading Card Game in an updated digital format. The game includes all the basic activities like building and customizing decks and player avatars, as well as gameplay modes and daily quests for all types of players, regardless of their skill level. The app currently features cards from the Sun & Moon Series through to the recently-released Silver Tempest set, with plans to extend back to the XY and Black & White Series in the future.

Players around the world can access the current Pokémon TCG Live beta on mobile devices via the App Store and Google Play, or download it for PC and Mac at this website. The app is currently available in six languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. The beta initially opened to players from Canada on February 22nd, and was later opened to players in Mexico on May 24th. The beta was further extended to players in Australia and New Zealand from July 20th, and to Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden from October 18th.

Active development on the previous Pokémon TCG Online software ceased as of March 1st this year, and will be officially sunsetted from June 5th at 9am (PDT), prior to the Pokémon TCG Live leaving open beta, after which it will no longer be available for download from the App Store, Google Play, or Pokemon.com, and the game's servers will be permanently shut down. Until this date, Pokémon TCG Online code cards prior to the Scarlet & Violet series will still be able to be redeemed in Pokémon TCG Online, and the in-game Versus Ladder reward tracks will continue to receive updates.

Players of the existing Pokémon TCG Online app are able to migrate their account and game data to the new Pokémon TCG Live app, using their Pokémon Trainer Club accounts. Please note however that migrating account and game data is a permanent decision, and will result in Trainers losing access to Pokémon TCG Online. Existing Pokémon TCG Online players can however choose to play Pokémon TCG Live during the beta period without losing access to the Pokémon TCG Online app, simply by not migrating their accounts. Players who initially opt-out of migrating their accounts will be able to change their mind at any time, and perform a migration from the settings menu. More information on what is transferred to Pokémon TCG Live can be found in the official FAQ here.
