The Pokemon TCG XY Expansion is reportedly filled with lots of cool Pokemon from the Kalos Region including Mega Evolution Pokemon like Blastoise-EX, Fairy-type Pokemon like Yveltal-EX, Aromatisse and Slurpuff. Plus, there are some new powerful cards available from the booster packs and expansion theme decks such as the Trainer cards and the Fairy Garden Stadium card which enables Pokemon with Fairy-type Energy attached to it to not have any retreat cost. These new cards can help Pokemon TCG XY players build their winning deck of cards and beat their opponents.

Speaking of Trainer cards, Pokemon TCG XY Expansion is also introducing new trainers such as Shauna and Team Flare Grunt. And, some special items such as the Muscle Band and Hard Charm which are under the category of Tool cards will also be considered as Trainer cards. These Tool cards attach to your chosen Pokemon and it either adds to its offense or improves its defense skills.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG) Online is basically a digital version of the original and classic Pokemon Trading Card Game which is very popular around the world. The same rules apply to the classic Pokemon TCG and its online version. The great thing about the Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG) Online is that players from different parts of the world can now play with each other. Also, players can have the option to play with computer-controlled opponents. Plus, players can track their match history and customise their avatars by simply logging in to their Pokemon Trainer Club account.

Aside from the aforementioned features included in the Pokemon TCG XY Expansion, it also has Trainer Tokens, Gems and code cards to help players expand their online Pokemon collection. These can be bought on the Web site (Gems), earned by playing online (Trainer Tokens) or discovered in specially marked Pokemon TCG products (code cards).
