Original Pokémon Cards get a Makeover with XY-Evolutions

In celebration of Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, a new set of trading cards has been announced. The Pokémon TCG: XY-Evolutions expansion takes the very first cards and gives them a remake complete with new moves, artwork, and abilities to keep up with other current releases. That cherished Charizard you desperately sought is now stronger and just as desirable.

There will be over 100 new cards to collection. XY-Evolutions includes Mega EX cards of Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise. There will also be new BREAK cards and other Mega Evolved Pokémon such as Pidgeot, Slowbro, and more. Two themed decks revolving around Pikachu and Mewtwo make an appearance in the lineup as well. All packs will be available for purchase on October 30 in Toys R Us, October 31 for GameStop, and November 2 for other locations.

While some of these aren’t direct remakes of the old cards, the revamping will certainly drive your nostalgic needs. Remember to include all trading cards in your decks for Pokémon TCG Online to battle others around the world.
