Pokémon Trading Card Game introduces new Pokémon-GX cards

In early 2017, the Pokémon Trading Card Game introduces the Sun & Moon Series and new Pokémon-GX cards . The term GX describes special attacks and special Pokémon that are completely new to the Pokémon TCG. These exciting advancements will require players to develop new tactics and strategy as they engage in one of the world’s most popular trading card games.

·         GX Attacks
Each Pokémon-GX has a devastating GX attack that can instantly reverse a player’s disadvantage or create an early-game advantage. A player can’t use more than oneGX attack in a game, so deciding which GX attack to use and when poses a strategic challenge.

·         Pokémon-GX
In Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon, Pokémon-GX will make their first appearance. There are four defining characteristics of Pokémon-GX.

·         Only Pokémon-GX have GX attacks which can be used once per game.
·         Each Pokémon-GX has a maximum of two attacks in addition to its GX attack. Pokémon-GX have ordinary attacks and Abilities besides their GX attack. It’s possible to use different attacks as the situation demands.
·         Pokémon-GX have strong attacks and high HP, so they can overwhelm their opponent’s Pokémon without needing to rely on the GX attack.
·         This extra power comes with a price. When a Pokémon-GX is Knocked Out, the opponent takes two Prize cards, so players need to strategically decide when to use them.

·         Lunala
The Lunar Fall-GX attack lets a player immediately Knock Out any of their opponent’s Basic Pokémon.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
