New Evolutions series celebrates 20 years of Pokémon by revisiting the original Pokémon TCG cards.
The Pokémon Company has released the latest expansion to the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG), which will be the final add-on to the XY series. The next expansions to the game are likely to be based on the forthcoming 3DS games, Sun and Moon.
The Evolutions expansion restores the design, look and feel of the classic Base Set cards but includes updated game logic and stats. The nostalgic twist on powerful cards such Mega Venusaur-EX, Mega Charizard-EX, and Mega Blastoise-EX, updates the game, bringing classic cards in line with the current generation.
