The Pokémon Trading Card Game Online is an awesome way to play the Pokémon Trading Card Game on the go against players around the world. And with a variety of rewards and bonuses you can earn, there's much more to playing than simply the thrill of competition! Take a look at all of the opportunities for you to earn rewards and bonuses in the Pokémon TCG Online.
One of the best ways to add new cards to your Pokémon TCG Online collection begins before you even begin playing. Nearly every Pokémon TCG product you can buy in a store comes with a code card that unlocks in-game items like booster packs and promo cards. You don't have to choose whether to purchase physical cards or digital cards—with these code cards, you get both!
When you sign in to the Pokémon TCG Online, one of the first things you'll see is the Daily Bonus. Just click on the bouncing Poké Ball every day to claim rewards including Trainer Tokens, Tournament Tickets, and booster packs. New players get even larger rewards during their first 3 days.
Daily & Special Challenges
Players are offered one new Daily Challenge per day, each associated with a particular Energy type. Complete these challenges to earn rewards such as Trainer Tokens or booster packs and to gain experience for that challenge's Energy type. You can level up in an Energy type by completing these challenges, and when you do, you'll earn additional promo rewards such as Energy-specific coins, card sleeves, and deck boxes. When you first begin to play the Pokémon TCG Online, you can have only one Daily Challenge active at a time. As you advance in level, you can work on completing up to three Daily Challenges simultaneously.
Sometimes, a limited-time Special Challenge will appear! Special Challenges tend to be more difficult than Daily Challenges and offer even greater rewards for completion. These rewards can include booster packs, promo items, Trainer Tokens, and Reward Chests (both Uncommon and Rare Holo).
If you are new to the Pokémon Trading Card Game, the online tutorial is an awesome way to learn how to play. What's more, you can gain rewards to help kick-start your collection, including a new theme deck, 250 Trainer Tokens, a booster pack, and a random Pokémon-EX. Pokémon-EX are some of the most powerful cards in the game, so they're an especially valuable addition to your collection!
In the Trainer Challenge, you'll play using theme decks against computer-controlled opponents in three different League Cup competitions. The Trainer Challenge offers players multiple levels of rewards, including:
Winning a match with a Basic theme deck unlocks a new card for the deck. There are 7 cards to unlock for each Basic deck.
Winning 12 matches with a Basic theme deck unlocks that deck for use in Versus Mode.
Winning 12 matches with another theme deck (one that can already be used in Versus Mode) earns you a booster pack.
Each of the 12 Trainers in the Trainer Challenge has a progress meter, measured in stars. When you play a match against that Trainer, the meter will fill up, and you'll receive Trainer Tokens based on your progress. When you hit four stars, you'll win a booster pack.
The first time you defeat all 12 Trainers in a League, you'll win booster packs!
Bonus Wheel Rewards
After every Versus or Tournament match you play, win or lose, you get to spin a Bonus Wheel for a reward. These wheels sometimes feature cool bonus rewards in addition to the standard reward! Bonus Wheel rewards include Trainer Tokens, Tournament Tickets, Uncommon Chests, and the Victor's Mystery Box.
In Versus Mode, you can choose a theme deck or a deck you've built from your growing collection to play against another player. Then, after every match—whether you win or lose—you will earn rewards, including unlocking the Mental Might theme deck for your collection after playing your first Versus match.
Versus Points are awarded each time you win a match in Versus Mode. As you earn Versus Points, you'll unlock Versus Rewards—cool stuff like Trainer Tokens, booster packs, even Pokémon-EX! Every three weeks, all Versus Points reset and the Versus Rewards rotate, so there are always new rewards to unlock.
You can enter 8-player single-elimination tournaments by redeeming Tournament Tickets or Trainer Tokens. Tournaments can use theme decks or decks you've built. Each tournament offers rewards depending on how well you do, including Trainer Tokens, Tournament Tickets, booster packs, and Uncommon Chests. And you get to spin a Bonus Wheel after every match you play!
