Pokemon 2017 Standard Format Rotation

I just logged into Pokemon TCG Online this afternoon and was prompted with this message:

When I looked in the Pokemon TCG Online shop, I noticed that I could no longer buy older Booster Packs just as the message stated:

Lastly, I decided to check out this link to review the reason for removing these older Booster Packs:

Therefore, these MAJOR Expansion Sets have been removed:

  • XY
  • XY-Flashfire
  • XY-Furious Fists
  • XY-Phantom Forces
  • Black & White-Legendary Treasures
  • Black & White-Plasma Storm
  • Black & White-Plasma Freeze
  • Black & White-Plasma Blast
If you are playing with Standard Format decks in Pokemon TCG Online, this will affect which decks are valid for gameplay, but this also affects which decks you can build in the FUTURE (even in the Expanded Format) as well since you will no longer be able to acquire these Booster Packs from the Pokemon TCG Online Shop!!

If you want to display Pokemon TCG Online in Full Screen mode on Windows, you can do that simply by pressing Alt + Enter!

This will toggle  Pokemon TCG Online between Full Screen mode and Windowed mode.

That is all there is to it!

Challenging a friend in Pokemon TCG Online

If you ever want to challenge to a friend to a match in Pokemon TCG Online, it is not readily obvious on just how to accomplish that!

The way to do this is quite simple though!

Simply go into your list of Friends and click on the icon to "Challenge Friend to a Game"

Once the Challenge has been accepted, you will be able to select one of your Pokemon Decks to use for your battle:

You will then be able to battle you friend in Pokemon TCG Online!

However, unlike normal Versus battles, battling your friend is only for entertainment purposes and does not offer any rewards in the form of Coins, Tournament Tickets or Booster Packs as when you are playing on the normal Versus ladder! :-(

Oh well....
