Togekiss, a Pokémon card that was released in the Diamond & Pearl: Great Encounters expansion

A Pokémon in the Pokémon Trading Card Game is any card on which there is a Pokémon that is represented as they are in the games. Pokémon are used in the TCG to battle an opponent's Pokémon, much like Trainers battle in the games.

Contents

Each card has at least one attack listed, sometimes up to three, and most attacks use a set amount of Energy cards that the Pokémon must have attached to it in order to use that attack. They will also have a value designated as their Hit Points, which runs no lower than 30, and, until the ex arc, most often no higher than 120.

Also printed on each card is Type, rarity, set, set number and a Pokédex entry as flavor text.

Some cards may also contain a Weakness, Resistance, Retreat Cost or a Poképower or Pokébody.

Stages

Pokémon cards have four stages:

  • Baby, which is considered one stage lower than basic Pokémon-however, they are not required to play their evolved forms. They represent Baby Pokémon in the games.
  • Basic, which is a Pokémon that does not evolve from any other (aside from Baby Pokémon). Pokémon which do not evolve to or from another Pokémon and Pokémon SP are classified as Basic.
  • Stage 1, which is a Pokémon which has evolved from a Basic Pokémon, and
  • Stage 2, which is a Pokémon which has evolved from a Stage 1 Pokémon.
