Mega Evolution Pokémon


Mega Evolution

The revolutionary Mega Evolution game mechanic is coming to the brand-new Pokémon TCG: XY expansion! Mega Evolution Pokémon evolve from Pokémon-EX, extremely powerful cards in their own right, creating a force that will change the way Pokémon TCG players build decks and create strategies for battle.


Before playing a Mega Evolution Pokémon to evolve a Pokémon-EX, players must consider the situation carefully—doing so ends their turn immediately, which means they can’t attack that turn! The risky move is worth the reward, however, because Mega Evolution Pokémon exhibit a strength that surpasses that of Pokémon-EX. Hard-hitting attacks and high HP totals make Mega Evolution Pokémon dominant during Pokémon TCG matches.


Fairy-type Pokémon


Mega Evolution

New Fairy-type Energy and Pokémon were introduced in the XY—Kalos Starter Set, and become a huge feature in the XY expansion! Fairy, the eleventh Pokémon type in the Pokémon TCG, is the first new type since the Dragon type was added in 2012. Prepare for battle with awesome Pokémon such as Yveltal-EX, as well as strategic Pokémon such as Slurpuff and Aromatisse.


And don't forget to include the Fairy Garden Stadium card in every Fairy-type deck you build! When it's in play, all Pokémon with Fairy-type Energy attached to them have no retreat cost, giving you maximum mobility during battle!
