New Rules Changes Coming with X/Y TCG

The official Japanese Pokemon TCG website has announced upcoming rule changes for the TCG. The following rules will go into effect starting November 8th, the day the X and Y Beginning Set is released. It is unknown when these rules will go into effect internationally.

  • The player who goes first cannot use an attack on their first turn.
  • Pokemon Catcher will now require a coin flip.
  • Since the new Professor Sycamore card has the exact same effect as Professor Juniper, you can’t play both cards in the same deck.
