The release of Pokémon TCG: Black & White-Emerging Powers, coming this August, will mark a new era in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. This expansion is the first to give players full access to theme decks and booster packs in the new player-versus-player Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Pokémon players can simply log onto the website and have the ability to battle with players from all over the world.

The decks also allow players to build customized decks for online battle with virtual cards unlocked by special in-pack codes. The expansion features only Unova-region Pokémon characters, as well as 90 cards, including brand-new Item cards to revitalize each deck. This world contains 25 never-before-seen Pokémon, including the debut of the Legendary Trio of Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion.

The two Black & White-Emerging Powers theme decks hit major retail stores nationwide on August 17, and will feature a foil card. The four booster pack designs, debuting in stores August 31, feature new Pokémon Tornadus, Cobalion, Braviary, and Darmanitan, with each booster pack also including one foil card.
