Pokémon Trading Card Game Online Leaderboard
The Pokémon TCG Online is a virtual version of the card game in which you can play against AI opponents and real people over the net. The best part? You can unlock more cards the more you play and expand your collection for free, or you can buy real cards and use the packed-in codes to unlock them in the game! The rules aren't too complex and the game takes care of most of it for you; automatically drawing cards, flipping coins, etc. If you like Pokémon and especially if you like the video games, you'll probably have a blast with this too. You can create an account and download the game client here.
The "Modified" format is the official format used for competitive play in the Pokémon TGC. As of 8/28/2013, the format will include the following expansions, and cards from earlier expansions will be deemed unusable.
|Black & White—Next Destinies|

"In the interests of maintaining a healthy tournament environment, Pokémon Organized Play begins each new tournament season by removing older expansions from Modified format competition. Each annual rotation challenges existing players to create new strategies while enabling new players to get into Organized Play with minimal investment.
The 2014 season started on July 9th, 2013, so players could get an early start on working towards the 2014 Pokémon World Championships. However, we will rotate expansions on August 28th, 2013."
