Also coming later this week are the addition of booster packs and theme decks from Sun & Moon series expansions to the Pokémon TCG Live's in-game shop. Players will be able to obtain these packs from August 10th, using Crystals earned in-game. These products are just the first step in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live expanding their support for the Expanded format, with the developers declaring they intend to bring the full Expanded format play experience to the game in the future.
Finally, the developer letter announced that several limited-time distributions for the Pokemon Trading Card Game Live will be held during the Twitch livestream of the Pokémon World Championships, which begins this Friday, starting with a code for a hyper rare Charizard ex card. Additional code distributions will also be made over the course of World's for digital booster packs from the upcoming Scarlet & Violet - Obsidian Flames expansion, amongst other items. Obsidian Flames will launch in the Pokémon TCG Live from August 10th together with the new Obsidian Flames Battle Pass, ahead of receiving its official physical launch on Friday August 11th.
