Are you a huge fan of the Pokémon Trading Card Game? Then you absolutely need to check out these Pokemon Trainer Cards.
These trainer cards are one of three card sets from the Pokémon trading card game. Unlike the Pokémon cards that are used for directly attacking opponents and the Energy cards that are useful for powering those attacks, the training cards kind of take the back seat in the game. Think of them like supporting actors in your favorite blockbuster movie. When a training card is played during the game, the player is usually able to search through their cards and draw special effects.
What is the Pokémon Trading Card Game Anyway?
Remember when Pokémon Go was a thing? Remember when you went everywhere with your mobile phone in hopes that you could capture and train video game characters? Well, the trading card game is a card game based on the same characters.
The general idea of the game is to collect and trade with Pokémon themed playing cards. It consists of a deck of sixty cards – fifty Pokémon cards, two energy cards and eight trainer cards.
To play the game, each player has to build a deck of sixty cards using a combination of Pokémon, trainer, and energy cards. Typically, the player who is able to complete the most attacks and knock down their opponent’s hit points to zero wins the game.
The trainer cards are further divided into:
- The Ace Spec card
- The Goldenrod Game Corner card
- The Item card
- The Pokémon Tool
- The Rocket’s Secret Machine card
- The Stadium card
- The Supporter card and,
- Technical Machine
This product comes in a set of 25 cards. Each is a random mix of Pokémon trainer cards. This means if you order two different packs, one set might have 14 stadium cards, 2 Ace Spec cards, and 9 Pokémon tool cards while the other pack might have a totally different mix. Also the packs feature cards from the older editions of the game as well as newer editions.
The best part of this product is that all the cards are authentic. This means they are real Pokémon cards and not just shabby duplicate print outs.
So if you’re thinking of a fun game to add to game night or group picnics, this pack of Pokémon trainer cards is a great choice.
