On May 2, 2017 the Pokémon TCG Online was updated to version 2.44.0. Changes in this version include:


  • Additional foil effects implemented for cards from the Sun & Moon Series, rare Holo cards from XY—Evolutions, cards from the Generations expansion’s Radiant Collection, and Pokémon BREAK cards.


  • Pokémon Tool card pips now display a visual indicator while the card’s effect is prevented by a global effect.
  • Pokémon Tool card pips now display a visual indicator while attached to a Pokémon that is not eligible for the card’s effect (for example, a Fighting Fury Belt that is attached to an Evolution Pokémon and thus has no effect).
  • Adjusted the length of various match action timers to improve overall game tempo.


  • Basic Energy cards of the same type from a Trainer Kit deck are now displayed as a single stack, rather than separately by collector number.
