General

  • Cards may appear blurry for a small number of specific MacBook configurations.

Gameplay: General

  • Attack effects that remove the attacking Pokémon from play are processed after the game resolves any Knock Outs that occur due to the attack's damage, rather than before.
  • Cards removed from the attacking Pokémon to meet the requirement of an optional "if you do" attack effect are removed before damage is calculated and applied to the Defending Pokémon, rather than after.

Gameplay: Versus

  • Some players may not appear in the Versus Leaderboards Pokemon.com, despite having earned Versus points during the time frame selected.

Cards: Collection

  • Dragon Majesty booster packs are not ordered properly when Sort By is set to Alphabetical (A-Z) or Alphabetical (Z-A). This issue also occurs in the Trade area of the game.
  • The pack type for unopened theme decks is Bundle Pack, rather than Theme Deck.

Cards: Deck Manager

  • In some rare cases an account can get into a state where navigating to the Deck Manager causes the Deck Manager tutorial to reappear and the client to become non-responsive. Until a global fix is deployed, the support team will be fixing this on a per-account basis for users that create a support ticket to report that they are affected by this issue.

Cards: Trade

  • While an avatar item is equipped any additional, tradable copies of that item in the Collection cannot be included in a trade offer.
