Pokémon Play Lab is a fun and engaging way to learn to play the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) through guided play experiences. Designed for beginners and casual players, Play Lab offers four modular experiences — Poké Catch, Catch and Attack, 30-Card Demo Deck Battle and a Pokémon TCG Live Demo — each ranging in duration and play level to suit all kinds of Trainers. Play Lab participants will have a chance to receive a Pokémon pin and a demo deck whilst supplies last.
The Play Lab experience includes:
Poké Catch is an entry-level teaching tool designed to introduce young players to Pokémon and Energy types.
Catch & Attack requires a basic knowledge of Pokémon TCG mechanics as it introduces Basic Pokémon and turn order.
30-Card Demo Deck Battle: The 30-Card Demo Deck Battle showcases a simplified Pokémon TCG experience, featuring the Umbreon V, Lucario V or Greninja V demo decks. This battle also introduces Abilities, Pokémon V and more complex game actions such as “searching the deck.”
Pokémon TCG Live Demo allows participants to learn the basics of a Pokémon TCG battle through a simplified version of the digital game. The demo is available in a guided mode using an Umbreon V deck or an unguided mode using one of the three 30-Card Demo Decks.
