Pokémon TCG Online October Community Update

Prof_Mathis from the official Pokémon TCG Online forums posted this:

Major Pokémon TCG Online game updates occur once a month. These updates introduce major features to the game, such as multiplayer, trading, etc. Weekly patches are scheduled between these game updates, and typically introduce smaller features, such as the addition of promo cards, or fixes for existing bugs. Occasionally a weekly update will be delayed or pushed until the following week while the contents of that update go through additional testing. Armed with that information, I’d like to share some of the plans that are in place for the next few weeks.

The game will go into maintenance on Monday the 8th. During this time, we’ll be adding the Dragon Vault collection to the game, allowing players to start building decks with these exciting new cards. We’ll also use this opportunity to sneak in a handful of bug fixes that have been reported by the community. We’ve targeted the biggest, most annoying bugs for this update, including Hydreigon’s Dragonblast attack and Rescue Scarf’s persistent effect. Additional bug fixes will come in later game updates…

To summarize his post, here are a few bullet points that cover the main issues.

  • Dragon Vault cards and codes will be available to redeem with October 8th’s maintenance.
  • Major bugs like Hydreigon’s Dragonblast and Rescue Scarf’s continuing effect will be fixed on October 8th’s maintenance. Other bugs are being fixed as well.
  • Next major update of the game will be expected to be in the middle of October. This will include trading! However, the avatar builder is still under construction.
  • The Mac client is nearing completion. Plenty of testing still needs to be done, but this is optimistic news for Mac users. This will be found in November’s game update.

    I love the game for letting me play at any given moment. I wish they still had the flash version; that could have been VERY lucrative for them with the tablet owners. Other than that, I love love love the game and promote it all the time.

      The Dragon Vault cards are gorgeous. My Kyurem is 21/20, but in the online game it’s 21/21.
