The next generation has arrived. Diamond & Pearl will take you to the unexplored Sinnoh region, where you can catch new Pokemon and explore previously unknown areas. You'll enjoy new gameplay, including the Level Up, which makes your Pokemon stronger… new attacks… and even a brand new look. The Pokemon TCG: Diamond & Pearl expansion will take any Trainer to the next level.
The first significant expansion to the Diamond & Pearl Series is called Diamond & Pearl. It was initially released in Japan as the Diamond Collection and Pearl Collection, and they were both parts of the Pokemon Card Game DP Era. It's based on Pokemon Diamond and Pearl and features Generation IV Pokemon and the Legendary Pokemon Dialga & Palkia. The English expansion was published on May 23, 2007, and the Japanese edition was released on November 30, 2006.
Diamond & Pearl introduced Pokemon LV.X as a new type of Pokemon. Pokemon LV.X is a “Level-Up Pokemon”. It can use any attack, Poke-Power, or Poke-Body from its previous Level. The Psychic type for poison-type Pokemon replaced the Grass-type. The Stadium and Supporter cards were a separate class of cards. The 4-per-deck rule was removed from Darkness Energy and Metal Energy, which received new primary Energy forms.
Players can search for cards that allow them to find a Darkness Energy or Metal Energy card. Unown was considered separate Pokemon, and the letter following the name was added. Diamond & Pearl is bursting with new Pokemon, a completely new look and entirely new game mechanics. You can't miss the ultimate version of a Pokemon's training… Pokemon.LV.X.
EX Ruby & Sapphire released Pokemon-ex cards, a significant shift in the game. These Pokemon are added to the top of their previous levels–Empoleon (4/130) jumps up into Empoleon (120/130). Empoleon LV.X retains all the attacks of Empoleon but adds its Poke-Power, another attack, and a variety of tricks and strategies to win more battles.
Every Pokemon TCG expansion has new attacks. But this time, it's double: new attacks on new Pokemon. Infernape (5/130), a Fire-type, fast-moving Pokemon, requires only one or two Energy and has a free retreat cost. You might want something more powerful, such as Staraptor (16/130 ). It can either use its Brave Heart attack for 100 damage or prepare with Accelerative Dive to protect itself from the attacks of its opponent's Pokemon.
Also, the cards have a more modern look. This allows for more extensive illustrations and additional Pokedex information. It also includes descriptions of the Pokemon in the video game. Also, Weakness and Resistance now have a value specific to the Pokemon affected by them. It's no longer a matter of whether the Pokemon is weak to another Pokemon, and it's also essential to know how severe it is.
A few basic rules were changed to add more strategy to the fantastic game. The starting player can now draw a card during their first turn, but they cannot play any Stadium cards or Trainer cards that turn. Building an all-Darkness deck with basic Energy versions of Darkness Energy or Metal Energy is now easier. Finally, the Unown Pokemon are back with even more hidden powers, and you can now play four of each Unown.
Enjoy the next evolution of the Pokemon TCG.
