Completion Tips[]

  • Battling opponents allows you to earn card packs from them multiple times, using this you can create decks specifically to defeat certain opponents quickly so that you can earn packs to help you unlock cards faster.
  • Certain cards can only be unlocked through the Card Pop! feature, this allows two players using a Gameboy Color to give each other a card through the use of the GBC's infrared sensor. Because of the random nature of this feature and the fact that its impossible to use without two Pokémon TCG carts and two Gameboy Colors, these cards are not required for completion.
  • Tournaments at the Challenge Hall are initially held after you win your third and fifth Master Medals, upon completing the game, tournaments will be held at random with random prizes, allowing you to earn promo cards you may have missed. This is also a way to earn extra copies of promo cards.
