How to play Pokémon TCG Online

Things are not as hard as you think
Do not worry. Although the gameplay of the game has a depth with many unpredictable techniques, the basic gameplay of Pokémon TCG Online is quite simple. The matches are arranged in the form of 1v1. In it, you and other players will bring your Pokémon to the arena in the form of cards.
To participate in a match, you need to have at least 25 cards to be thoroughly shuffled, in which some cards are energy cards. At one point, you can only use 6 Pokémon including 1 Pokémon in the arena and the remaining 5 Pokémon on Bench.
Cards that want to be fought must be Basic cards, that is, Pokémon that are still in their original, not yet evolved or some special Pokémon. Of course, each Pokémon has its own skills and attributes depending on the type of card and its origin.
How to evolve a Pokémon card
For example, If you have an original Pikachu card (Basic) and you own a Raichu card (Stage 1), you can apply it to the Pikachu card to evolve into Raichu. New Raichu will have the same skills and attributes as in the old Raichu card. Note that you can only upgrade sequentially, not jump from Basic to Stage 2 or 3.
How to attack
The cards have already written the skills including some information such as the name of the skill, the amount of damage and the number of energy cards required. When it’s your turn if you have enough energy cards you can use that skill to attack the opponent. You can only add one energy card at each turn, so you should use the skill appropriately.
