In 1998, Pokémon fans in the U.S. got their first taste of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Collectors loved the cards for the amazing artwork and special features; gamers loved the strategy and balanced complexity of a game they could play with friends, in local competitions, or at tournaments. The Pokémon Trading Card Game continues to get better and better. So, whether you build competitive decks with your cards or store them in sleeves to keep them in mint condition, you’ll want to check out some of the highlights from the official Pokémon expansions that have hit the shelves over the years.
