Pixelmon TCG adds various items and blocks to the game in order to facilitate the collecting of, trading of, and playing of the Pokémon TCG within Pixelmon.

Getting started

Upon first joining a server, a player will not have any Pixelmon TCG cards yet. In order to get started, booster packs can be bought with PokéDollars from a shopkeeper within a town. Alternatively, a camera can be used to take photos, which can then be printed into cards using blank cards and a printer.

Printing cards

After acquiring a photo of a Pokémon, a printer is needed to make the photo into a card.

After obtaining a printer, Grid Blank Fire Card (uncommon).pngblank cards can be combined with photos to create Pixelmon TCG cards. There are different types of blank cards depending on the energy type and rarity of the card.

Putting a blank card and a photo into a printer will produce a card of the Pokémon depicted in the photo. A blank card can also be placed in a printer without a photo, creating an energy card. Trainer cards cannot be printed yet.

A card can only be created if its energy type, rarity, and Pokemon match an existing card in a supported set of TCG cards; at the moment, only cards in Base Set, Jungle and Fossil are supported.

Building a deck

Cards can be stored in a Grid Deck holder.pngDeck holder or a Grid Card binder.pngCard binder. Deck holders can hold a maximum of 60 cards and can be used in battle. Card binders can store a larger number of cards but cannot be used in battle. Both of them can be bought from a shopkeeper.


Watching a Pixelmon TCG battle

A battle can be started by using a Grid PixelmonTCG BattleBox.pngPixelmonTCG BattleBox while holding a valid card deck (more details in the TCG official rulebook) which will be used in the battle.

Battle rules are the same as in the official Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Below are current limitations of TCG battles:

  • To stop an ongoing battle, the BattleBox must be destroyed, the server must be restarted, or both participants have to leave the server and rejoin.
  • The initial hand will be redrawn until there is a basic-stage Pokémon in the hand.
  • All cards and attacks in Base Set, Jungle and Fossil are implemented. The current development status of each card/attack/ability can be followed here.
