Build Notes | May 15th, 2012






The new version of the Pokémon TCG Online Trainer Challenge will be available for download once the game is out of maintanence. This is still an early version of the Trainer Challenge, so it’s still a bit rough around the edges. We’ll be replacing placeholder text and effects, cleaning up image resolution and hammering out game flow in the coming weeks.



If you encounter errors during gameplay, please use the Report a Problem button to submit a bug report. These will be added to the list below, and will be fixed in a future build. Future build notes will include a list of what’s been fixed in that build, as well as a list of outstanding issues.
