Expert Deck Leafeon vs. Metagross

Expert Deck Leafeon vs. Metagross was released in Japan on November 20th. It comes with two 60-card theme decks, damage counters, a coin, a playmat, and a CD for the Pokemon Online Game. It retails for 3,150 yen in Japan (about $30).

The two decks are intended for players who are aiming toward the World Championships and other high-stakes events, and thus they are 60-card decks instead of the standard 30-card half-decks that are more commonly seen in Japan. Each deck is completely functional even without doctoring, containing multiple copies of key cards, including a maxed line of the deck’s main Pokemon.

The online TCG simulator game offers several different modes of play: There’s matchmaking, where players are matched with random players of the same skill level; friend battles, where players battle people from their friends list, and an offline mode where players battle the computer. The game ranks players according to their win record, and grants in-game rewards such as medals. Players can also join teams, which are ranked collectively. Players can communicate with each other during their games by using various set phrases; this is similar to the way communication was handled in Super Smash Bros Brawl. In December, PCL will also be hosting an online tournament using the game. Few details about the tournament are known at this time. The simulator will be supported until August 31st, 2010, but it is unknown whether the servers will be maintained after that date.
