Pokémon are creatures of all shapes and sizes who live in the wild or alongside their human trainers. Pokémon are raised and trained by their owners to become more powerful and even evolve into stronger Pokémon.
In the Pokémon Trading Card Game, players build decks around their favorite Pokémon and then play against each other, sending their Pokémon into battle to prove who the best Pokémon Trainer is. The games encourage strategic thinking and, basic math and reading skills. Pokémon puts a strong emphasis on good sportsmanship and respect for other players, as well.
