  • We will also give you a basic Pokémon associated with your energy type.  You always start with that Pokémon on your bench.

  • You get 1 friendly mulligan (if you have no basic Pokemon in your starting hand, reveal your hand, reshuffle and draw a new hand.  Your opponent does not draw an extra card for this first mulligan.

  • You will be given control of a certain number of hexes on our game map that match your energy type.

  • When you challenge someone you are playing for control of a hex of their color.  If you win you claim a hex from them, unless they only have their 3 starting hexes, in which case you will claim an uncontrolled hex of that color.

  • Winning a match earns you 2 Pokémon coins.

  • Losing a match earns you 1 Pokémon coin.

  • If you control more hexes of an energy type than any other player you are that energy type’s Gym Leader.
    A gym Leader gets to add that energy type’s Basic Pokémon to his bench whenever they are defending a hex of that energy type, in addition to their own energy type’s Basic Pokémon.
