Each player plays the role of a Pokémon trainer that use their Pokémon creatures to battle the Pokémon creatures of the other Pokémon trainer.

The object of the game is to play your Pokémon cards, that represent different creatures, and be the first player to "knock out" (defeat) six opposing Pokémon. You play the game with a deck of sixty cards that include your Pokémon, as well as Trainer cards and Energy cards. Trainer cards affect the game, players, or Pokémon in different ways, most of them temporary, while Energy cards act as the resources in the game.


You start the game by drawing seven cards to your hand. Each player picks a Basic Pokémon from their hand and places it in front of them to start. This is called the Active Pokémon and is the one currently dueling. Players can also place other Basic Pokémon to fill up the five slots on their "Bench". Six cards are then set aside to act as Prize cards. Each time you defeat one of your opponent's Pokémon, you get to draw one of these Prize cards.
