It is time to go live…With the beta!
As in going live with the beta…Worldwide! That is right, the Pokemon TCG Beta is now worldwide! You too can try out, test and play the new Pokemon TCG online client. From Canada, Europe, America and elsewhere!
When you start up the application, you will need to create an account. You do have the option to migrate your existing Pokemon TCG Online account. Though, this is not Mandatory. Just not that if you do transfer your account then your collection will also transfer. Also, the transfer is one way and you can not revert your account back to Pokemon TCGO.
It is worth noting that if you are playing in Team Challenge that you DO NOT migrate your account to Pokemon TCG Live. Currently, Team Challenge is taking place on Pokemon TCGO.
There is currently no word when Pokemon TCG Live will end the beta phase. Though, it is expect that Pokemon TCG Online will be retired and replaced with Pokemon TCG Live. When that happens, players will need to migrate their Pokemon TCGO accounts to Pokemon TCGL.
