A new Pokemon smartphone app is on the way to iOS and Android. The Pokemon Company has announced the Pokemon TCG Card Dex, a free application that allows users to easily catalog their Pokemon card collections.
The Pokemon TCG Card Dex is available today in Sweden and will expand to other regions “soon.” The app allows you to scan your physical Pokemon TCG cards using your smartphone’s camera and keep track of those you own. You’re also able to browse an extensive database featuring every card since the release of the Pokemon TCG: Sun & Moon series and manually catalog your collection.
The Pokemon Company hasn’t announced when the Pokemon TCG Card Dex will be available to download in other parts of the world, but the application supports several languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. The Pokemon Company says that any card you scan will be displayed in the app in the language you’ve selected, even if it differs from that on your actual card.
The Card Dex app arrives shortly after the release of the latest Pokemon TCG expansion: Sun & Moon–Team Up. First announced during the 2018 Pokemon World Championships last August, the expansion introduces new Tag Team GX cards that feature Pokemon duos with incredibly powerful attacks and high HP. You can read more about the expansion on the Pokemon TCG website.
