If you are familiar with the Pokémon Trading Card Game, you will be aware of how each booster pack, theme deck and Elite Trainer Box contains an extra card with a code for the online version of the game. The added benefit of this is how it allows fans of the card game to build a digital collection alongside the physical cards. Better still, and much like the physical booster packs, the digital packs are also randomly assorted; whereas the theme decks are digital replicas.
