My first YouTube video:
How to play the Pokemon trading card game!

Things i forgot in video:
Draw 1 card every turn at the beginning of your turn.
Your Pokemon’s paralysis goes away after your turn is over.
When confused, flipping heads means it works.
You can only evolve each Pokemon 1 stage per turn, not 2 stages in 1 turn.
A 2nd or 3rd stage evolution card cannot be played without evolving the basic first.
Resistance only applies for the type specified on the card.
Pokemon powers/Pokebody—-special ability a Pokemon has, listed above the its moves. They can be used in addition to an attack, but follow the directions carefully.
You can have a max of 4 of the same exact card in your deck.
Sorry about that!!

Also, here is a link to a decent written version of the rules:

Comment below with any questions you have, and I’ll try to answer them!
Thanks for watching!
