Information

Evolutions is the name given to the fifth and final main expansion of the XY BREAK Series of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. In Japan, it was released as Expansion Pack 20th Anniversary, the sixth and final subset in the Pokémon Card Game XY BREAK Era. It is based on Pokémon Red, Blue, and Green, featuring Generation I Pokémon. The English expansion was released on November 2, 2016, while the Japanese subset was released on September 16, 2016. Evolutions was released to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Pokémon.

Evolutions featured reprints of cards from Base Set, retaining most of the card layout. The Pokédex number, Weakness, Resistance, and Retreat cost were moved to their respective area used in the current card layout. The Pokémon's HP, Abilities, attacks, Resistance, and Retreat cost were updated to fit the current format. Pokémon-EX were stylized in a similar design and the card border was gold.
