In the most recent TCG Press Release from Pokémon, the first XY expansion has been announced. Pokémon TCG: XY will be released in English Feb. 5, 2014. Additionally announced was that the Kalos Starter Set decks releasing alongside the Black & White: Legendary Treasures expansion will feature the Fairy-type and Fairy Energy. These decks are to be released Nov. 8, 2013. The press release can be viewed below.

It is important to note that the press release states that Basic Fairy Energy and Fairy-type won't debut until the XY expansion in February, although they will also appearing in the Theme Decks in November. This could mean that the cards within the three Theme Decks are actually from the February XY TCG expansion. Additionally, France has announced a French release of Plasma Blast on Nov. 9, 2013 with the Mind Wipe and Solar Strike Theme Decks cancelled in favor of these three Kalos Starter Sets.

Press release

The World of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Is Coming to
Pokémon TCG Fans Around the Globe

Fairy-Type Pokémon and Basic Fairy Energy Debuting in Pokémon TCG: XY

BELLEVUE, WA—September 19, 2013—The Pokémon X and Pokémon Y video games launch worldwide October 12, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, and soon after, fans of the Pokémon Trading Card Game will experience the excitement of the next generation of Pokémon—Pokémon TCG: XY. Coming to stores on November 8, 2013, Pokémon TCG: XY—Kalos Starter Set gives players and collectors a choice of three 60-card decks, each one featuring a brand-new Pokémon: Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie. Fans will discover other new Pokémon from the Kalos region in the three XY—Kalos Starter Set decks. A deluxe version of the set will also include one Pokémon TCG: Black & White Series booster pack.

XY—Kalos Starter Set introduces Fairy-type Pokémon and Basic Fairy Energy! Fairy, the eleventh Pokémon type in the Pokémon TCG, is the first new type since the Dragon type was added in 2012. There are still many mysteries about the new Fairy type, such as which Pokémon will be Fairy type and how matchups will be affected by Fairy-type Pokémon. In order to attack with Fairy-type Pokémon, players will need to use Basic Fairy Energy, the ninth Energy type in the Pokémon TCG.

Following the launch of Pokémon TCG: XY—Kalos Starter Set, the Pokémon TCG: XY expansion, featuring 10-card booster packs, arrives at retail in North America on February 5, 2014. Fans can expect powerful new Pokémon, Trainer cards, and more when the new series kicks off. Each XY—Kalos Starter Set deck and XY booster pack will include a code card that unlocks virtual cards for the Pokémon TCG Online.
