Pokemon TCG Digital Toolkit
Pokemon TCG Digital Toolkit is a collection of tools built for players of Pokemon TCG, both digitally and with paper. I've categorized these to separate what I have built and am maintaining and what other people have built so this page can serve as a one stop shop.
Built by me
Pokemon TCG Online -> Live decklist converter
Pokemon has two digital clients: older one called PTCGO and newer one called Live. Their decklist import/export are not compatible so the only way to move old decks to the new system is by hand.
That's no longer needed! With my Pokemon TCG Online -> Live decklist converter, you just paste in the Online export and copy the result into Live and you're good to play!
Pokemon TCG Card Viewer extension
Hover over PTCGO codes in the web and see the card images
Pokemon TCG decks are often shared online in the format of Pokemon TCG Online exports. Lists full of codes like "* 1 Bidoof BRS 120" but it's hard to remember which card is which.
With this extension, you can hover over those codes to see exactly what card it is.
Pokemon TCG Online Redeem Code Helper
Improved UX for redeeming Pokemon TCG Online redeem codes in bulk.
Did you order 100 or 200 booster codes from an online store? And they were provided in a long list in plain text via email or website? It's so easy to make copying mistakes (miss a character, copy extra space) or forget where you left off when jumping between the browser and PTCGO client.
With the extension, you'll get a table view into the codes, a click-to-copy button for each and a color indicator to let you see which ones you've copied already.
Deck Validator for Gym Leader Challenge
A web app for validating Pokemon TCG decks.
Gym Leader Challenge is a fun community-created format for Pokemon TCG. In singleton format, it's cumbersome to check if every card is valid so I made computer do that part.
Test out the early alpha at glc-checker.netlify.app/.
Prism.js syntax highlight for PTCGO deck lists
Make your deck lists look better
For anyone running their custom Pokemon TCG blog, a custom syntax highlighter is a must addition to their website.
Don't reinvent the wheel, use a tested parser for your PTCGO web apps.
A fast and simple proxy printer
Drag any image (or any amount of them) with ratio of 2.5/3.5 (w/h) into the field and print. It's designed to print 9 cards into an A4 page in size that can be cut and sleeved into standard Pokemon TCG/Magic the Gathering sleeves.
It's purely local, no data is sent anywhere out from your browser.
Use it at hamatti.org/proxy.
Search engine by attack damage
Hitting the right amount of damage is sometimes crucial. I built this search engine a few years back based on a discussion with fellow players in Discord.
Use it at pkmn-attack-damage.netlify.app.

Proxy printer by LimitlessTCG
The best Pokemon TCG proxy printer in the web.
Created by LimitlessTCG, this proxy printer allows you to search individual cards or paste a Pokemon TCG deck list and easily print proxies for playtesting.
Use it at limitlesstcg.com/tools/proxies.
Image Generator by LimitlessTCG
Turn your PTCGO decklists into beautiful images for sharing.
Taking screenshots in PTCGO is hard because on many resolutions, you can't fit all the cards into the same screen so you have to take multiple images and patch them together. This tool allows you to generate beautiful images from the decklists.
Use it at limitlesstcg.com/tools/imggen.
Deck Solitaire by LimitlessTCG
Test a deck in a solitaire mode: draw cards, test consistency and so on.
LimitlessTCG's new tool makes it easy to simulate a deck during its creation and finetuning phase. Wanna see how consistently you can reach your T1 combo? Load up your deck, simulate a round after round after round and make notes.
Use it at limitlesstcg.com/tools/tabletop.
First turn rules across the history
You are planning to play with decks from an older era but wonder what the rules were back then.
Pokemon TCG Archive's First Turn Rules document goes through all the different rulesets in Pokemon TCG.
This one is not a tool as such but a great resource for anyone playing the game or wanting to get into it. Especially the What to play section that has a nice selection of different decks from meta tier to budget options.
