Pokemon TCG Online How to Redeem Booster Codes by Prof_Steel

Hello Pokémon Fans!

Want to get in on the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online action right now!?

This FAQ is designed to help you redeem all of your booster pack codes properly and open your packs up for use in the Pokémon TCG Online.

Q: Where are these booster pack codes?

A: In order to get more virtual cards for your Pokémon TCG Online card collection, you’ll have to get yourself a BLW booster pack! That would be one of these packs:


Make sure the back of the pack you purchased contains the words “Contains 1 code card. This card gives your access to the beta test for the Pokémon TCG Online.” (Also note that not all packs for Pokémon Black and White include code cards in them so you must double check for the special icon if you wish to get a code card in your pack!)
Once you physically open the pack, look for a card that looks like this:
This card is very important!!! On the back of the card, it contains the code that you will redeem to get a booster pack credit good for one digital booster pack.

Q: How do I redeem my BLW booster pack code?

A: Redeeming Packs is not only easy but it can be fun as well. All you have to do to redeem your pack is log into pokemontcg.com, then click “Shop”

You will notice at the top left, there is a yellow button to “Redeem Codes”.

After clicking “Redeem codes” this screen will appear where you can enter your code.

Next, just enter the code from your code card into the field and the system will automatically check to see if it is a valid code. If it is a valid code, then a message will appear.


Go ahead and click Close, then hit the green “Redeem” button! After a successful code redemption, you will see a screen like this one.


Please write down your transaction ID #.

Q: I have redeemed a code now. How do I open/use my pack?

A: In order to add your new booster pack to your online collection, you will need to open it up online. Once your code has been redeemed click the Shop button again. Once you have the shop open, you will notice a box that says “Booster Credits: _”


From here, you can select which booster pack(s) you would like to spend your Booster Credit(s) on.

Once you have selected a pack you want by clicking on the picture of the pack, you will then want to “purchase” it. Click the green “Buy” button underneath the Booster pack product information.


Once you have clicked the green Buy button, a message will appear to confirm your purchase


Once you have clicked the Buy button, a message will appear confirming a successful purchase.


Q: How do I open my booster pack(s) up?

A: Almost there! Once you have successfully purchased your booster pack, you will need to click the Pokémon TCG Online link at the bottom.


You will be brought into a lobby with other Pokémon TCG Online players. On the right of the chat box, you will see a few red buttons. Please click the “Collection” button.


After clicking the red Collection button, click the “Packs” tab in the upper left corner.


You will be directed to a screen that displays your unopened packs.


Just click on the image of the pack you wish to open and then click Open Pack!


You have now opened your pack for the Pokémon TCG Online! Take some time to review the cards that were included in your pack. This is our favorite part!


After opening your packs, you can then head to the Deck Builder so you can start building a deck for use against other players just like you!


Alright, Pokémon fans! This ends the FAQ for redeeming your Booster pack codes and opening up your virtual card packs.

Please note redeeming a pre-constructed deck code will put the Theme Deck into your packs section for opening and you will need to open it for it to appear in your collection.

I hope this FAQ has been helpful. For more helpful information on how to get started with Pokémon TCG Online please check out Prof Snow’s New Players Guide!
