The other boost is the 3-Hour Duel Boost which costs $4.99. This gives an improved Enhancement Booster, you get 10 Monthly Points when you lose a League Match and you gain 150 Monthly Points.
The game has now also fully implemented Z-Moves, and for a while there is a special Login Bonus featuring a new Pikachu figure with an exclusive Z-Move, Castrstropika, which has a new effect. Solgaleo, Lunala, Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma all also have the unique Z-Move. Z-Moves are activated when the Z-Move Gauge is full and turns all segments of the wheel into the Z-Move. The power of the move is double the figure's highest attack. All 18 type moves have got an Z-Move

Pokémon TCG Card Dex

A new app has been announced. This Is the Pokémon TCG Card Dex, an app that lets fans keep track of their collection using the camera on devices to create scans of their cards. Even damaged and obscured cards can be scanned. It also provides a database for all Sun & Moon and beyond cards. It currently does not have any tracking of earlier cards. It is currently available in Sweden on iOS and Android and coming worldwide soon. The app supports English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Brazilian Portuguese languages.
Edit @ 11:25: On testing the app, it's worth noting that the reflective elements that come from sleeves that cards are in or folders cards are in does prevent the app from getting a good look at the card and means scanning will take longer
