A Pokémon Trainer Club (PTC) account is used to sign in to several mobile apps and games, such as the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online and Pokémon TV. A PTC account is also required to subscribe to our monthly newsletter and track progress of real-world events and tournaments conducted by Play! Pokémon.
You can add a kid to your PTC account by following the steps outlined in "How do I add a child to my Pokémon Trainer Club account?"
A PTC account allows parents to set limits on some in-game features for their kid’s account.
PTC is one of two account systems available to parents to allow their kid to play the popular mobile game Pokémon GO.
