So, in the world of Pokemon TCG, 'Standard' and 'Expanded' are two different formats for how you can play the game. Standard format includes only the most recent sets of cards, usually the ones from the last couple of years. This keeps the game fresh and evolving. Expanded, on the other hand, allows for a much wider range of cards, going back several years. This means you can pull out some old favorites and mix them with new strategies!

Standard format = newer cards. Expanded format = a lot more cards from way back. Keeps things spicy!

As someone who's been playing for years, the main diff is that Standard keeps changing with new sets, so you gotta keep up. Expanded lets me use almost any card I've collected over the years, which is super cool for trying out different combos.
