If you're looking to pick up the physical version of Link Evolution, three exclusive cards will come with it. The three cards - with their rough translations - are:

  • The spell card, Cynet Code.
    • "If a "code talker" monster is special summoned from the Extra Deck to your field (except during the damage step) you can target one of those monsters, add one Cyberse monster with the same attribute from your deck to your hand, also you cannot special summon monster from the extra deck for the rest of the turn except Cyberse monster (even if this card leaves the field). You cannot add other monster with that same attribute to your hand by the effect of "Cynet Code" this turn, and you only activate the effect of "Cynet Code" once per Chain.
  • The effect monster, Micro Coder
    • If a Cyberse monster you control would be used as Link Material for a "Code Talker" monster this card in you hand can also be used as material. IF this card is sent from the hand ofield to the GY as material for the Link Summon of a "Code Talker" monster you can either add one "Cynet" spell/trap from your deck to your hand or if this card on the field was used as material, you can add one Level Four Cyberse monster instead. YOu can only use each effect of "Micro Coder" once per turn.
