The blog post says that:

Android Pay will support credit and debit cards from the four major payment networks: American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa. These cards are issued by many of the most popular US banks and credit unions, including American Express, Bank of America, Discover, Navy Federal Credit Union, PNC, Regions Bank, USAA, and U.S. Bank. Citi and Wells Fargo will be available in the next few days, Capital One is coming soon, and we’re adding new banks all the time.

So it seems that at this time, only a few banks will support tokenization with Android Pay.  We have been testing out Android pay over this past week and it appears that if your Bank/Credit Card supports tokenization, you will get confirmation from your bank that Android Pay added the card.  If not, your payments will be processed through the Virtual MasterCard that was the backend of Google Wallet.

The rollout will happen over the next few days so you should be seeing a Google Framework update as well as the update for Google Wallet.  To find out more head over to the source below.
