Pokemon fans may not be aware but the Pokemon Trading Card Game Online has been available for some time now through the official Pokemon website. While it started off shaky, the game has evolved a great deal especially in recent months and is now making an appearance on the iPad worldwide.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game Online allows you to earn cards to create a deck and tackle both computer trainers and real life players from all over the world. You can get new cards for your deck by winning battles and earning coins to purchase new packs and theme decks. Physical cards you purchase will also come with a code you can enter in the game to redeem virtual cards. The card sets go all the way back to the Heart Gold & Soul Silver inspired sets and includes the new XY Rising Fist set as well.

The Pokemon TCG Online for iPad is available now in most countries including the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and will be available to the rest of the world by the end of the week.

  • Sounds interesting, am slightly tempted.

    • Can always try it out as its free. I’ve had fun with it but probably won’t get super into it, its a pretty slow grind for new cards

      • Well that sucks, I haven’t found a tcg replacement since Yugioh on the DS/PSP. I’ve considered Yugioh Zexal World Duel Carnival for the 3DS, but that game has no online 🙁

        • It might be a bit old but I’ve had a great time with Tag Force 3 for the PSP and I’m sure the newer versions of that are just as good. I would stay away from Duel Carnival in all honesty, looks like a very lazily made game.

          • Yeah thats the impression everybody has its a worthless port that will do more harm then good. Personally I really enjoyed the 5Ds games like Tag Force 4 & 5. Although Im still furious over Tag Force 6!
