On Friday, we posted about a vague tweet from Pokemon YouTuber TheJWittz from the Pokemon Championship over the weekend mentioning that Pokemon: The Trading Card Game Online was coming to iPad. Well, that's since been confirmed by Polygon that it's not only real, but then Kotaku got word that it's coming this year.
The rest of the story, so far, is filled with speculation. You've been able to play the Pokemon card game online for quite a while now, and hopefully the game that's being teased is a full cross-platform version of that. It's working for Hearthstone [Free (HD)] and I'm super stoked for the possibility with Pokemon- Not because I particularly care about the Pokemon card game, but because I feel like this could potentially light a pretty huge fire under the collective butts at Wizards of the Coast to release an iPad Magic the Gathering Online client… As they surely can't ignore two huge successful digital card games on the platform, right?
Either way, typically speaking when big games like this from huge franchises get teased, it means they're awfully close to being released. Hopefully that's the case here.
