    Oh, man. I can see it now– I take out the cards, point at my friend(s) and shout “I challenge you to a Pokérmon battle!”

    just an idea: with all the fuzz about free-to-play tcc games coming up Heartstone, Duel of Champions, Scrolls etc wouldn’t it be a good marketing move for Nintendo to release a Pkmn one on the WiiU/PC?

    • Kaetsu

      I would love to see a F2P Pokemon TCG on Wii U especially since Nintendo has been dabbling in the F2P market.

      • James Enk

        i think it would be a good move and releasing it on pc may be good marketing move to boost the Nintendo brand to a different audience

    Nice! X and Y versions are coming! I picked up some Black 2 playing cards from Pokémon Centre Tokyo last time I was there, so I’ll have to get these at some point.

  • joemari5

    Why are the starter evos’ names different in the cards? has anyone noticed them too?

    • Hayato

      These cards are only released in Japan, so I guess they’re using the Japanese names.

  • KatsuraRen

    Where in Japan can I get these?
