    TPCi to release online version of the TCG: Trainer Challenge to debut in April 2011

    For years, official digital representations of the Pokémon Trading Card Game had gone dormant. It has been over a decade since TCG fans had enjoyed their card-battling experiences with computer and video game versions of the Pokémon TCG via Pokémon Play It! or the Game Boy Color game. Starting in April, trading card fans young and old will finally get the chance to play the trading card game without the actual cards once again with the Pokémon Trainer Challenge.

    This came out of nowhere!
    It's great news, and I'll definitely be interested!

    The whole Pokémon browser experience is honestly getting very good. The Trainer Club, followed by Global Link and soon enough, this. Kudos to TPCi -- we're now finally getting services similar to the ones of Japan.

    Okay, that sounds cool. =D Wonder if it will ever expand for PvP.

    It's just the Internet. Calm down.

    I sure hope this is foreshadowing a TCG game for the (3)DS.

    I think that's a given! It's called Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, after all. Still, it's awesome that they're even introducing characters for it.
    Either way, this seems like something that will vitalize the Pokémon TCG once more. Also, it appears to be western developed. That's something rare.

    Most of all, if something like this is ever to happen, it has more chances of being on the style of the old TCG games -- meaning having a plot and everything -- rather than being just a simulator, which we now have.

    Reminds me of Red Shark, except with more flare and shine... and being official.

    YES! Like with Yugioh, I like the Pokemon TCG, there's just no decent way to play it without spending money on the actual cards...but now...hooray!

    A portable game with a story would be cooler though, but oh well.

    Ooh, think about this:

    Using Augmented Reality, one could take a picture of a card, which will unlock it in TCG Online.

    Yes. YES. YES! Finally I don't have to play GBC to battle cards any time. I wish there was an offline mode.

    And the best thing is I DON'T HAVE TO GO USING A GOOD SIX DOLLARS OF MY ALLOWANCE, BECAUSE YOU 'WIN' Cards on this according to the website. Well, I'll be waiting.

    Nice. I never got to play the TCG with others, and they never made any video games of it like Konami does at least twice every year with Yu-Gi-Oh. (well, there was that one, but...)

    So, A way for people to play that don't want to spend $100+ for cards that will be shuffled out the next time a pack comes out.

    This better come out in the US or I'll punch a baby.

    I think the preview site is already in English.

    Correct. The site is currently US-only. No European branches have announced this, nor are any of the domains associated with European countries registered by either of TPCi's registrars.

    This is a ripoff of



    Because they're both using codes off of their tabletop gaming products for an online game.
