    Default How to work the TCG into an anime verse story...

    without it devolving into a Yu-Gi-Oh clone, if that is even possible?

    So I have a plot bunny involving what the Pokemon TCG would be like in the show. Granted, my first fic tried to answer this question, but sounded too much like it had walked out of Yu-Gi-Oh. Is there any way to write a fic in which the TCG is a major component and not make it over the top?

    Maybe,
    All the pokemon were turned into cards by something evil and now someone must battle using them to free them?
    at least it didn't have anything to do with the heart of the cards

    Maybe the TCG is used in schools in order to teach children about Types and Pokémon and Items before they become actual Pokémon Trainers, and when they feel the child has a great understanding of the TCG, they give them a real Pokémon and make them have actual battles, and then they would say that the TCG helped the children become more strategic when asked what the point of teaching them through the TCG was.

    I like this idea! Kyuujux has a great idea too, but if this bunny ever comes to fruition, I'll probably go with this one

    Pokémon battles on motorcycles would solve all your plot bunny problems.

    Pokemon cards could be kinda like baseball cards.

    Used to simulate battles between famous trainers or Pokemon more powerful than the average person has for entertainment purposes.

    Maybe it's a good idea to look into the TCG game from the GBC so long ago. It happened before Yu-Gi-Oh became a huge name, and seems to carry its own direction (although it seemed like a semi-clone of the typical pokemon league story). I remember reading Pojo magazines and the website back then too... it's just too bad I can't recreate that feeling.

    If you want to make people forget any ties a pokemon TCG story can have with yu-gi-oh, throw in Imakuni?, and you're good. ;)
    Oh?

    What about a Bakugan-Like story, in which if the pokemon's TCG is used on it, it will get the bonus written in TCG card. And ability cards like Koga's Ninja Trick, you get it right?

    They should make all quadruple Pokemon ride able along with Gogoat.

    It's already IN the anime. James has some cards at a few points (usually replaced in the dubs because of weird FCC regulations).

    So basically it's already established to exist. And as for how you do it without making it a YGO clone...that's pretty simple. Just keep it as a GAME and not that weird ancient pharoahnic mishmash mystic stuff.

    Are you talking about his Pokédex-like cards?

    I like the baseball card idea, but I'm not sure how to make the Bakugan idea work.

    Like we put the TCG card on the head of out pokemon and He gets (More Power (Card: Ex type gets more power), Some Bonus, etc). Limited no. of how many of those cards we can use in battle. In original bakugan the bonus cards are 3 per battle and Power cards are 3. Total 6.

    They should make all quadruple Pokemon ride able along with Gogoat.

    If memory serves, Digimon Tamers did something like that with trading cards

    Yeah. They used to be actual TCG cards.
