Pokemon.. now that's a big step. Though I guess I like Pokemon the most but I enjoy playing the Yugioh game mechanics more.

Im glad pokemon now has a title on iOS, i hope this goes on, where we'll see iOS originals and even ports of the pokemon classics.

I got addicted to the real TCG before, but with Hearthstone being my CCG go-to right now, im not sure how much i would spend time on Pokemon TCG.

This is massive for me, I loved the CCG as a teen but lost interest after a few years. Will be great to see how it's evolved since then along with the possibilities for future games it brings with it. Can quite happily play multiple CCGs at once so this is definitely getting downloaded.

Looking forward to this. My kids love the cards, and every pack they buy comes with a code to redeem for an equivalent pack online. Time to start redeeming codes!

This isn't the first official Pokémon app on the App Store though. There's also a Pokédex.

Anyway, iPad only, so not for me.

I haven't been able to play at all. It gets to the main menu and then crashes after any selection after that. Not sure if it's an iPad Mini problem or a problem in general. I was excited to play it too.

Edit: Oh, it says with retina display. That could be the problem.
