Missing details - you can only import 4 copies of any of your cards, and any additional copies are effectively converted to their equivalent of Hearthstone dust.

The trading function seems to be gone from the game based on assumptions based on this.

Looking to be that Pokemon Company looking to burn some card bridges with the fans now.

Curious as to why they'd bother given a Pokemon TCG already exists on mobile...but ooook then I guess. I'm sure people will be annoyed if they can't transfer progress from the current game over.


Also no PTCG GBC remake = 0/10 ;O;

I should try it out when it comes, when I was a kid I used to play the TCG game on their website many times. Didn't understand it completely at the time but I remember it being fun, the artwork and style felt really nice. The characters here look really bad in comparison though, looks more like the Sims.

Also looks like Shaggy is here, only to use 0.000001% of his power though.

The newer version is probably to help cope with new game mechanics as the current engine probably is spaghetti code and can't support those 4x Cards coming out in JP.

    I keep Facebook around for oauth2 (though Google largely fills the same roll for me these days) and Messenger. I rarely ever use the website, the app is set to not run in background on my phone and has all notifications disabled. Hopped on today to list a few things for sale/free in my area and just spent more time today scrolling up and down than I ought to
