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'm thinking of modding my Switch but am a bit nervous about it

    Modding for the first time is a bit daunting. But you get used to the process the more you decide to update, add things, etc.

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    What model Switch do you have? If you have a launch-model Switch, then you can do the really easy RCM exploit. It's easiest if you buy a jig, which are cheap, since you'll need to connect two pins within the right JoyCon rail whilst holding down Power and Volume Up.

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    If you have a more recent Switch model, that exploit has unfortunately been patched...
