    I read a story couple days ago about a Pokemon TCG for NDS, but it's more of a training game for the real TCG. Does anyone got any more details, supposedly it was gonna be released on Aug 5 in Japan:

    GameFreak and Nintendo are going to release a new version of Pokemon Trading Card Game on the 5th of August 2011 in Japan. This would be the first time since its predecessor shown up in the GameBoy Color console.


    The bundle is said will be sold at around 2,980 Yen. In the bundle, it will include; a play mat, a damage counter, a playing manual-rule book, 3 starter packs (each containing 30 cards) from the Pokemon Black and White (Generation 5 Series), and a tutorial in the form of a Pokemon Trading Card : Asobikata DS cartridge, as well as potentially some other undisclosed items.

    The 3 starter packs are; Green Tornado, Blue Assault, and Red Frenzy. Serperior, Musharna and Sawbuck are some of the Pokemons that will be part of the Green Tornado pack which are of Nature ability. Galvantula and Basculin will be part of the Blue Assault pack with Water or Ice ability, while Emboar, Tepig, and Stoutland will be part of the Red Frenzy pack with Fire or Dark ability. Of cause there are other packs based on the various Pokemon ability group such as Pychic, Lightning, etc. each sold separately.

    Behind each deck box pack is a redeem code, which you can enter into the Pokemon TCG Online ( to play the same deck online against other TCG players across the globe; to log in you need to enter the same username and password as your Pokemon Dream World account if you already have one, or make a new one.

    Talking about the DS cartridge tutorial version of the game; the name Pokemon Trading Card: Asobikata DS literally when translated means "How to Play Pokemon Trading Card". In it will contain playable digital version of the cards, and shall act as an interactive tutorial that will allow you to play against the CPU/AI compared to the traditional DVD/VCD video demo of the past version. Also the DS cartridge will support download play features and allow you to freely share copies of the game. It also act as a digital rule reference, as well as provide quiz/trivia to enhance your knowledge on this game. Rumor has it that between 15 July to 8 September 2011, there will be a downloadable demo version of the tutorial which can be downloaded from Nintendo Zone.
