    As a big fan of the pokemon games i would have to think that its due to popularity. i don't think the cards sell as well as they used to anymore and not many are interested in it. however, if they were to make one for the ds and do online play like the yugioh games i would be all over that lol

    I assume one of the reasons they aren't making a new Pokemon TCG on the DS is that last time they did it back on the gameboy the sales didn't do to well. In my opinion I think they want to keep their cards on the table and their pokemanz in they handhelds.

    Meh, the TCG was marketed as another way into the fad of Pokemon back in the day. Granted the card game was actually really good, but once the fad died down they couldn't bank on Pokemon's popularity to keep them up. Hell I used to see Pokemon cards everywhere. Nowadays they're not as present. It's definitely possible for them to make a new game and I'd definitely play it, but whether it would sell is different. Although I can't see how it would sell worse than those shitty Pokemon Ranger or Mystery Dungeon games they keep crapping out.

    Hopefully, provided space limits aren't too much on "3DSWare" and what not, they'll start released downloadable games for the TCG, or at least update the original.
