The Pokemon Trading Card Game has been around for well over a decade, quickly becoming a major force in the card gaming world. We found out last month that The Pokemon Company would take the next major step in the series' evolution by coming to iPad. The digital version now has a release date: tomorrow!

The iPad version of the game will play similarly to its PC counterpart. Just as in that version, it will be free to play with new users getting to start from four different free online decks. New booster packs and theme decks can be purchased with in-game Trainer Tokens, while trainers looking for a specific card can trade with others online.

The iPad version of the Pokemon TCG will feature cross-save compatibility with the PC version. New cards will continue to be released on a regular basis. For more, check out the trailer below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Great news, Pokémon TCG on PC is great fun! It will probably be even better on iPad.
