Default Pokémon TCG online

Anybody else play this? You just have to register at Pokemon.com and then download the game at the TCG site. It's a really fun way to get into the TCG without spending money on cards. Although you can spend money to get more decks and boosters if you want, but personally I haven't bothered. You can earn trainer tokens to get more cards too (which doesn't cost real-life money), but obviously at a much slower rate.

Unfortunately, it is very slow to run and does have glitches, just to warn you.

I got addicted to it about a month ago. My username there is Charnauk.

I played it for a while but quickly got bored of it. I guess it's because I don't find it fun when you're not actually physically playing with someone sitting across from you.

It's certainly a good idea though. I couldn't for the life of me remember what the rules of the TCG from when I was younger (especially considering I never actually played it when I was younger, despite having loads of cards), so it taught me the basics quite well.

Wait, I looked around and I didn't see the button to press to get new cards with tokens. How do you do that?

Oh man, the last time I played a face to face game was with my cousin when I was eight or nine. I definitely wouldn't have anyone interested in playing cards with me nowadays, but collecting the real-life cards isn't as fun as when you're a kid. They're too expensive and sorting out over 500 cards is a nuisance.

I was hoping they would have released a sequel to the TCG game for the game boy colour, but this is even better. I forgot how pretty the card art is.

You go to the shop, and any card or deck with the yellow coin icon beside it is buyable with tokens.
