Pokemon Trading Card Game and Pokemon Stadium 2 are landing on Nintendo Switch Online today. The news was just announced during the latest Pokemon Presents presentation moments ago.

Remember that Game Boy games are accessible to all Nintendo Switch Online members. A membership to the Expansion Pack tier is not needed. However, you will indeed need that Expansion Pack subscription in order to access Pokemon Stadium 2.

Pokemon TCG Card Dex has gotten an update to Version 1.6.18770.  The update should be available for all devices. Check out the patch notes for this update here:

– Addressed app not loading on iOS 13 in some territories
– Updated Privacy Notice

The Pokemon Company has officially announced a new partnership with General Mills that will have sets of Pokemon Trading Card Game cards available in select boxes of Big G Cereals.

Up until March 30th, fans can find a pack of three Pokemon TCG cards included within specially marked boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs, Trix, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs.

Each pack is slated to include two common cards and one of four special foil cards, all featuring Pokemon who first appeared in the Kanto region. The foil cards will highlight either Pikachu, Eevee, Charmander, or Cubone. However, select boxes purchased at Walmart may include Bulbasaur as a fifth foil card option. There are 13 different cards to be included in the promotion total.



Nintendo has been in the mobile game market for a while now and has released several games, with more on the way. According to the Wall Street Journal, one of Nintendo’s next mobile games will be one based on The Legend of Zelda. Supposedly, “people familiar with the matter” said that a Zelda mobile game would be released sometime after the Animal Crossing mobile game, which is apparently being released in the latter half of 2017, although the release timing and release order could still change. Neither Nintendo nor DeNA commented on the matter.

That’s not all, though – according to the Wall Street Journal, The Pokemon Company is planning to release a new Pokemon Trading Card Game app on mobile devices. This is peculiar since a Pokemon TCG app already exists and can be played on mobile games – Pokemon TCG Online has been around for a while and is still supported to this day.

As always, takes rumors like this with a grain of salt. While the WSJ is usually fairly reliable when it comes to their sources and a Zelda mobile game isn’t exactly a far-fetched idea, this is far from an official confirmation. Thankfully, E3 is right around the corner, so we might hear more about either of these rumored games in a couple of weeks.

A new Virtual Console title is finally coming to the Japanese 3DS Virtual Console next week. Pokemon Trading Card Game will be available on December 24 for 617 yen. This is particularly notable since Japan hasn’t received any new 3DS VC games since May.

Update: It seems that this may not be the case after all:

Pokemon Trading Card Game is out in all European territories today, but it’s only playable in English. It’s a bit of an odd move considering that the original title offered five different languages. This might make playing through Pokemon Trading Card Game a bit difficult for non-English speakers.

Thanks to Ares for the tip.
