Take this tablet

It has been confirmed that The Pokémon Trading Card Game is making the leap to the iPad this year.

The news broke at the ongoing Pokémon World Championship when Josh Wittenkeller tweeted an image of the game in action on Apple's tablet device.


Kotaku has since received confirmation from The Pokémon Company that the game will launch later in 2014.

It marks the first time that The Pokémon Company has released a full game on iOS, and could give the popular card game Hearthstone some serious competition.

What are your thoughts on this move? Is it a clever way of gaining some additional profit from iOS, or does it mark the beginning of a shift away from Nintendo platforms? Share your feelings with a comment below.
