Limited info, but I can't help but wish it had "more" going for it!

Would Pokémon be good if it was done in a Keyforge style? I'm genuinely curious as I haven't played either game.

I commented below but it looks like this game will be very similar to the Pokemon Card Game from the early 2000's.

yeah, i was thinking it may be time for Pokemon to try something different

I'm thinking this is going to be an opportunity for my daughter to pay more games.  She likes the Pokemon show.

It looks like each Pokémon has there own deck, so possibly it will be like #Sentinels of the Multiverse but possibly combining two or three or more mini decks to form your team. Could imagine that being an 'easier' deck building mechanic than something like magic and so would be easy for kids to grasp but still leave room for some interesting combos. 

Of course it could be nothing like that, who knows!

Interested to see where this goes. I used to play the card game as a youngster (and game boy games, obviously), so my interest is definitely piqued.

I loved the Card Game!  I actually haven't played any of the Video Games though.  Although, once I finally get a Switch my daughter really really wants to pick up a Pokemon game so I may end up playing one soon.

Those games are addicting haha I haven't heard much about the Switch version of Pokemon, but I suspect it's just as good as the others.

This looks like a no-brainer for them to make and also potentially quite fun.

Oh man.  I will have to check this out.  When I was in High School there was a Pokemon Deck Building game that was kind of like Magic lite.  I remember my buddy and I played it all the time.  If I went back to the the root (pun intended) of getting into the hobby I'm sure it started there.  But that was many moons ago.

I wonder if this is just a gateway into the CCG. If that's the case, it's a pass for sure. If it's its own thing, then maybe.

I can imagine them trying for a #Marvel Champions: The Card Game type of thing, although whether they will be able to recreate that level of buy-in from people is an entirely different matter.
