The Potential Of Pokémon: What Nintendo Could Do With NFC

GR: The moment it was revealed that the Wii U GamePad would support near-field communication, I think just about every Pokémon fan's mind started racing at the possibilities of what Nintendo might be planning with their popular "Pocket Monsters" franchise. Anyone who has followed the game industry for some time is well-aware of the unpredictability of the Big N, so attempting to guess what they'll do is about a futile as trying to win the lottery. Fortunately for you, that's not going to stop me from providing you with my two cents. (Nintendo, Pokemon, Wii U)

I think the figurines, while nice to look at, would be going overboard. There are way too many Pokemon now to justify it. However, I can imagine thick playing cards with chips inside.

Agreed. The cards are a much more probable option.

Definitely. If be totally surprised by figures, though I wouldn't be surprised by this business move.

It would be cool as long as you didn't have to buy a figure for each and every Pokemon.

I couldn't imagine them requiring you to purchase all of them - if that's what you mean.

I hope they implement connectivity with Google Wallet as that's getting very popular now. A simple touch with my Android phone and I can pay for stuff in stores, as well as transmit videos, photos, web pages, etc. in a blip to something else NFC enabled.

I kinda hope they do something cool but not horribly expensive with the Pokemon franchise and Wii-U.
