It's a Patent, nothing says it's confirmed to actually be for Pokemon on the switch.

princejb134537d ago

a card game lol
yup we asked for this nintendo *sarcasm*

It's just a patent, relax people.

They should still be focusing their efforts and budget on a Xenoblade-scale Pokemon experience.

It sucks, but I don't think adults are their core targeted audience for Pokemon, as much as I've wanted that exact thing.

THEY clearly said.
Card game is not a core Pokemon game.

Prince_TFK537d ago

I seriously hope the new Pokémon game isn’t card-based. That would be horrible lol

FuckN4G_TrashSite537d ago

They clearly said last year that is was a Core RPG Pokemon game.
Game Freak only do the main Pokemon games.

This is probably for a separate Pokemon CCG on Switch, rather than the mainline game that's coming.
