In August we got a glimpse of the upcoming Pokemon trading card game for iPad in what would be the first official Pokemon game for Apple’s platform. Tonight the app became available on the App Store.
The game features both a single-player mode in which you play against a computer as well as an online version that allows you to challenge other players as well as a full deck management system.
You can grab Pokemon TCG for free on any iPad that has a Retina display (non-Retina models aren’t supported). The App Store description is below:

Not really a fan of TCGs. Even if they released one of their older versions of Pokemon on iOS I bet Nintendo would make a killing. I wouldn’t mind paying $.99 or even $1.99 for a nice throwback to my younger days.
All the links in the article lead me to the Pokemon TV App. Is the TGC App not launched yet?
All of these links lead to the TGC app… I don’t even know what the Pokemon TV app. Certainly didn’t include any links to it. Maybe you’re in a country where it’s not available, or there’s an App Store bug?
Great :) , waiting for pikachu :’)
What happens if you try to play it on the first gen iPad Mini?
