POKÉMON TRADING CARD GAME: BATTLE ACADEMY Streamlines And Simplifies The Collectible Card Game

POKÉMON TRADING CARD GAME: BATTLE ACADEMY Streamlines And Simplifies The Collectible Card Game

Fans of the long-admired Pokémon Trading Card Game will definitely want to check out the upcoming release of Pokémon Battle Academy, which is similar to the popular game, yet streamlined and simplified.

It looks like the days of holographic Charizards, Pokémon trading, and card collecting aren't quite behind us yet. On the contrary, a new endeavor from the Pokémon Company shows that their intention is quite the opposite.

Pokémon Trading Card Game: Battle Academy is an upcoming venture from the company in the hopes of reaching wider and potentially younger audiences. By simplifying the rules and the cards allowed, players who are brand new to the game will have no trouble learning the ropes. 

As can be seen in the images below, the focus seems to be on Generation I, or rather, the creatures from the video games Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. Popular pocket monsters such as Charizard, Pikachu, and Mewtwo are brandished on the cover, which should come as no surprise as they are three of the most recognizable creatures in the game and have high marketability.

The mobile game Pokémon Go has proven that fans exist in all shapes and sizes and that many more players are able to enjoy the fantasy world when things are simplified. Even the console titles Pokémon Let's Go! Pikachu and Pokémon Let's Go! Eevee feature easier controls that appeal to younger and newer audiences. It's likely that Pokémon Trading Game: Battle Academy won't be the last.
