CGRundertow POKEMON TRADING CARD GAME for Game Boy Color Video Game Review

Pokémon Trading Card Game review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Pokémon Trading Card Game for Game Boy Color.

I wanna be the very best, at flopping cards on a table until Pokémon happens and I win. But every time I try to play actual people, they stomp all over me with their 6-Corners and Mewtwo EXes and whatnot. I long for a more simple time, when there were only three sets, and a big green Venusaur deck could just walk over anything and everything. This is that more simple time, compacted onto a respectable GBC edition.

This video review features video gameplay footage of Pokémon Trading Card Game for Game Boy Color and audio commentary from Classic Game Room’s TJ.

I used to be addicted to this game, but the data would often erase itself when I didn’t play it for months…

Verma says:

This game is so god damn awesome! says:

why doesn’t a sequel exist the new cards have introduced a ton of new mechanics?

A88mph says:

yes, but why do something senceable when you can make a game on the Pay-to-win model? 🙁

GrudgeEVO says:

ArtilleryCrusader says:

TGC Online getting out of beta? Its been in beta since like 2010 hasn’t it? And they keep saying they’ll allow people to pay real money for virtual cards but for now only Canada can for some unknown reason.

You can always play TGC Online or Tabletop simulator with neither of you using Ex Cards ofc.

DragnSly says:

this game has some of the best music of the era.

Gaming Howto says:

0:39 Exactly- as Michael McGehee of the Chicago Tribune stated, “[b]ecause all it has is a single-player mode, even the most devoted fans will get bored with it.”

Chris Pacheco says:

Can someone PLEASE tell me how to save in this game?

William Murphy says:

Fun little game. Taught me how to play in half an hour when reading the rulebook at the time made no sense to me. Seeing all the vintage card art is a blast from the past as well.
