The Pokemon Trading Card game (PTG) has been quite popular for a long time, and it's about time it is brought to BYOND. The duel system is inspired by Kajika's Duel Monsters Online (DMO), where you can watch other people duel live, and let the system handle all the rules, so you don't need to worry about anything but playing the game.

Beta Release

The Pokemon Trading Card Game for BYOND is now in public Beta testing! This means there are likely to be many minor glitches, and the interface and setup of how the game looks is destined to change based on feedback and functionality. Please report anything that seems like an error, including card descriptions, attacks, etc, either via the in-game Bug Report button, or on the forums.

Thanks for helping test and improve the game!

Kaamos' note: One of my main goals is streamlining the interface for accessability and design - Any problems or ideas on how to make your playing as smooth as possible would be greatly appreciated

If you liked the original game PED, come take a look at PUO which is a brand new and original Pokemon Game coming to Byond. Cart12 and Myself are working together with a few other well known Pokemon players to bring this game to byond (since Pokemon has been in the dark on byond for quite a while). Fan/Favorite the hub and try out the Demo which you can download on the hub!

Hello, I have been playing the game and loving it. The using victory points to buy cards is a good feature. Games need to have some sorta reward system to maintain a good player-base. People who argue that older players will have an advantage to newer players well yes. The NPCs are there so players can train on also if you haven't noticed the loser get points also. By making a goal when players build their dream deck they will be more accomplished.

Also, with help of your friends you can trade for the cards you may need and the lack every card unlocked makes it so you don't have every player running similar decks since some skilled deck builders will shine and then everyone will copy them. I saw it happen on DMO so many times. Keep up the good work on this game love it.
