I had sent a tweet and Facebook update to the fan page about a week or two ago to see if there was any interest in the development of a Pokémon social networking site.
You may or may not have seen it…either way there appears to be decent support for said project.
Incase you are wondering, I am way too unskilled to pull off something like that and I am not creative enough come up with such an idea.
The brain behind this idea is my friend James. James had e-mailed me a few times about it and he happened to be in Philadelphia for a few days, so we met up for about an hour to discuss the idea.
The absolute coolest part of his idea is this, which I deem as:
James will be working on interactive software to that will integrate with the social networking site which will allow you to play the Pokémon TCG against anyone online.
It will be software designed around the Pokémon TCG, complete with images and a brain that knows all the rules and functions of the game.
Imagine something like the old Pokémon TCG game for Gameboy but now it’s online and updated.
Bye bye Apprentice and Redshark…
How You Can Help
James is going to be developing this from scratch, so what he needs is some feedback.
What kind of features do you want to see with this brand new gaming software? What improvements would you like to see made where Apprentice and Redshark have failed?
Any features you’d like to see for online play? An online league or tournaments perhaps?
This will be quite an endeavor and will not be completed until a number of months from now, but any suggestions you have are much appreciated, so please comment below!
P.S. James is a really awesome guy and is working on this for the whole Pokémon TCG community, so please give him some support. :)
