The blandly titled, but to the point Pokémon Trading Card Game is now available to our friends up north.

That's right - if you have an iPad and live in Canada, you now have access to the currently region-locked soft launch of the official Pokémon digital card battler. iPad only, for now.

The Pokémon Trading Card Game is a free to play card battler based on the physical Pokémon card game.

You can earn or buy booster packs, build your own deck, customize your card box, and play against AI or other Pokémon trainers.

Download Pokémon Trading Card Game on the Canadian App Store here.

Not in Canada? Start playing the PC or Mac version here, for free. Your card collection and custom decks will save to your unique Pokémon Trainer Club account, so your game will remain consistent between desktop and mobile.
