Here’s a preview of my review for the Pokemon Trading Card Game:

I remember when I was child, my stepfather at the time (who was not a great man) took me out to the store and told me I could have any Game Boy Game I wanted. Shocked by the sudden kindness in his heart (or so I thought), I grabbed the newest Pokemon game, this one. I later learned that he only got me a new game to keep my quiet about the new hunting rifle he bought directly after, but as a kid, I didn’t even notice because I was building decks and dueling with virtual Pokemon cards. I remember it even came with a limited edition Meowth card, one that you could only get in the game itself. It was holographic and the game was so good, I couldn’t even tell you what happened the rest of the day. At any rate, with Pokemon GO reigniting my love for Pokemon, I downloaded this bad boy from the 3DS Virtual Console. Having not played it in a good number of years, I was excited to get back into it. And I remembered (almost) instantly how great the game is. I beat it in a single day, about 8 or so hours.
