The Pokémon Trading Card Game is coming to iPad

Your move, Hearthstone.

The Pokémon Trading Card Game is coming to iPad later this year.

The digital version of the oldschool physical card game has been available online for some time, but the upcoming iPad version made its debut at the Pokémon World Championship this weekend where Pokémon enthusiast Josh Wittenkeller snapped a picture of it on Twitter.

This marks The Pokémon Company's first full game on an iOS device. Previously, the brand had only featured non-gaming apps on the platform.

A Pokémon Company representative has since confirmed to Kotaku that the iPad trading card game is slated for a 2014 release.
