A Pokémon Trading Card Game Reality Show Could Be Happening Soon

The Pokémon Company is developing a reality show based on fans of the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Pokémon is a media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori that centers around fictional creatures called “Pokémon.” The franchise began as a pair of video games released for the Game Boy in 1996 in Japan, and it has since expanded to include numerous video games, trading card games, animated television shows and movies, manga, and other merchandise.

In the Pokémon world, humans known as “trainers” catch and train Pokémon for battles against other trainers. Each Pokémon has its own unique abilities and characteristics, and trainers use strategy and teamwork to win battles and become stronger. The franchise has become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of fans around the world and a wide variety of merchandise available.

Casting is now open for an “unscripted series involving the Pokémon TCG” with fans of all ages encouraged to apply, though it’s pretty unclear what the format of the show will be. Pokemon lovers can buy their favorite pokemon cards from a Pokémon TCG Store.

“From dedicated competitors in the Play! Pokémon programme and casual players battling after school with friends and family to collectors or general enthusiasts, we’re looking forward to spotlighting the stories of our diverse TCG fans,” said Barry Sams, vice president of The Pokémon TCG. “Anyone in the Los Angeles area with a Pokémon TCG story to tell is encouraged to apply.”

The casting call poster reveals a little more about the show’s premise, as it states that “whether you are trying to learn the Pokémon TCG to connect with your loved ones, hone your TCG skills to get to the next level, or are already a competitive person, we would like to hear how a Pokémon TCG expert can help you.”
The show may therefore be about partnering professional Pokémon card players with random members of the community in a zero to hero format. Nothing is confirmed at the moment however, and we’ll likely just have to wait until The Pokémon Company reveals more itself.
Pokémon cards continue to grow in popularity 25 years after the original set was released, as evidenced, among other things, by the number of people trying to steal them. An independent gaming store in Minnesota reportedly had around $250,000 worth of Pokémon merchandise stolen in February while in March a man was arrested in Tokyo for allegedly launching a literal heist in order to steal the treasured cards.Also in March, a Georgia man didn’t steal Pokémon cards directly but instead misused money from the government to buy one, using a COVID-19 relief payment to buy a rare, shiny Charizard.
