    If this was “hockey cards” and those said hockey card collections were used as a “fantasy league” style scoring system that I can join with either friends (or other fans around the globe) I’d be all ears. I’m pretty sure thats coming though because I tweeted the idea to Upper Deck and they favourited my tweet. Surely their social media team has taken this to the very top…

    I don’t think you quite grasp the ramifications this has. NINTENDO is actively developing a full fledged game for iOS devices. This is bigger than Pokemon (if that’s even possible).
