TFG Canceled

Post by Kingdra on Wed Jun 03, 2009 6:06 am

3rd update today!

The Trading Figure Game section on the Go-Pokemon website completely vanished yesterday, sparking fan speculation that the game has finally been discontinued by the Pokemon Company.

The second TFG set, Groundbreakers, was supposed to see a widespread release in stores last year but was delayed several times. The last release date for the set was supposedly March 31st but never happened. Earlier in 2008, a third TFG set was also announced by TPCi, but it will probably never see the light of day now.

Due to the constant delays and the fact that a new set has not been released in ages, it is probably safe to assume that either the TFG has been discontinued completely or put on an indefinite hold. TPCi most likely wants to focus their time and effort on the TCG and video game's organized play rather than an unsupported spin-off game.



Here is a note from the author that later says that it is canceled:

The Pokémon Company International has no plans for the release of future sets of the Pokémon Trading Figure Game (TFG). Thank you for your support of the Pokémon TFG, we hope you continue to have fun playing the game, as well as other Pokémon products.

Thank you,
Dave Schwimmer
