Does the pokemon card game still have potential to be profitable or do fans prefer games instead?
When I was growing up everyone wanted to collect all the cards to battle each other with, but with more and more kids using computers and other gaming consoles do they still want cards or just play the virtual games?
This would be an interesting thing to find out from others but I would assume having cards in hand to go play with each other would still happen instead of just battling each other on Nintendo DS or something similar. I am not saying that the videogames wouldn't take up most of the kids time but it seems the cards still hold a "possession" approach to their love of pokemon (something to hold with value).
While the cards are still being sold to this day, I'm not really sure the sales will be noticable in comparison to the video games. Not that it matters anyway, as there's Pokésaturation - too many Pokémon to know and collect, and too few people feeling the novelty and fun factor of the game any more. Pokémon players will soon get smart and stop buying them, turning to the games on Gamecube and the N64.
Too many Pokémon will just crash the market. Happened with the M.U.S.C.L.E and Skylanders figures, don't see why it can't happen with Pokémon if its popularity rises too high.
The Pokemon video games most certainly will continue to sell very well. However, the Pokemon cards will as well. There is quite a community out there, especially on sites like YouTube, for those who simply enjoy collecting all sorts of Pokemon cards from all different generations.
As kudos to Nintendo, I am very pleased to see them releasing "shiny" ultra rare versions of older familiar Pokemon like Blastoise and Charizard in the currently newest set "Black and White: Plasma Storm." It's absolutely true that there are more Pokemon that exist now than most people would ever care to know about. But for the die-hard fans (and the coming of a SIXTH generation) I can see Pokemon cards being valuable for quite a while to come!
