The official website for the highly anticipated Pokemon Trading Figure Game (TFG) has announced that the game will be release in North America on August 15th. The game was released in Australia earlier this year.

Quoted from the Go-Pokemon website: "A brand new game from the creators of the Pokemon Trading Card Game, the Pokemon Trading Figure Game (TFG) lets you play with amazing new collectible figures of your favorite Pokemon!

Pokemon TFG - Charizard. Click for full size imageNext Quest, the first expansion of this incredibly cool game, will include more than 40 unique, high-quality figures. Each features an exciting new spinning mechanic that adds real action to your battles. It's easy to learn, and you'll be ready to battle in minutes.

You spin to see if you can knock out your opponent's Pokemon and send them back to the Pokemon Center. Play Trainer cards to give your Pokemon in the field an extra advantage. And reach your opponent's Goal first to prove you're a true Pokemon Master!"

Below is a frequently asked question list about the trading card game from the official site.

Who developed the Pokemon Trading Figure Game, and how long did it take?
The Pokemon Trading Figure Game (TFG) was designed by Mr. Tsunekaz Ishihara, a general producer for Pokemon and one of the designers of the popular trading card game (TCG), and by Mr. Koichi Oyama and Mr.Masayuki Miura. They spent the last few years preparing the game’s look and feel to ensure the best possible collectible trading figure game.

Why did we decide to make this game?
Collectors and players alike have been asking for a Pokemon collectible figure game for a long time; we’re just now able to give them a game that we feel meets Pokemon’s standards of collectibility and gameplay.

What’s cool or unique about this game?
The game comes with an awesome spinning mechanic for battles that players are going to love. It makes every battle different and provides many different combinations of Pokemon to build a team. The game is also extremely easy to learn, so players will be battling in minutes!

How many Pokemon are in the initial release?
The first release has more than 40 figures, including some favorites like Pikachu and Charizard. We also have special Trainer figures.

What are the similarities or differences between the TFG and the TCG and the video game?
In each game, players can experience the strategies that come from training rare and powerful Pokemon that have a wide variety of attacks. The TFG takes the video game and the TCG to the next level by adding three-dimensional Pokemon to the battle--it really brings the Pokemon to life!

Who makes the figures?
Our figures are all sculpted by Kaiyodo Co. Ltd., of Japan, who have been making excellent models for over 40 years.

What kind of game is it?
It comes with a playmat and lots of figures--so, we see it as a collectible figure game, one that will keep growing with the release of expansions in the future. We suspect players will collect and display the figures almost as much as they battle with them!

Obviously this is a big new game for Pokemon fans and I know a lot of us here in North America have been awaiting its announcement. These are excellent figures and are a must for the Pokemon gamer and collector. For more information and pictures about the TFG, you can visit the links below.
