Pikachu and friends have been to the Spaceworld Fortune Teller to have their cards read, revealing the shape of things to come - a Pokemon card reader for the GBA.


Exact details of what's involved are a bit unsure (thanks yet again to pretty poor translations from Japanese promotional information) but the artwork above shows the card reader inserted into the GBA - presumably in to the Cartridge port and not the multi player port - and then Pokemon cards can be swiped through the reader.

Presumably the stats that are read from the card are then transferred in to the characters on the Game Boy Advance, and the more cards you swipe, the more powers your Pokemon friends get.

As soon as we get to hear more, or find a better way of translating the Japanese information into something slightly readable, we'll let you know.
