This Pokémon Arcade Looks Awesome.

From the ever-growing list of rad shit that Japan gets and doesn’t share with the rest of the world comes Pokémon Tretta, an arcade game from Marvelous AQL. The game let’s you hunt for Pokémon on engage in 3-on-3 battles. When you catch a Pokémon, you’re given a Tretta — a real-world hunk of plastic with the caught Pokémon’s picture on it to collect and trade with friends. Trettas can then be scanned by the game to use in battle.

Pokémon Tretta drops in Japan this July. Accessories like Tretta cases from Tomy will be released shortly after.

There are no words for the amount of jealousy and loathing currently coursing through my veins.
