With pressure from shareholders to consider mobile games, Nintendo has been exploring how it could bring its games to smartphone and tablet devices.

Now The Pokemon Company, the division of Nintendo that handles the Pokemon brand, has announced a tablet version of The Pokemon Trading Card Game. The Trading Card Game is already available for PC and Mac.

It's worth noting that while The Pokemon Company is a subsidiary of Nintendo, it does operate to a large extent autonomously from its parent company, and its strategies do not necessarily imply anything about the platform holder's strategy at large.

As spotted by YouTuber Josh Wittenkeller, and later confirmed by The Pokemon Company to Polygon, a version of The Pokemon Trading Card Game is coming to iPad.

This isn't the first app that The Pokemon Company has published on the App Store -- last year the company published Pokemon TV for iOS -- but it is the first video game that the company will publish for mobile.

The Nintendo-owned company has not yet said when the game is due to launch for iOS.
