Pokemanics of RetroCollect, you know who you are. ROM hackers have brought us a long overdue release that Nintendo should have delivered to us back in 2001. The sequel to the Pokemon Trading Card Game which graced the Game Boy Color known as Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team Great Rocket, has finally been fan translated.
If Pokemon fever didn't take control of you in the late nineties, the trading card game which conquered playgrounds was brought over the the Game Boy Color, offering a much cheaper alternative to buying booster packs at £2.50 a pop. The game featured the first three trading card sets in their entirety which could be enjoyed both in story mode or via a link cable if another fellow digital collector be near by.
The sequel to the Game Boy Color game in 2001, also known as Pokémon Card GB2: Great Rocket-Dan Sanjō! in Japan, brought along a digital version of the fourth set of cards, Team Rocket, alongside exclusive cards only found in Japanese vending machines. Sadly though, this later release was never seen outside of Japan.
A ROM hacker known as Artemis251 has finally finished a complete fan translation patch of the game, after several attempts over the last few years have been abolished due to interest dying out.

As usual, to enjoy this fan translation patch you will need to have an original ROM file of the game in which you can apply this patch to. Full instructions on how to patch this ROM can be found within the download, or you can refer to this handy ROM patching guide on YouTube.
