"Star Wars" toys and possible rising competition for Pokemon cards.


I just wanted to take issue with this anaylists statement. What Hasbro has done is to buy an exclusive on the ccg market. No one can compete with pokemon card game, because the company (Wizards of the Coast) that Hasbro bought,not only created the CCG market (customizable card games) but they get royalties from anyone making any other kind of ccg games. Kids are not going to switch from Pokemon to something else that easy. Also Hasbro has bought the ability to make CCG games for every other license they own in the future... What will be the next Pokemon? Well whatever it is Hasbro will be selling it.
