Pokémon Play It! is a game that came from certain classic Pokémon Trading Card Game Card packs (that were made by Wizards of the Coast, a division of Hasbro who held the licensing rights until 2002, when Nintendo took over) for the PC. In the first version, the player has to learn how to play the Pokémon TCG (Trading Card Game) in any way he likes, before he would decide to battle a CPU-controlled girl named Julie. However, there were four virtual 30-card packs available. Two are hidden and revealed when the word "fire" is typed during the title screen or when Julie starts to talk. This version is included with the Base 2 Beginners Pokémon Trading Card pack.
