There’s an official announcement on the Pokémon Trading Game Card Pocket site that reads:

The Pokémon trading card game, itself based on the popular Nintendo video game franchise, launched in 1996 in Japan and later gained popularity in the United States, with more than 50 billion cards printed.
The business model, pioneered by American designer Richard Garfield in the 1990s, sees players battle head-to-head with decks of character cards aided by buying sealed booster packs containing various designs and with degrees of rarity.

In recent years, trading cards have gained greater attention, with rare cards in pristine condition attaining frothy valuations in the volatile market for alternative assets, the report reads and adds that digital collectible card games have also become well established with popular titles including versions of "Magic", "Yu-Gi-Oh!" and "Hearthstone", which is based on the "Warcraft" franchise.
