Tutorial - How to backup Pokemon TCG Online for Android:
(Or just go to page 5 of this thread)
I personally did this on my Galaxy Note 5 (Verizon). The app works flawlessly except for one minor issue.
1> The S-Pen does not work to click buttons in the game, however works fine to drag and drop, say energy or a trainer card, into the board. I must use my finger to click on buttons instead of my S-Pen.
The reason the S-Pen does not work as intended is because this version of the app does not have the S-Pen SDK implemented as they never intended you to use it on a device with an S-Pen. This issue will likely never get fixed as they seem to want to keep the game on Tablet Devices only.
While I personally do not understand why they do not want us playing on our Android Phones, that doesn't make it impossible if you know what to do. The app works fine on my Galaxy Note 5, despite that one issue. If the app works fine on Android Phones, then there should be no reason to prevent us from installing it on them. BTW, if you have one of those general use stylus like you can get for cheap on amazon, those will work fine as they emulator your finger's touch. The S-Pen, a Wacom device, communicates directly to the phone and because the app doesn't know how to process the S-Pen as an input device, you cannot click on buttons within the app. I hope this clears things up for anyone curious.
Nintendo, Pokemon, if you are listening, please listen to your fans. None of this should be necessary for the end user just to play your game, especially when it already works without issue. I grew up playing your game and it just feels like I've been slapped in the face by you guys. It hurts. T.T
I am posting this in good faith that it will convince them to release the app for Android Phones.
Oh and guys, be a good sport and report bugs you find on the Android Phones. Otherwise we will never get anywhere.
