Nintendo started in the 19th century as a hanafuda maker. To this day, Nintendo still makes hanafuda cards in Japan. But is it making these Pokémon hanafuda cards?
There are Nintendo, Pokémon, and Game Freak copyrights at the bottom, so I'm assuming Nintendo is making these cards. At least, I hope it is.
