Pokémon Play It! is a Pokémon Trading Card Game-based computer game produced by Wizards of the Coast. It was usually bundled with card packs, given away at events or with magazines, a bonus on every copy of the Pokémon 4Ever DVD or otherwise distributed for free.

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. 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.

The 2nd version allowed the player to sign-in as a Pokémon learner trainer before entering the Advanced Challenges as a Pokémon Master learner trainer. It also allows the build of player's own Pokémon TCG card decks, and organize player's cards. Both versions included extras, the likes of which encompassed in-computer features and printable ones.

Both versions were released in the US and various European countries. In the US, version 1 was included with the Base 2 Beginners Pokémon Trading Card pack. In the UK, version 1 was available from Woolworths, who set up trading card days in store, while version two was available in gift boxes containing the limited edition Tempest deck. Version 2 was also included in Polish video games magazine "Play" from May 2001.
