Nintendo have revealed a last-minute Pokemon Sword and Shield trailer and finally, we can see two new species in their natural habitat. 

The highly anticipated games are expected to be released on November 15, just days after this trailer was added to Nintendo’s Japanese YouTube channel. 

A flood of leaked information has been revealed ahead of the launch, confirming a number of different entrants to the Gen 8 Pokedex, including a fresh evolution for Mr. Mime – which, of course, is an original from the franchise’s famed class of 1996.

Mr. Rime, as the new evolution is known, is one of the two fresh faces to have appeared in the promotional video, but that’s not all. Another evolution for a Galar Region form is also included in the trailer. 

After being added in Gen 5, Yamask will look slightly different from its normal form when found in this region. Leaks had previously uncovered Yamask and its evolved version, Runerigus, but finally, it’s been included in one of the official trailers for all to see. 

Those who saw some of the leaks from November 2, which revealed not only post-game content for Sword and Shield, but much of the Pokedex as well, won’t be too surprised to see just how these two species look. 

Yamask is not the only Pokemon from previous generations to have been given a fresh look in these games, either, with a raft of new Galar Region forms included in the leaks as well – with the likes of Weezing and Zigzagoon already confirmed. 

Nintendo have since moved to shut down a number of videos and posts online which published such leaked content, meaning much of it can no longer be found. However, now they have revealed a couple from the leaks and they look insane. 

Whether or not we’ll be treated to even more trailers ahead of the November 15 launch, be it on the English or Japanese YouTube accounts from Nintendo, remains to be seen. This new video, though, was very interesting indeed.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

Other famous Pokemon collectors took notice of the insane set.

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
