If you like Pokemon game remasters then you could be in luck. Another leak has seemingly revealed that some form of remaster(s) are coming to the franchise soon.

The reliable nintendalerts Twitter account shared the following (translated): “And to think that people complain about the [Mario] remasters, when they see the Pokémon thing that’s coming, they’re going to complain [even more].”

According to Centro Pokemon Leaks, a reliable source of information themselves, the nintendalerts account has a good track record when it comes to Nintendo.

What Pokemon remaster?!

The leak itself is frustratingly coy. They obviously infer some type of remaster is coming but don’t address it directly.

It isn’t clear whether the vagueness is intentional or that they’re hinting at information they have been told to keep quiet. “It’s not specified whether this could be a game, expansion, collection or anything classic related,” Centro Pokemon Leaks added in a subsequent tweet.

With Crown Tundra still to come in 2020, it’s unlikely we’ll get an announcement about a new Pokemon game until after it is released. There had been many rumors of a return to the Sinnoh region in 2020 but as the year passes this becomes less and less likely.

That doesn’t mean a Pokemon Diamond/Pearl remake isn’t coming, though. Another rumor even claimed we’ll be getting another Sinnoh game but it won’t be a Diamond and Pearl remaster.

2021 will almost certainly bring a brand new game and if it isn’t a Gen 4 remaster, then a sequel to the popular Pokemon Let’s Go game could be next. It is expected, if it does materialize, to be based on the Johto region and more specifically the original Gold and Silver games.

However, this leak could refer to something else entirely. It would certainly be out of character, but maybe some form of remastered collection could be on the horizon.

It’s looking like 2021 could be a big year for Pokemon fans. After all, it is the franchise’s 25th anniversary!

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
