Pokemon Let’s Go Release Date

Pokemon Let’s Go will launch worldwide on the Nintendo Switch on November 16. Interestingly, it is only the third Pokemon game to have a release date of the same day across the world.

The two previous Pokemon games to do this were Pokemon X and Y, and Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Pokemon Let’s Go’s release date was announced on May 30.

Furthermore, the Pokemon Let’s Go trailer has been watched on the official Pokemon Twitter page nearly three million times.

Pokemon on Nintendo Switch

Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee, is the franchise’s first appearance on the Nintendo Switch. The last game, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, was released last November on the Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo Switch Controller

Not only will the Nintendo Switch offer more powerful hardware but it also enhances, and alters, how the game is controlled.

The Nintendo Switch Joycons change the way Pokemon are captured. Rather than using traditional buttons, the motion feature is used to capture Pokemon. The two Joycons will also be used for co-operative play.

An incredible, complete set of 1999 first-edition Pokemon cards is available for auction – and it’s looking like it could sell for more than half a million dollars when it’s all said and done.

The complete set is made up entirely of PSA 10s, the best possible grade one can give to a card, meaning these are in tip-top condition.

According to Goldin Auctions, who is hosting the bid, the collection includes four extremely sought-after Charizard cards. For many, Charizard is considered the holy grail of Pokemon cards.

So far, five people have put in the funds necessary to bid on the collection in two weeks. If you want to join in, you’re going to need some deep pockets – the minimum bid starts at $125,000.

Charizard is one of the rarest Pokemon cards.

The fact that there are four Charizards alone in the collection is nothing to scoff at, and could very well be the cherry on top of the pristine PSA 10 collection.

Just back in October of 2020, rapper Logic purchased the 1st Edition card for just over $226,000. But that was then, and this is now.

Goldin Auctions states they “just sold an SGC Gold Label Pristine 10 ‘1 of 1’ example of the Charizard for nearly $400,000 in their December Holiday Auction.”

Booster boxes can sell for hundreds of thousands.

While the card alone can sell for a ridiculous amount, booster box prices have also seen their value rise.

As the TGC community has continued to grow, plenty of YouTubers and Twitch stars have started spending a lot of money on booster boxes from the 90s. The end result is that costs have skyrocketed.

Earlier in December, a booster box from Heritage Auctions sold for a whopping $408,000.

Given the insanity of the current lot and just how many perfect condition cards are included, we could be seeing a brand new Pokemon record once the bidding wraps up. The only question is: Will it ever reach the million-dollar mark? We’ll have to see what 2021 has in store.
