A Pokemon fan went viral when they cleverly re-created every Professor from all eight generations in The Sims 4. The player’s creative post wowed the community.

Despite making its debut in 1995, Pokemon has never been more popular. 24 years on, the beloved Nintendo franchise has incredibly made it to its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield in 2019.

To celebrate the game’s entire history, a talented player used The Sims 4 to re-create each title’s Professor in the EA title. The fan’s project truly puts into perspective how unique and varied each character is.

Reddit user ‘PrincessPinkmon’ made the creative post on May 20. The fan used Electronic Arts’ The Sims 4 character creator to bring the RPG’s iconic Professors into the social simulation title.

While the franchise has had Professors introduced into spin-offs like Pokemon GO or Masters, the player opted to use the mainline releases and re-made characters from all eight generations.

Seeing each character brought to life in a more realistic art style is incredibly interesting, while also giving Trainers an overview of the different design choices developer Game Freak went with in each release.

The submission went viral, and at the time of writing has over 10k upvotes. Pinkmon also has a YouTube channel where they show how they made each design. The video also includes bonus photos that show each Sims-style Professor with their Pokemon.

This isn’t the first time the creative fan has merged the two popular titles. Last month, the user also re-created Sword & Shield’s male and female protagonist in The Sims 4 as well.

Pokemon continues to be one of Nintendo’s top selling properties. In 2019, it was announced that the lovable RPG was the highest grossing media franchise of all time, pulling in billions of dollars across their games and merchandise.

Even Sword & Shield is on track to becoming the third highest selling game in the whole series, which is proof that the addictive ‘Catch ‘Em All’ mechanic still has its hooks in players.

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?”

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.
