Pokemon is literally the most successful media franchise of all time, pulling in over $92 billion in revenue since its creation in 1995. Its games, trading cards, movies, and more have been a hit with millions worldwide as they’ve fallen in love with the Catch ‘Em All mechanics and adorable creatures.

On June 11, the apparel company dropped the preview for the collaboration. It includes 33 items, including dresses, bomber jackets, pants, overalls, shorts, and more, meaning if you have the cash, you’re buying a whole new Pokemon-themed wardrobe.

According to the clothing brand’s website, preorders for the collection go live at 7AM AEST on June 16 – that’s 2PM PST / 5PM PST / 9PM UTC on June 15, so set your alarm and get ready to go HAM on the refresh browser button.

Depending on what you buy, prices range from $40.77 USD to $109.88. Our personal favorites, and no doubt many others’ top picks as well, are the Pikachu and Meowth bomber jackets at $96.06. If you ever wanted to look like Ash or Team Rocket in real life, now’s your chance.

As the collection is only opening up for preorders, orders won’t ship straight away. According to the clothing details section, BlackMilk will aim to ship all orders by July 7, so expect to receive your new threads in the later half of the month if you’re not in Australia.

A YouTuber revealed that he was able to afford and buy his dream car worth up to $200k just by buying, selling, and covering Pokemon cards – yes, you read that right!

Although the Pokemon TCG made its debut decades ago in 1997, the Nintendo collectibles have seen an absolute explosion in popularity in 2020. Items once traded by children on school playgrounds for practically nothing can now sell for as much as a house.

Dedicated fans that have been covering the hobby for years such as Australian YouTuber Michael ‘UnlistedLeaf’ Anderson have had their passion rewarded with the Trading Card Game’s recent attention. So much so that the content creator was able to buy a luxury car.

While many popular entertainers have been swept up by the Pokemon card craze that has hit in 2020, YouTubers like Unlisted Leaf have been making videos about the hobby since 2013. On December 4, the content creator revealed that he was able to buy his dream car – a Audi R8 V10 Plus – due his love of the Nintendo RPG.

“It is insane to me that years down the line I am able to get one,” he said. “The craziest part about this whole situation is that I really bought this car with, like, Pokemon cards. If we really boil it down.” The entertainer, who also goes by ‘Ando’, then clarified that he didn’t get any money from his parents or a side job – it was purely from covering the Pokemon collectibles.

“It is 110% all with Pokemon cards. That’s the truth. I literally have been making videos around Pokemon cards for about eight years now. I’ve been collecting Pokemon cards for eight years and like selling a few. Then like I buy a lot. Then I sell a couple more,” the Nintendo fan explained.

UnlistedLeaf revealed that Pokemon cards’ recent explosion in value and popularity also played a hand in being able to afford the luxury vehicle. “Especially with the crazy Pokemon card boom recently, I was able to purchase this car.” he revealed, before he thanked his fans for sticking with him as he covered the Nintendo hobby for eight years.

There is no telling if the craze surrounding the TCG will die down anytime soon. With the Japanese franchise gearing up to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021, the sky is the limit. Passionate fans who have dedicated their lives to Trading Card Game are finally starting to reap the rewards.
