The rarity of some designs, like Mew, are leading some people to resell them for ridiculous amounts
Speculation is the order of the day and has always been present in the world of video games. Mythical consoles, specific accessories or classic titles are sold daily by all types of platforms for large amounts of money due to the great value that collectors give them, either due to the rarity or condition of the product itself. But what we never imagined is that the limit would be exceeded doing business with Pokémon sandwiches and Oreo cookies.
If we go to Ebay, we will find crowds of people reselling these products with the designs of the creatures of the popular saga of Nintendo. And, while it is true that it might seem normal that a certain group of people want to collect them in some way, what scares us is that we find some very specific Oreos with absolutely exorbitant prices. We speak for example of that of Mew, which reaches thousands of dollars at auction.
Mew is the most sought after because it appears less than the restWe have seen cases where the initial price started at $ 25,000 (plus a few more shipping from the United States), although one of them has already been auctioned for $ 13,300 that will end up being donated to charity. This is mainly due to the rarity of these designs, which total 16. The first generation Legendary Pokémon is the most sought after of those chosen precisely because appears much less than the rest inside the wrappers. The list of available ones is made up of Bulbasaur, Charmander, Cyndaquil, Dratini, Grookey, Jigglypuff, Lapras, Mew, Pancham, Pikachu, Piplup, Rowlett, Sableye, Sandshrew, Snivy and Squirtle.
This collaboration between Nabisco, the maker of Oreo, and Pokémon was announced this summer, but if you are more into video games than cookies, you should know that Pokémon UNITE has become a phenomenon on mobile devices. Exclusively for Switch we will have Pokémon Shiny Diamond and Shimmering Pearl in November and Pokémon Legends: Arceus in January.
