Yeah, I think that the word Polemon gave it away.

Doubtful. After 98,000+ catches I still have only 562 in my Dex.

That explains why my kid never got his super cheap Chinese import Christmas presents a few years back.

The fake plastic is of better quality

Who plays Pokemon anymore, at least I know my early addition Magic the Gathering cards from the mid 90s will only go up in value.

So it's okay to choke on the real ones?

What the hell is the border patrol doing in Harrisburg, PA?

I just ordered a box of illegals and had them labeled as pokemon figures from mexico, so here's hoping.

They are still worth a lot, as the gaming shop who bought my stolen collection can attest.

Ya, they want me to hand over my collection so they can check them out. I took a weekend off to physically research and count each card. Even at the low end quality its like 3k.

But, Hair Fürher assured us he blocked travel from China....

I am pleased, but only because I opened the article expecting to see a bunch of pangolins, shark fins, or something else endangered and awful.

No, they didn't.

They never will. As long as people buy 'reproduction' pokemon games, people will manufacture them.

Harrisburg has an inland port. It's the customs function of the agency, not the border protection.

"CBP import specialists appraised the shipment at $603,936"   at 86000 of those crap tastic things that a touch over $7  each.    cop math in play.

And not a single Mew.

My gal is starting to sell off her Pokemon card collection and already has over $100k in sales agreements for this weekend.  And that's barely scratching the surface of what all she has.
