I generally have zero interest in collecting Japanese cards but these are cool enough I might try.
I've never looked into it before but is there a way to order directly from Japan or their Pokemon Center to ship to the U.S.?
Like how do scalpers get their hands on them and is there a chance to beat them?
As someone who collects only Japanese cards I rarely seem to have problems with scalpers. They seem way more interested in the English ones. So fingers crossed you won't have too much trouble getting these.
