What’s with the shortages? So glad I preordered 3 of these at a normal price...
Seems like they were trying to make product a bit harder to get then a famous Japanese Youtuber said he liked Pokemon then the whole thing exploded again, like when Pokemon Go came out.
To give you an idea how bad it is, a few weeks, maybe a month ago now, Mega Tokyo Pokemon Center was completely out of packs for at least part of a day.
Check this out. What is available online now from Japanese Pokemon Center, think this brings the point home more than anything. No SM era boxes or packs in stock. The next set pre-orders at 1 per customer sold out within a day as well. But they will have more listed at release.
