I like Pokemon more than you! :p
A couple of Celebrations products have been delayed according to notices sent out by some North American distributors. This includes the Pikachu V-UNION Collection, the Lance’s Charizard V Collection, and the Dark Sylveon Collection. They were supposed to release on October 8th but “may be delayed and unavailable” due to “uncertain shipping conditions.”
These delays would apply to retailers serviced by distributors, such as hobby stores. It may also apply to big box retailers, though we don’t exactly know how Pokemon’s supply chain is set up. The Pokemon Center probably has its own supply of products separate from retailers.
The rest of the Celebrations products are currently shipping and are expected to arrive in time for their October 8th and October 22nd release dates.
Update (Wednesday): Some Canadian distributors have now reported the same delays.
