It has been over a quarter century since Pokémon officially made its debut and during that time the Pocket Monsters have grown into multigenerational cultural icons. While the Pokémon TCG continues to be the most traded brand of trading cards on StockX, the popularity of Pokémon can be seen across the marketplace as it is responsible for some of the hottest collectibles and collaborations on the site today. To help you decide what Pokémon piece to add to your collection next, we have put together a list of the best Pokémon products under $150 available today.
While temperatures are starting to cool, the Pokémon releases in 2022 are heating up. For the second consecutive year, Pokémon has come together with McDonald’s to offer four card booster packs in Happy Meals through September 26th with each pack containing one holo card. The checklist is made up of 15 total Pokémon including Pikachu, Rowlet, Smeargle, plus more with each card having a regular and foil version available for a total of 30 cards. As was the case last year, this installment of the Pokémon x McDonald’s collaboration has been one of the most talked about Pokémon merch items of the year with sealed cases containing 150 packs selling for around $150.
The Pokémon TCG has decided to officially embrace spooky season this year by offering the aptly named Pokémon TCG Trick or Trade BOOster Bundle. The complete set is made up of 30 cards, ten of which are holographic including everyone’s favorite ghost, Gengar, and the super powerful psychic-type, Mewtwo. While each card in the set is a reprint, this seasonal Pokémon merch masterpiece sees each card get a special edition Pikachu pumpkin stamp in the lower right-hand corner of the art panel. While retailers are quickly seeing these Pokémon BOOster bundles sell out, you can pick up a 40-pack parcel for less than $30 on StockX.
In the world of art today, few names are as big as Daniel Arsham. Inspired by Greco-Roman ruins, Arsham has become known for taking significant cultural artifacts and reimagining them in his signature corroded style. The Daniel Arsham X Pokémon X 2G TOKYO Pikachu Keychain
imagines Pikachu as a worn ruin from the past with evidence of erosion on its tail, face, and body. While most works from Arsham command a hefty price tag, this unique piece of Pokémon merch is a rarity in more than one way as it fetches an average sale price of $75 on StockX.
When it comes to Pokémon plushes, few can compete with the cuddly cuteness of the sleepy Snorlax, which is why Fragment Design came together with Pokémon and delivered the Fragment X Pokémon Snorlax Thunderbolt Project Plush as a piece of the Pokémon merch that they released to promote Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Pokémon project at sequence MIYASHITA PARK Hotel in Tokyo. The seven-inch plush is constructed out of super smooth black velvet and features a silver Fragment thunderbolt logo on the back seam of the plush.
Pokémon fans have been long awaiting a sneaker collaboration, and Converse finally delivered at the end of 2021 with a lineup of Chuck Taylors featuring popular Pocket Monsters and Pokémon paraphernalia alike. Having over 1,000 trades on StockX, the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Pokémon First Partners is by far the most popular item to come out of this Pokémon merch collaboration. The outside panel of the shoe features a lineup of the original three starter Pokémon from the Red and Blue videogames, Squirtle, Charmander, Venusaur, plus the precious Pikachu, while Jigglypuff can be found on the opposite side below the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star logo that has been made to look like a Poké Ball. Pokémon branding on the tongue and red and white eyelets at the top of the shoe complete the commemorative collaboration. You can catch these special edition Converse for just over $100.
