What is Your Pokémon Card Value

As the most prominent media franchise of all time, Pokémon is worth an incredible $92.121 billion.

It all began in 1996 when Satoshi Tajiri created the first video game of the franchise: Pocket Monsters: Red and Green, for Japanese audiences.

Over the next fifteen years, Pokémon became a multi-media franchise, setting records with each installment. The widely successful video game series sparked the creation of a Pokémon TV series with over one thousand episodes.

On top of that, the Pokémon Trading Card Game is the most popular Collectible Card Game (CCG) worldwide.

Media Factory introduced Pokémon cards to the Japanese Market in 1996. It took three more years until their release in North America.

These Pokémon cards sold for crazy prices at auctions held by serious collectors.

The number of Pokémon cards out there worth $1 or less vastly outnumber those worth even $500.
