Salesmuffin 2 blogGold is raining from Japan! Don’t waste the chance to get your hands on a Pikachu-shaped gold nugget.

To celebrate the opening of the Pokemon Center Tokyo DX (@Takashimaya shopping center in the Nihonbashi district), a giant golden statue of Pikachu has been prepared to welcome visitors.

Wanna buy it? I don’t think you could.
However, for that occasion (i.e., from March 14th to 19th) a 24-karat gold Pikachu statue will be on sale for 4045 dollars (3286 euro, 432000 yen).
Is it too much for you? Well, a two-sided gold pendant depicting Pikachu and a Poké Ball will be on sale too for roughly 1500 bucks. Don’t tell me you couldn’t afford it!? Oh boy, you should have listen to me more!

You may be asking, why I should put my money on that?
gp-1Well, I cannot see the future my dear “customer”, however something interesting happened with the 24-karat gold Pikachu card just 2 years ago. To celebrate the card game’s 20th anniversary, this special shiny bauble has been released for 2000 dollars. Now its value has been doubled within a very short period of time. On e-Bay this card has been sold for 4000 dollars. While others are trying to sell it for 10k.

Did you get it? I don’t know you, but if i were in your shoes, I would put my bet on this!

Till next time, the Black Market has always something interesting to offer other than golden pikachus.
