Last week Pokemon cards got pulled from stores due to an issue with scalpers, and we thought that this would be the end to it. Well, they are at it again.
Scalpers were creating scenes worldwide and caused disturbances in stores to get their hands on the most popular cards at the moment so they can sell them on the black market for an unreasonable price. Due to this, many stores stopped selling them in-store to keep the safety of the customers and their employees.
One of the stores that discounted the cards was Walmart. But, a video started circulating where one Walmart store did not obey this, resulting in chaos. The video reveals that scalpers are literally fighting each other to get the Pokemon card pack. To remind you all, this is occurring in the middle of the worst pandemic the world has seen.
Got this video from Instagram from @tcg_grassi and wanted to bring it to Twitter. This shit is unbelievable. pic.twitter.com/ELYSDR2Cc5
