Random: This Pokémon Fan Now Owns a Second Incredibly Rare Official Poké Car
What is the end part of the merch? A limited edition game console? Rare imprint of the game? Giant plush? Well, Tiktok user Mewisme700 may have the answer to this burning question that even burn treatments won’t cure.
This Pokemon fan and merchandise collector shared a video on her Tiktok showing off her latest purchase. It’s not something she can fit into her already stocked merchandise room, and it’s not a ridiculously rare and absurdly expensive Pokemon card. On the contrary, it is something lot tougher than this.
If you go back to the late 90s (and try not to feel too old), you might remember that Nintendo created the Pikabug, a Volkswagen Beetle that was used to promote the franchise. There are only ten of them in the world, and Mewisme is the proud owner of the seventh, Pika7. Mewism confirmed on Reddit back in 2019 that she paid about $8,000 for the car, but it needed a major restoration, which she has been working hard on since.
She now has a friend who will accompany the yellow car mouse that Nintendo developed to promote the second-generation Pokémon Gold and Silver games, the Lugia Chrysler PT Cruiser.
In the video, Myuisme says she paid $900 just to have the item delivered, but it looks like it’s in pretty good condition! All of Lugia’s signature black studs and her big, long tail adorn the car, although it’s a bit broken, according to Mewismee. However, the wings are part of the sticker, which is probably for the best. Nintendo only had five of these cars, which means they’re even rarer than Pikachu!
The car toured the United States from September 1 to October 6, 2000 and was equipped with a TV and a Nintendo 64 for fans to play games. inside the car. How amazing is that!? Bulbapedia has tracked the entire tour itinerary that these cruisers took, which you can check out at his promotional tour page.
We found a list of cars that Mewisme shared on Reddit back in 2020, which contains many close-up photos of the car’s interior and exterior. This is probably the closest look we’ll ever get, so immerse yourself in ended in the list.
Like a proud owner of Pikachu and car Lugia, an eager fan was happy to share a photo of both of them side by side. How majestic!
Well, we’re incredibly jealous, but even happier that someone who loves Pokémon so much managed to get their hands on the car. Pikachu and Lugia are a pretty cute couple.
If anyone has any memories of Pokemon machines from that time, or if you just want to enjoy these machines, let us know in the comments!
