Pokemon cards are still just as popular as they were 20 years ago, being widely stocked in most department stores as well as EB Games.

They’re also stocked in most $2 shops and discount stores, although these are Pokemon cards of a different variety. Whilst they look quite similar from the packet, these are counterfeit product. They aren’t real and aren’t recognised in the world of real Pokemon cards.

Well, there’s an image making its way around on social media at the moment which shows an unidentified Australia Post store allegedly¬†selling counterfeit Pokemon cards. This is a real issue as it’s often hard for everyday people to identify these cards as fake. It’s usually expected that reputable, bigger chains to only be selling legitimate product.

Australia Post is currently trying to track the store down on Twitter, but it’s unclear where the photo originated from.

    Not a one-off either, there’s stores near me (Gold Coast QLD) that sell the same cards. I’ve seen other knock-off items as well, e.g. “Dragonball” figures of “Gosan” and “Vageta” (or similar).
