Eevee Heroes launched last Friday and since then Pokemon TCG fans worldwide have struggled to buy any products from the set for a reasonable price due to incredible demand and supply levels targeted at the Japanese market.
Today, The Pokémon Company has released a statement highlighting their awareness of issues related to the release and their dedication to meeting current Eevee Heroes demand so that we can all enjoy the set.
The statement released in Japanese translates as followed:
“Thank you for your continued patronage of our products. We have confirmed that the product released on May 28 (Friday), the enhanced expansion pack “Eevee Heroes”, is in short supply nationwide. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers and retailers who are looking forward to it.“
“Regarding the enhanced expansion pack “Eevee Heroes”, we have started to reproduce it along with the continuation of shipment so that it can be delivered to the customers who are purchasing it. We will continue to reproduce and resell other shortage products that have already been released. We will continue to make efforts to deliver to as many customers as possible, and we appreciate your understanding.”
We’ve covered issues related to bots affecting the Eevee Heroes release and raffle systems extensively and this is some good news that Pokémon Japan is aware of issues and looking to make sure that product and cards are printed.
Just earlier today, The Pokemon revealed their total sales data for the past fiscal year as of March 31st, 2021. They have now sold 34.1 billion total cards with an increase of 3.7 billion from March 2020. That means that in the last 12 months they sold 10% of all Pokémon cards sold in history.
This statement related to Eevee Heroes printing gives us all hope that these cards will be printed and available to the masses if we just remain patient. Hold on and you will reap the rewards of some beautiful alternate art cards and other amazing pieces of artwork that can be seen in our article here.
