The Pokémon Company has released a statement in regards to the supply issues impacting Pokémon TCG worldwide.
Last week, we reported allocation issues related to the upcoming Shining Fates release.
The statement reads as followed:
We’re aware that some of you are experiencing difficulties purchasing certain Pokémon Trading Card Game products due to very high demand and global shipping constraints impacting availability. We understand this inconvenience can be disappointing for fans, and we are working to address it where it is within our control.
In situations where there is limited availability, we are actively working to print more of the impacted Pokémon TCG products as quickly as possible and at maximum capacity to support this increased demand. Reprinted products are expected to be available at retailers as soon as possible.
For new Pokémon TCG expansions launching in the future, we are maximizing production to increase product availability upon release, and we will continue to reprint the products to replenish stock at retailers as soon as possible.
We’d like to thank the community for their continued support and patience as we work to deliver more Pokémon TCG products to fans.
This is reassuring for fans, highlighting that those in charge are aware of the problems impacting our enjoyment of Pokémon TCG due to the lack of products available in the current climate.
