As any Pokemon fan knows, the earliest titles in the series are hard to come by, making them a highly sought-after collector's item. Unfortunately, one fan recently experienced the devastation of having their Wata-graded copy of the original Pokemon Yellow Game Boy game destroyed by US customs.
The incident was reported by Nightdive Studios CEO Stephen Kick, who revealed an image of the destroyed game box on social media. According to Kick, the customs officers had broken the Wata seal in order to inspect the contents of the box and then proceeded to tear off the cover of the box in the process.
The destruction of such a rare and valuable collector's item is a hard pill to swallow for any fan, and this incident has raised some questions about the way customs officers handle such items. The incident has sparked a discussion among fans, who have voiced their opinions online and demanded answers.
Nightdive Studios has since contacted US Customs to inform them of the incident and has requested a full investigation into the matter. As of now, the company has yet to receive any response or explanation from the agency.
It's a sad reminder that even the most treasured collector's items can be damaged or destroyed and that it's important for customs officers to handle them with care. Hopefully, a response from US Customs will shed more light on the matter and provide some answers.
