According to the network of Chinese media observers, the Customs of the Shanghai Pudong airport was seized on November 22 out of a total of twenty boxes with about 400,000 counterfeit letters from the Pokémon multimedia franchise. The total weight of the cargo was more than 7.6 tons.
"It is one of the highest volumes of cargo with material that violates the intellectual property rights seized at the airport in recent years," he said one of the sources. The Pokémon collectible card game was one of the first games of this type in Japan, and is focused on the battle aspects of the popular series of video games of the same name.
The sources indicate that the markets of Europe and the United States are suffering from a shortage of these products, mainly derived from the prolonged suspension of world trade by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the absence of merchandise worldwide, there is a lot of competition and resellers take advantage of the occasion to increase the price of their products, while counterfeiters rush to produce mass load volumes as recently seized.
