Apart from the popular AR Game's spotlight, Pikachu is also one of the most expensive and coveted Pokemon Trading Card that holds several expensive sales in the past years.

Users may have heard about the expensive Charizard card that was bought by Logic last year for a massive $183,000, as the rapper had tweeted about it. However, Charizard is not the same as Pikachu, which is one of the most iconic faces of the entire Pokemon franchise that even those who are not fans or gamers know and recognize. 

Pokemon Cards hold one of the most expensive sets, as collectors pay thousands of dollars to get their hands on a special edition release, or those from the original and first editions. It may not be much as a collection, but die-hard and loyal fans of the franchise consider this a massive deal and are a prized possession for collectors.
