Prospective bidders have up until 6:34 PM Central Time (or 7:34 PM Eastern Time) on Monday, June 21st, to place a bid for this exquisite copy of one of the powerhouse games in Pokémon's extensive history as a beloved media franchise.
Set in Johto, a region that is distinct from the first generation's region of Kanto and separated by a major mountain range and the Tohjo Falls, the second generation of these games features a storyline largely focused on the revival (and, spoiler alert, ultimate dissolution) of Team Rocket, following the events of Pokémon Red and Green, the first-ever games in the franchise (if you'll recall, Green Version was made as Blue Version when localized outside of Japan).
According to the auction listing on ComicConnect's website:
A+ Seal Rating; First-party H-Seam; Made in Japan. E Rating; Y-Fold box; Foil(USA Code)
Introduced 100 new Pokémon (Second Generation); Developed by Game Freak; Directed by Satoshi Tajiri; Programmed by Shigeki Morimoto; Cover Artist: Ken Sugimori
Gotta catch even more! Enter a whole new world, with new Pokémon to capture, train and battle! Meet Professor Elm and get the all-new Poke Gear, including map, radio, cell phone and clock. Set the clock then watch as day turns to night and events take place in real time – and be sure to keep and eye out for Pokémon that come out only at night!
