Twitch streamer Sodapoppin was talking to his chat about the uptick in Pokemon interest lately around the world. It’s been nutty to see how crazy these cards have gotten. They have some real value nowadays and trade for a shit ton of money. Well.. he said the live unboxings that you see around Twitch, is promoting gambling to children.
“I got a lot of shit when I played Blackjack on stream. Because I was promoting gambling to children. And now Pokemon is big and everyone loves it. And now it’s gambling but with a kid friendly label slapped on. Gambling, rated PG for everyone.
Honestly…. it’s a very interesting take, and the more I think of it the more it makes some sense. It’s like unboxing CS:GO crates, or FIFA packs, but in real life. Right? I’m not the most knowledgeable when it comes to the Pokemon game, but I’m assuming it’s a crap shoot to get a valuable card, but when it hits… it hits.
