“That's what the kids are snapping up right now,” explains Quentin, laying out half a dozen latest generation Pokémon cards on a counter in his store.
This employee of the Troll2jeux game store, in the 12th arrondissement, is also passionate about his little creatures, who are celebrating their 25th birthday this year.
For good reason, the young man collects the Pokémon cards himself.
“It made me who I am now.
The collection taught me to organize myself, to pay attention to the things I own and to socialize with people ”confides the seller.
Among the young adult customers of the store, Pokémon remain a beautiful memory of the time of the playgrounds: for Loïc, nurse, the card game was above all an opportunity to make exchanges with his classmates from primary school. “We were really in the process of collecting them, of having lots of cards to be able to have as many Pokémon as possible. And obviously go and look for the rarest! », Explains the young man of 29 years. Tessa, event project manager, regrets the proliferation of small creatures in recent years. “Today it has gone too far, there are too many Pokémon, before we found it better and it was much easier! "
