The North Carolina-based Millennium Print Group will become a subsidiary of The Pokémon Company, as reported by gamesindustry.biz.
Since 2015, the company has been producing Pokémon Trading Card Game products and will be able to do so much more efficiently going forward, according to Pokémon Company president Kenji Okubo.
He said: “The talented team at Millennium Print Group has been an essential partner to The Pokémon Company International for many years, helping us bring the Pokémon Trading Card Game to our fans with the quality they expect.
“By joining forces in a more meaningful way, our goal is to enhance the methods our organizations work together and continue to bring the highest quality Pokémon TCG products to market.
“Simultaneously, we aim to develop Millennium into an even better, bigger, state-of-the-art version of their already exceptional organisation, benefitting not just Pokémon, but all of their customers.”
Pokémon cards grew in popularity 25 years after the original set was released.
In February, an independent gaming store in Minnesota reportedly had around $250k worth of Pokémon merchandise stolen. In March, a man was arrested in Tokyo for allegedly launching a literal heist to steal the unique cards.
