Memorabilia auction companies including Heritage Auctions, Goldin Auctions and PWCC Auctions have all had record-breaking sales of various Pokémon cards including a first edition Holo Charizard which last fetched approximately $420,000 USD and remains one of the most expensive Pokémon card to date.

The Pokémon frenzy continued when YouTube turned wrestler Logan Paul showed off his recently acquired $5,275,000 USD PSA Grade 10 Pikachu Illustrator Card at WrestleMania 38. Paul set a new Guinness World Record for the most expensive Pokémon trading cards sold at a private sale. Due to its sale conditions, Paul's card is not included in this list.
