The long-standing and much-loved Pokémon franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and Nintendo have been celebrating with a series of videos on their official YouTube channel. In their latest Pokémon20 video, they invited grime MC JME to enthusiastically talk about how he finally acquired a shiny Charizard card after he released his third studio album, Integrity>. Growing up, he mentioned that he collected the cards religiously, but for some reason he never managed to get ahold of a shiny Charizard.
“I remember having a Mew, and I was like, ‘oh my god I got a Mew’, I was gassed,” he explained. “But, shiny Charizard evaded me, I never got one.” Explaining he offered to trade a shiny version of his album on vinyl for a shiny Charizard, JME enthusiastically showcased his collection of Charizard like the proud owner he is.
