Whenever a new product successfully enters the marketplace, you better believe that competitors are going to try to ride its coat tails. In the best case scenario, this just means more competition, and in turn, a better product. But sometimes we get a rushed product that doesn't even try to hide the fact that it is a cheap knockoff.
The thing I don't get is: Who are these knockoffs for? Who loves Pokemon so much they have to own all the merchandise, but not enough to know what Pokemon actually look like? There have to be a lot of people in the center of this venn diagram, because there are a lot of knockoffs out there and someone has to be supporting those manufacturers.
And, listen, if I am talking about you here, please feel free to explain it to me.
