5 Ways Pokémon NFTs Are Finding the Metaverse Story

One of the most popular use cases for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) minted on the blockchain is gaming. And while Pokémon might be one of the older video games still around, with Red and Green emerging on Nintendo Game Boy in the mid-nineties, the brand has become an early mover into the metaverse, a virtual world where NFTs feel right at home.

Another primary use case for NFTs is collecting, something Pokémon fans know something about. The two-pronged model of gaming and cards has made Pokémon an ideal candidate for NFTs, and it seems that the blockchain community is already on it.

As Pokémon fans everywhere celebrate Pokémon Day, we decided it was an excellent time to explore some of the ways that this hit gaming and collecting franchise has made its way onto the blockchain and into the metaverse.
