Some people are attempting to cash in on Poké-fever by offering scarce “Pokémon” Oreo cookies on eBay for ridiculous amounts of money — up to $15,000.
Is this for real?: The “Pokémon” x Oreo collaboration was obtainable for pre-order on Sept. 8 for $3.88, but to prevent hoarding, the company only allowed up to three boxes per customer, according to Dexerto.
- A week later, people began posting listings on eBay to sell the rarest Pokémon Oreo cookie, which features the character Mew. Prices vary for Mew listings on the e-commerce site, which go from as low as $5.50 and up to $15,000.
- A Twitter user, who goes by the manager name @effnaaron, decided to place a listing on eBay for his Mew Pokémon Oreo cookie as a joke. However, he was later surprised to see someone had placed a $51 bid on his auction. The final bid was $5,000.

Limited edition: The cookies come in 16 different designs that characterize iconic “Pokémon” characters such as Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. Those who would like to collect them all will have to buy multiple packages as the cookies were packed randomly.
