Being a huge pokemon fan, I think I am obligated to purchase one of those.

Still not telling us how much. For the love of all that spins on the end of strings, just tell me I can’t afford it.

Ok so i get that Unknown is a yoyo players brand but does anybody know why a bunch of different yoyos from a bunch of different brands have unknown editions? Whats the history of unknown? Why is it so sought after?

Yoyo companies like the player, like his design, know the customers also will like him and his design and will buy the yoyo, so they chose to collab. It’s that simple.

It’s limited, looks coooool, people like the player, and it’s probably on a already pretty popular yoyo, so it’s sought after. It’s that simple.

More evidence that Unknown can do something besides black.

Waiting on numbers from CoreCo and to see Japan Technology and Topyo to respond to my request.

This should be all of them to this point in time (01-05-2022).

*Release dates reflect first time they were made available for public purchase (some were released outside the US beforehand).

**Total numbers were complied from drop date information coupled with info that was received straight from the companies. Might not reflect any additional runs that were created outside the initial drop.
