    I saw somewhere someone predicting 33% gains still to come over the next week/month. Didn't pay too much attention as I won't be buying, interesting still.

    Commsec has rates for trading on the Japanese exchange so if there are no other barriers, which I wouldn't expect with an individual stock, it should be available.

    Yes, my friend did invest 2 days in Pokemon Go. Now, deleted it. Probably triggered a CGT event!

    You need to enable international trading, I believe there might be a small monthly fee on top of brokerage unless you are active or a larger client.

    I haven't looked at it closely as it wasn't worth the hassle for what I was interested in.

    Good to see Nintendo have something big going with Pokemon Go. They have been struggling for a few years. Everyone has been a Nintendo fan at some point in time but not many seem to buy their products these days

    i would probably be looking more at selling products that will help with the game. If I had 100 pcs of power banks with me this morning while walking around the city, they would have been all sold before morning tea. :D
