    I really really liked the LV.X art of Leafeon and Glaceon. One of the best looking Eeveelutions I have.

    I wish we got secret rare shiny sinnoh starters instead of the Rainbow rare cards that are so boring... (or missing clover)

    I would think we can expect pheramosa gx, xuritree gx, and celestela gx FA and RR as well. Similar to what happened with Tapu Bulu GX getting a FA and RR in Burning shadows after being a promo.

    What happened to that Torterra? Did translation miss something or did Torterra lose 80 damage when it came to America? Has it gone soft? Is it afraid to fight? TELL ME WHAT IS GOING ON!!!

    That's... not quite how it works.

    It's just basic "Supply and Demand."
    You can't sell a card for $50, if no one wants to pay $50 for it.

    Some numbers on current staples:
    • Brigette - $19.47
    • Sycamore - $18.65
    • Guzma - $40.02
    • N (XY alt) - $33.86
    Now, these cards are listed in chronological order.
    With the exception of N, their prices are in order as well.
    N's price is lower because:
    1. It's in a collection, so it's easier to obtain
    2. There was already a full art N, so there's less demand for this one

    This is because, people who want the FAs, already bought them.
    Now, they've lowered it, so they can sell to the people who were hesitant about the high price.

    People still want Guzma FAs, so it's still a high price, but not as high as it once was.

    Cynthia's price will be dependent on what people are willing to pay for it.
    There are rare cases, where the love for a card/character can keep the price high, as people consistently buy it at that price; not sure if that will be the case here though.

    It will likely start around $45-50, and drop overtime to about $25, once all the fanatics have bought their copy.

    Uncanny how nobody has yet pulled the GX’s that’s have not been listed...
    Is WPM tricking us right here?

    the Palkia RR looks better than the full art because the background for the full art is a disgusting.

    I can only say one thing. I AM SO HAPPY THERE IS LESS GX SR. I mean for collecting it is ridiculous the amount they have normally. I do wish they would switch up the type of SR though. I liked the Shiny idea of the starter pokemon (Infernape, Torterra, and Empoleon).

    But either way its nice to get a break. Love the FA trainers

    Personally I am under the impression that Guzma will see a spike in price after they stop printing Burning Shadows, and will only start to dip once it is near rotation. That is also most likely why all of the other cards such as Brigette and Sycamore are less expensive, as they will most likely (definitely) rotate out. I think that Guzma will actually go up to somewhere around $65 before going down, since it is really really the best thing we have now. Same as Cynthia. She will more than likely start high and continue to be high, because from my understanding, it is very possible that Cynthia can come as a holo instead of an uncommon, and since it is the only aggressive draw supporter we will have after rotation, it will, by my prediction, be akin to Shaymin-EX or the current Tapu Lele-GX in terms of price. I don't have an economics degree, but I think I have a decent understanding of what the meta will want, and it's Cynthia.

    I understand the thought process, but the main difference here... is that she has a lower rarity version available.
    Since that's the case, it's more realistic to speculate based off her supporter counterparts; N, Sycamore, and Guzma.

    Which route will she take though?
    Personally, I feel she will be a Sycamore, which is the reasoning behind my original estimate.

    Though, she could very well be a Guzma, stabilizing around $35-$60 while she's in the format...

    Or even an N, who's standard market price is still $89.44 (Noble Victories FA).

    I think the artwork matters a lot here, which is another reason I'm confident with my estimate.
    I don't really like Cynthia's FA; I felt the same towards Sycamore.

    I have heard rumors about English Cynthia going up to like $70
