Maybe, but we said the same thing about jirachi.
Honestly, the reason they won't is largely that they already are pretty low. Both had easily obtainable promo versions, and neither is a top deck right now (both are _good_ decks, but neither is BDIF or anything like that).
Both are a bit under $10 right now, which means a $25 deck that has two of them (and not much else of real value) won't move the needle on their price very much; it might drop it a dollar or two but not much.
Unless they're second fiddle to something better in the deck, anyway - i.e., Jirachi, or something equivalent (though I can't imagine what else could be in either deck that would be equivalent).
They might even come with custom catchers which played a part in many league decks. I think pokemon are finally responding to reducing the value on the second market and making it cheaper to play the game, the same way yugioh have been doing for a while?
I just hope they end up doing more Expanded cards soon. They've hugely improved making certain things accessible to players (See every TTGX tin in the last year), but I really really hope Expanded can get a similar treatment soon.
YAAASSSS I barely play any more but I am definitely getting these!!
Daaaamnnn. With these, the Zacian V tins, and one more SWSH Prerelease kit that I still want to get... man, that’s a lot of money to be going out all at once. I would prefer it by a mile if they staggered the releases of these high-demand products by a month or so.
Don't think it will but here's hoping
Really impressed with this. May have to pick both up.
This is so cool! I've always wanted to try to get into the competitive scene, but never really had the money or know-how to build a good deck. This just makes that so much easier which I love.
We don't know what other cards are included though. If this has dedenne, jirachi, or marnie it will be the same as before where these will never be in stock.
A new story has just been posted to PokéBeach's front page:

These are kinda lame looking gonna be honest
I really am not so sure how i feel about this.
Crossing my fingers that these will bring back the non-holo jirachis, if they do, I might stand a fighting chance at Fort Wayne, as I only have one sleepy boi
While the products themselves seem good, I just wish the packaging wasn't so "Biggerer is betterer!" I get that they want to actually show the three GX's, but how much space does the packaging really need for the rest of the contents? They've been doing this for years...
Anyway. Trifle over. I'll be interested to see what other cards are included later.
That's always kinda been one of my gripes with some of Pokemon's TCG products. A lot of their box sets they do have to be AS LARGE AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE TO ATTRACT ATTENTION when most of it is completely unnecessary fluff. I'd prefer they go more like how they do with their ETBs and just pack it without too much extra.
After looking at this one though, all things considered it isn't horrible in comparison, from what I'm looking at with the contents they might be able to pack everything in a decently compact way given the dice/counters, the manuals, etc. but I hope they shrink down with some of their REALLY unnecessarily large products.
acrylic gx marker?
I mean, this is an awesome entry point. Compare to other tcgs, where certain chase cards are intentionally withheld for profit.
The funny thing about the large box sets' packaging attracting attention is that most local game stores and even big box stores in my area lay these box sets on its side, thus mitigating the "wow" factor from potential impulse buyers buying this by looking at the front of the product.
It's as if TPCi doesn't understand that there is something called shelf space or something.
