Glad someone finally agrees.
I mean I posted charts!? People want to try and disprove credible evidence? It is sales data put in chart form, very easy to follow.
Edit - I "did" check every GB to GBA game and they were all pretty much following the same trends.
the fakes flooded the market waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before pokemon go
eshop releases were also way before it as well.
prices didnt go crazy when pokemon go came out. Very mild spike. Fakes were everywhere keeping the market down already.
Pokemon games have been bottomed out in price for awhile. This wasnt some trend after pokemon go. I dont know what point you are trying to make. If it is pokemon go fad died down so pokemon games are cheap now, then that isnt correct. They were already low before it. Just returned to normal.
Every chart shows a similar trend. Somewhere around 2012 or 2013 is when Pokemon game prices started to rise to where they are now. There is a spike for every Pokemon game right when Pokemon go came out. Doesn't look like bootlegs are actually effecting the price much at all. Prices now are higher than they were pre 2012-2013, and I am sure there were tons of bootlegs before then. So yea, what are we talking about?
I dont trust any tracking site like price charting pre 2013/2014ish especially.
Ive sold atleast a 100 or more pokemon games since 2010. I sell stuff like that all the time for a job on ebay. I follow the trends for those games. They are not getting the prices they were before the bootlegs flooded the market. The originals didnt have bootlegs till later. GBA games were affected waaaay before the originals. I dont trust any site to keep up with the info of bootlegs and authentic pokemon game price averages.
Pokemon games sold for much more money before the originals got flooded with fakes. It severely depressed the pricing trends, and the higher priced copies that usually sold just dont anymore. I always priced them higher and had no problem unloading them. The 3ds eshop releases really was what started the trend down. Not some pokemon go collapse. This all happened before pokemon go. Not going to trust a website avg price data chart on something like pokemon when Ive seen it happen first hand and have experienced it selling pokemon games as much as I do
ALL IM TRYING TO SAY
The downward trend of pokemon prices wasnt due to pokemon go lost interest. It started before that. Pokemon go ressurected the prices some, and they went back to what they were before. This wasnt a trend that started with pokemon go decline.
