Pokémon TCG Value Watch: Chilling Reign In September 2022

The Pokémon TCG is an ever-changing and unpredictable market. Over the past two years, we've seen renewed interest in the hobby due to a number of factors, including the 25th Anniversary, strong Sword & Shield-era sets featuring stunning Alternate Arts, influencers, box breaks, COVID-19 lockdown pushing people to find hobbies, and more. For a time, sets and cards that were readily available quickly became difficult to find. Now that the hype is settling down, let's see where modern sets stand. Every month, I will do an installment of this series, Pokémon TCG Value Watch. This series is not financial advice but is rather a way to help collectors know the trajectory of a card's availability so that Pokémon TCG completionists like myself know when to strike. Today, let's see how the cards of Sword & Shield – Chilling Reign, which came out in June 2021, are doing now in September 2022.

There is very little movement this month for Sword & Shield – Chilling Reign. Both of the chase cards, the Blaziken VMAX Alternate Art and the Galarian Moltres V Alternate Art, slightly increased in value. I can see the Galarian Moltres V eventually overtaking the Blaziken VMAX again because it's just a much stronger illustration.
