Pokémon TCG Value Watch: Silver Tempest In June 2023

Pokémon TCG Value Watch analyzes Silver Tempest in June 2023, noting which cards can be scooped up now and which remain high in value.

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 – Silver Tempest, which came out in November 2022, are doing now in June 2023.

  15. Lugia VSTAR 139/195: $9.81

This Pokémon TCG expansion includes a Trainer Gallery subset. The top cards of this subset are:

  1. Rayquaza VMAX Character Super Rare TG20/TG30: $34.41
  2. Judge Full Art Trainer Supporter TG25/TG30: $14.67
  3. Friends in Galar Full Art Trainer Supporter TG23/TG30: $13.23
  4. Duraludon VMAX Character Super Rare TG21/TG30: $12.46
  5. Professor Burnet Full Art Trainer Supporter TG26/TG30: $9.69

So, what cards of this Lugia and Alolan Vulpix-themed expansion are down in June 2023? Lugia V Alternate Art has dropped $18, but this chase card is still closer to $200 than $100. Regieleki Rainbow Rare took a major hit, losing almost 50% of its value this month. That makes sense, as it was overvalued considering the unpopularity of Rainbow Rares during this set's release. Forest Seal Stone Holographic Rare came out of nowhere due to playability, becoming potentially the current highest valued standard holo-rare of the Sword & Shield era overnight, at a time when holo-rares are bulk.
