Japanese Pokemon Card Values

Looking for the Japanese Pokemon Card Values? Look no further. Find them in this blog post here. 

What makes Japanese Pokemon cards special?

It has to do with the fact that since they are the “source” card for all translated versions, non-Japanese collectors have a particular obsession with obtaining cards that have not yet or will never be released in their own country. This can be seen with promotional cards released only in Japan, which often go for high prices overseas like the 15th Anniversary Full Art Pikachu, the newer Battle Festa Pikachu, and the older CoroCoro Shining Mew. 

How are Japanese cards priced?

Even though cards from Japan can’t be used in tournaments outside of the country, foreign collectors should know that they’re still used for tournament play inside Japan. That’s why playable cards have much higher resale values. The problem for non-Japanese collectors bidding on auctions is that they aren’t part of the competitive Japanese. Japanese pokemon cards player community, it can be difficult to know when you’re looking at a deal or not. However, there is an easy way to tell how much a Japanese standard format card should be worth. (Standard format means the cards that can be used in current tournaments.) The reason for the difference in prices is that the Japanese Pokemon community has relatively fewer collectors and more players, which leads to a higher demand for Trainer cards and playable Pokemon staple cards (cards that are used in nearly every deck) for deckbuilding, whereas the pull rates for EX cards are much better than in English booster backs.

What about Pokemon promotional cards?

A special group of Japanese cards fall under the promotional category and are given out at tournaments, as magazine freebies, at Pokemon events, or as gifts when buying Pokemon merchandise at one of the Pokemon Centers. They are rarely valuable due to broad distribution and uselessness for players. There are some exceptions, though, that hardly ever make it outside of Japan, either because of their value to players, like the Muscle Band card which was given a top price of up to $50 USD.

When is the best time to buy Japanese Pokemon cards?

Once new cards are released in Japan, their value tends to shoot up dramatically and stay that way until finally released in English. During that time, even unplayable Rare Rare (RR) and Super Rare (SR) are worth enough to increase in value when buying Japanese Pokemon sets, which is about 30 USD in retail.

After that time, the prices for unplayable cards plummet, while playable cards usually maintain their value, at least when sold from Japan. As soon as a playable card leaves Japan the value usually decreases due to the diminished market, which then only consists of card collectors.

Examples of these playable rare cards are the VS Seeker in Ultra Rare (UR) from Roaring Skies (XY6 Emerald Break) and the older Ultra Ball in Ultra Rare (UR) from Plasma Freeze (BW9 Spiral Force). These cards reach 2–3 times the value of other Golden UR cards even though the rarity is the same.

Japanese Pokemon Card Buying Guide Recap

Sometimes pricing rare Japanese Pokemon cards can be very hard, but if you follow the simple pricing formula above, you can usually have a good idea of what a card is worth, regardless of whether you are looking to buy or sell.

In some rare cases you might get a cheaper deal from a local seller in your country, especially for extremely playable cards, but for most cards checking a Japanese auction proxy site, will give you cheaper options.
