Pokemon Card Prices

Many people might be looking for Pokemon card prices since most of the official card price guides don't usually cover collections other then baseball cards or basket ball cards. Since Pokemon cards are a specific hobby finding Pokemon card prices are usually too specific or might not be widly accepted by every hobbist or collector. But I've been working on a complete guide for all of the rare cards out of each expansion which ends up working out to be a pretty good general idea about how much cards are valued.

I'm sure you're wondering what makes makes my website better then most of the websites which list prices on their websites. Well for one thing I'm not selling Pokemon cards from my website so I'm not going to try to tell you a card is worth more then it's true value is to try and sell you it for a premium price. Secondly I'm always working on my websites so I keep them up to date. If a change is needed I have access to make the change right away. So you're getting prices from a fellow collector who isn't making this website to steal your money. I'm here to provide useful information for people that collect Pokemon cards and also for people that play the card game.

I also provide a high and low price. The reason for this is because we all know of places like ebay or other auction websites as well as our standard hobby shops and websites which sell Pokemon cards. The low usually indicates what you would pay if you went to action which also doesn't mean that the card won't sell for a lower price then what's listed. Remember auctions and what people are willing to pay for a card comes down to how popular, how rare, and the demand of that Pokemon card. Just like a common card could sell for double or triple its value if enough people wanted that card even if it's not as rare as a holographic card. So in the end the Pokemon card prices which I provide to you are just a guide which will give you an idea of the possible range. And since I actually do research and collect data by range of different prices and giving you a idea of minimum and maximum price you might pay or make when you sell pokemon cards.

Eventually I plan on having full guides for everything Pokemon card prices related as well as full lists of all the Pokemon cards and theme decks. But for now I covered most of the very popular and expensive expansions. I appologize for how long it takes to put them out but I wouldn't want to rush the process and end up making mistakes and posting value's which are not correct causing people to think a Pokemon card is worthless when it might be worth quite a lot.

I'm also open to suggestions on how to make this Pokemon blog even better so if you have idea's regarding Pokemon card prices or have a suggestion about something to add leave me a comment or feel free to email me. Below I've included links to each of the card lists which contain prices guides and I will update them as I get more finished this will help so you don't have to search the whole blog to find these easily.

These are all the English release of Pokemon card prices in the future I might decide to also add the Japanese card prices as well but I'm first doing all of the English cards since this website is English and most people will be coming here looking for Pokémon card prices which reflect that.

Buying Pokemon Loom Bracelet

Loom braclets are a popular new trend that is popular with children that allows them to make friendship bracelets which are made out of tiny rubber bands. Looms comes in many different colors and it's up to the creativity of the person and the skill level of the person to make the loom bracelet.

So far when it comes to Pokemon loom's I have not seen any specific ones in stores but people have been coming in and asking about these since there is Hello Kitty looms. Ive seen a Hello Kitty loom bracelet kit that comes with small charms which are shaped like Hello Kitty. And I have seen people just make Hello Kitty faces using looms. But as of so far I have not seen any Pokemon looms.

With how popular Pokemon is hopefully a company will start making Pokemon looms at the very least using Pokemon charm's which can be weaved into the loom's during the creation of the braclet similar to the Hello Kitty ones. Or it would be nice if a company came in and made a specific Pokemon Loom bracelet kit that provides enough looms to make the respected Pokemon with the proper loom colors since when you buy most of the packs they don't usually provide all of just one color and the color of the looms are usually really random from most stores.

I have seen some user made guides of making Pokemon looms but they look nothing like the actual pokemon and usually it's not the fault of the person making them. Usually its more the issue of lack of proper loom band color's. There are some multi colored loom braclet kits and they do contain some of the colors to make the Pokemon loom's but it would be up to creativity to actually make Pokemon looms since there are no real guides or nothing so far that can be found about creating Pokemon loom bracelets.

But for now you could still get some of the chibi Pokemon charms and use those along side of your loom bracelet creations to still get the Pokemon loom fashion result. These can be weaved into your loom bracelets to give them a Pokemon Theme. This would be great as a christmas gift too since it can be hard to find good gift idea's that are inexpensive.

But hopefully in the future it will be possible to buy Pokemon looms without needing to just be creative. Not saying its bad to be creative since that's the whole idea behind looms but sometimes it's good to have some direction from someone that knows it's possible to make one or can help provide some extra tips that make the process much easier.
