The Pokemon Trading Card Game has been around for decades, seeing thousands of cards printed of our favorite pocket monsters. As more collectors and players join in with catching all their favorite cards, the prices of these cards only rise. Some increase in value because of their playability, while others are sought after because of their art.
One Pokemon rises above the rest in terms of sheer popularity, and that’s Greninja. The blue Ninja Pokemon has remained one of the most-liked Pokemon since its debut in Pokemon X and Y. However, with popularity comes a cost, and these Greninja cards are some of the most expensive according to tcgplayer.com.
All prices are correct at the time of writing, but as with most commodities, are likely to change with time and demand.
