Top 10 Most Expensive Pokemon Cards From Shining Fates

Two of the most successful sets from the past 5 years have been Hidden Fates and Shining Legends. Perhaps it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the Pokemon Company would go on to release a set called Shining Fates. As far as modern sets go, Shining Fates is quite a heavy hitter. The set reintroduces shiny Pokemon, a very popular variant found in Hidden Fates as well as in the games themselves. Interestingly, shiny Pokemon are not the only cards to land on the top 10 list of the most expensive Pokemon cards for Shining Fates. Can you guess what other type of card makes the list? If you read our other posts then you probably can! Let's take a look at the most expensive Pokemon cards for Shining Fates and see what makes this set so great.

#10. Shiny Cinderace Holo Rare - SV017/SV122

Something that sets Shining Fates apart from other modern sets is the reintroduction of regular Shiny Holo Pokemon cards. While typically Ultra Rare cards (and better) are the ones that appreciate in value for modern sets, there remains an interest in Holo Rare cards and a lot of people still have a preference for that old-school design.

The Pokemon Company bringing Shiny Holo Rare Pokemon cards back to the TCG is like a nod to those collectors that prefer the simple Holo designs. Shining Fates features several Galar Region Pokemon as Shiny Holo Rares, as well as some older generation Pokemon.

Shiny Holo Rare Cinderace SV017/SV122 is currently valued around $10.50 at the time of writing.

#9. Shiny Decidueye Holo Rare - SV003/SV122

Decidueye has a very cool dual-type combination of Ghost and Grass. Decidueye was introduced as the final evolution of Rowlet, the Grass Flying starter Pokemon in Generation 7.

Decidueye is described in Pokedex entries as being capable of nocking and firing an arrow at an enemy in a tenth of a second, and having such precision that it can pierce a pebble at a distance of 100 yards. It should be noted that Pokedex entries can be a little... exaggeratory.

Shiny Holo Rare Decidueye SV002/SV122 is currently valued around $11.50 at the time of writing.

#8. Shiny Ditto VMAX Ultra Rare - SV119/SV122

Regarded by many to be the number 1 actual chase card of the set - the Shiny Ditto VMAX Pokemon card comes in at #8 on our list of the top 10 most expensive cards for Shining Fates. This card features the shiny Dynamax version of Ditto, a fan favorite ever since Gen 1.

When Shining Fates first came out and cards originally hit eBay - this card was hitting prices of $60 or $70 because there was so much early demand for it. We are actually surprised to see it so low on this list and wonder if it may climb the rankings again in the future.

Shiny Ditto VMAX Ultra Rare SV119/SV122 is currently valued around $12 at the time of writing.

#7. Shiny Inteleon Holo Rare - SV027/SV122

Just like Cinderace was featured on this list, it is perhaps unsurprising that another Gen 8 starter would make an appearance. Inteleon is the final evolved form of Sobble, the water type starter Pokemon.

Strangely, Rillaboom (the grass type starter evolution) doesn't make the list of the top 10 most expensive cards from Shining Fates. He comes in all the way at #20, which we feel is a grave injustice. #GrookeyGang represent.

Shiny Holo Rare Inteleon SV027/SV122 is currently valued around $13 at the time of writing.

#6. Shiny Galarian Rapidash Holo Rare - SV048/SV122

At #6 we get another familiar face from Generation 1. Well, to be honest, Galarian Rapidash might look a little different than you remember. This is because the Galarian forms of Rapidash and Ponyta got a remake in Generation 8.

These Galarian forms have received mixed responses from the fanbase, but the final verdict seems to be one of support - seeing as these cards in recent sets have done very well in finding value. The Alternate Art Galarian Rapidash in the most recent set, Chilling Reign, has done especially well, being worth around $40 at the moment. Check back soon for a price review of that set, because it is going to be one for the books.

Shiny Holo Rare Galarian Rapidash SV048/SV122 is currently valued around $13.50 at the time of writing.

#5. Shiny Eternatus VMAX Gold - SV122/SV122

And if you are tired of Shiny Holo Rare Pokemon cards being featured on this list, then I've got good news for you. At #5 on this list we have the Generation 8 Legendary Pokemon Eternatus featured in a shiny Gold VMAX card.

Pokemon has been experimenting with their Gold-style cards recently and this black and gold design is a recent introduction to the TCG. Although it can make it fairly difficult to actually make out the Pokemon on the card, it is an understatement to say these cards look stunning in person.

Shiny Gold Eternatus VMAX SV122/SV122 is currently valued around $14 at the time of writing.

#4. Shiny Galarian Ponyta Holo Rare - SV047/SV122

Just as Galarian Rapidash was featured earlier at #6 on this list, Galarian Ponyta makes an appearance at #4. If you are really fond of the design of the Generation 1 Ponyta then you might have trouble liking the Galarian design, since they completely revamped the color scheme and made Ponyta a Psychic type.

Some Pokemon enthusiasts will tell you this Galarian design looks like something straight out of My Little Pony instead of Pokemon. Despite mixed opinions of the aesthetics of the card, it isn't surprising to see this card currently fetching a premium.

Shiny Holo Rare Ponyta SV047/SV122 is currently valued around $16 at the time of writing.

#3. Full Art Skyla Ultra Rare - 072/072

With Full Art cards recently seeing a surge in popularity among collectors, it is a bit surprising that Skyla is the only Full Art Trainer card to make it on the list of the top 10 most expensive Pokemon cards from Shining Fates. Ever since day 1 of launch, this Full Art Trainer has fetched a premium and set itself apart from the rest of the regular cards from Shining Fates.

Shining Fates is actually broken into 2 collections - one being the standard collection with a total of 73 cards (72 plus one secret rare) and the sub-set (called the Shiny vault) which features 122 shiny cards. Skyla is the only card from the standard Shining Fates collection to make it onto this list. Every other card on this list is shiny.

Full Art Skyla Ultra Rare 72/72 is currently valued around $21 at the time of writing.

#2. Shiny Suicune Holo Rare - SV022/SV122

At #2 on the list of the most expensive Pokemon cards from Shining Fates we have the Shiny Holo Rare Suicune. Suicune was introduced in Generation 2 as one of the three Legendary beasts resurrected by Ho-Oh. Suicune is a water type Pokemon and was featured on the boxart for Pokemon Crystal.

All 3 of the Legendary beasts (Entei, Suicune, and Raikou) tend to fetch premium prices when they are featured on cards. It isn't surprising that a fan favorite Legendary as early as Gen 2 would be one of the most expensive cards found in Shining Fates.

Shiny Holo Rare Suicune SV022/SV122 is currently valued around $31 at the time of writing.

#1. Shiny Charizard VMAX Ultra Rare - SV107/SV122

If you didn't see this coming then chances are you didn't know Charizard was in this set. Any time Charizard gets featured in a set it pretty much guarantees a top placement in terms of price, and since this one is a Shiny VMAX Charizard, you can guess it's a very heavy hitter.

The other popular modern Shiny Charizard cards come from Hidden Fates and Champion's Path. The Shining Fates Charizard is a bit special, however, as it is the only Shiny VMAX Charizard to date. This comes shortly after Champion's Path released the VMAX Rainbow Secret Rare Charizard that was a huge hit. It may have been Rainbow and VMAX, but it wasn't shiny!

It's worth noting that Shining Fates has had a large print run so card prices are cheaper than you might expect compared to previous sets. We tend to think that Shining Fates is a great modern set to pursue at the moment while prices are relatively affordable!

Shiny Charizard VMAX SV107/SV122 is currently valued around $177 at the time of writing. We're not convinced this price will last!
