Do you think SM/USUM will keep the 3DS valued past 2019?

    Do you think SM/USUM will keep the 3DS valued past 2019?

    I think it will!

    When Sw/Sh comes out, SM/USUM will be the only games where you can use all 800+ pokemon (minus the Galar pokemon). Even though Sw/Sh will be new, the value of being able to use all 800+ pokemon cannot be dismissed.

    What do you think?

    Depends on how long Alola games online systems will stay up and how long they'll be producing them. Pokémon games tend to rise in price the longer it has been since production stopped. You can see that nowadays with ORAS often being more expensive than USUM, ORAS is not far from exceeding Let's Go Pikachu in price here, and the gen 4 games being well over twice as expensive as any 3DS game. Once USUM grows to 100€ in pricetag without any online support it won't be nearly as good of a buy as it was at release.

    To an extent yes. If the online servers aren’t quickly shut down like what happened to the DS games as soon as SwSh come out, people will still be trading and battling online for a few more years. RBY And GS extended the original GB by about four years and the GBC two years after the GBA was released. Gen III extended the GBA lifespan by three years. The DS games would have made the system’s lifespan much longer had the servers not been shut down a year and a half after BW2 were released and about another year before XY were released. That hurt those games so much as the biggest things to do post game were trading and battling online.

    Since USUM are the most complete pair of games in the sense that you can get the most Pokemon, then yeah I definitely think that they'll still be popular even when those two abominations known as Shield/Sword are released.
