Charizard, the final evolution of everyone’s favorite fire Pokémon, is worth more than you might think. In the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG), there have been many releases of Charizard. It’s a fantastic card to have.

And although not as rare as a gold star Umbreon, or as powerful as a Mewtwo-EX, the Charizard-GX card is highly sought after and fairly valuable.

Just how much can you get for your Charizard-GX Pokémon card? This guide will help you find out. Make sure you read below to discover the different values for the different releases of Charizard-GX.

TLDR; Here’s How Much a Charizard-GX is Worth

Charizard-GX was introduced to replace Charizard-EX. It has been printed in various sets throughout Sun & Moon, and different cards have different values.

  • The lowest average market price for any Charizard-GX is $5.
  • The highest average market price for any Charizard-GX is $410.

On eBay, some cards are selling for several thousands of dollars, or even $15,500 in one case. These are ‘unicorn’ cases and usually cards sell for closer to their market price. The condition of the card also factors heavily into the price.

The most valuable Charizard-GX cards are shiny, rainbow and promo releases. See below for individual card prices.

Most Valuable Charizard-GX Pokemon Card 

The first Charizard-GX card was released in the Sun & Moon expansion, back in late 2016 or early 2017 (depending on your location in the world). Since then, full art versions, shiny cards, tag teams and more have been released featuring Charizard-GX.

Charizard-GX is not the same as regular Charizard, nor Charizard-EX. If you need values for these card types, scroll down to our guide below.

Here are the average market prices and some examples of when these cards sold for much more!

Charizard-GX Value

With so many Charizard-GX cards available, the easiest way to keep track of which we are referring to is by identifying the number in the bottom left-hand corner of the card. Usually presented as 00/000 or AA000.

Sun & Moon: Burning Shadows (20/147)

Burning Shadows (20_147)

Released around August 2017, the first Charizard-GX card is full-art (like all Charizard-GX cards) and features Crimson Storm. Despite being ultra-rare, it’s not the most valuable Charizard-GX card.

Sun & Moon: Promo Series (SM60)

Promo Series (SM60)

Available in a standard size and a jumbo size (see jumbo prices below), this was the full-art standard version of the incredibly popular rainbow shiny 150/147 from the Burning Shadows set.

Sun & Moon: Hidden Fates (9/68)

Hidden Fates (9_68)

Released with Hidden Fates in 2019, this standard full-art Charizard-GX has the flamethrower attack along with the Flare Blitz GX attack. It was re-released with the same artwork for the Battle Academy deck.

Sun & Moon: Promo (SM211)

Promo (SM211)

Despite the basic artwork, this card is quite popular. It’s sold in Hidden Fates tins as a promo card, and the further we get from the release date (2019) the higher the value will become. It’s worth hanging onto if you have one.

Shiny Charizard-GX Value

At the time of writing this article, there’s only one ‘shiny’ Charizard-GX card which was released in the Shiny Vault collection, a subset of the Hidden Fates expansion. As the Charizard-GX is naturally a rare card, always printed with full-art, all cards on this page are ‘holo’ but it’s this design that’s undeniably shiny.

Sun & Moon: Hidden Fates, Shiny Vault (SV49)

Hidden Fates, Shiny Vault (SV49)

This shiny Charizard-GX is one of the most flaunted cards on this list. There’s no shortage of Pokémon fans posting photos of this card on Instagram! In mint condition, it’s quite beautiful even though it’s shiny rather than rainbow.

Rainbow Charizard-GX Value

Rainbow cards are visually shiny and glint, like a holo card, but are also rainbow in color. So far, there’s only one Charizard-GX that’s printed in rainbow, which is the Burning Shadows expansion version. It has one of the highest values, so if you find this card make sure you keep hold of it (or auction it off).

Psst. If you’re looking for the rainbow Charizard-GX tag team, scroll down to the tag team section below.

Sun & Moon: Burning Shadows (150/147)

Burning Shadows (150_147)

Interestingly this rainbow card was released before the standard full-art version. It’s part of the first set to include GX cards, and thanks to the beautiful design, it’s highly sought after.

Jumbo Charizard-GX Value

Jumbo sized cards are often released as larger versions of promo cards. For images of these cards, just check out the standard sized cards! To make it easy to locate them, they have the same identifying numbers.

While that’s great for identification, it can make purchasing the cards a little more difficult. Make sure you read online descriptions carefully, so you don’t purchase a standard size when you want a jumbo, and vice versa!

Sun & Moon: Promo Series (SM60)

This is the first jumbo-sized Charizard-GX that was released. It’s better identified as the black star promo card and is literally identical to the regularly sized SM60 – same art, same moves, larger size!

S&M Promo Series (SM60)

Sun & Moon: Promo (SM211)

S&M Promo (SM211)

Another jumbo version of a standard full-art Charizard-GX. This promo card is, again, totally identical to the regular sized version just in a larger size. It’s rarer than the standard sized version but isn’t the most valuable Charizard-GX on this list.

Sun & Moon: Promo, Detective Pikachu (SM195)

For the standard-sized card version, see below. Released for the celebration of a certain Ryan Reynolds movie, this card is jumbo sized and is quite popular, even though the style in which Charizard is drawn is a little controversial.

Promo, Detective Pikachu (SM195)


Sun & Moon: Promo Series, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (SM201)

This is a tag-team card, meaning it features two Pokémon at once for higher stats and more powerful attacks. As this was a promo card, a jumbo version was also released. For the value of the standard-sized card, see tag teams below.

Promo Series, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (SM201)

Detective Pikachu Promo Charizard-GX Value

Released in 2019 to coincide with the release of the Detective Pikachu movie (which we, personally, think is an epic movie) this promo card is sold in regular size and jumbo size. If you have the entire case file, in the original packaging, you’ll get a higher price for this beauty.

Sun & Moon: Promo, Detective Pikachu (SM195)

S&M_ Promo, Detective Pikachu (SM195)

The artwork of this card shows a Charizard stylized like the Pokémon from the movie, rather than a traditional Charizard. The GX attack is Dreadful Flames – like all GX attacks, it can only be used once in a game.

Charizard-GX Tag Team Value

During the later phases of the Sun & Moon release, these ‘tag team’ cards were created. On each card you’ll find two Pokémon teaming up to give you more powerful stats and attacks. First, Charizard was paired with Reshiram, followed by Braixen.

As with other Pokémon cards, multiple prints were issued with different artwork. The best way to differentiate them is with the card identifying number in the bottom left-hand corner.

Sun & Moon: Unbroken Bonds, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (20/214)

Unbroken Bonds, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (20_214)

Reshiram is another fire Pokémon, so this card really sets the game alight. Illustrated by Mitsuhiro Arita, it shows the Pokémon side by side as they head into battle. This formidable card was popular throughout the Sun & Moon era, into the days of Sword & Shield.

Sun & Moon: Unbroken Bonds, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (194/214)

Unbroken Bonds, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (194_214)

With the same stats and attacks as the previous card, this version has different artwork, showing Charizard and Reshiram together once again. It’s more popular than the 20/214, but nowhere near as revered as the rainbow shiny that’s coming up next.

Sun & Moon: Unbroken Bonds, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (217/214)

Unbroken Bonds, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (217_214)

It’s a shiny rainbow card! If you find this card, it is insanely valuable. Those that are graded PSA 10 (gem mint) will fetch very high amounts if you sell it on eBay. We absolutely love this one.

Sun & Moon: Promo Series, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (SM201)

S&M Promo Series, Reshiram & Charizard-GX (SM201)

Sold with a mini figurine of Reshiram and Charizard, this is a promo card from the Sun & Moon promo series. It has Outrage, Flare Strike, and Double Blaze GX as it’s attacks. You can also find a jumbo version

Sun & Moon: Cosmic Eclipse, Charizard & Braixen-GX (22/236)

Cosmic Eclipse, Charizard & Braixen-GX (22_236)

After Charizard and Reshiram, you find Charizard and Braixen teaming up at the end of Sun & Moon to create this tag team card.

Sun & Moon: Cosmic Eclipse, Charizard & Braixen-GX (212/236)

Cosmic Eclipse, Charizard & Braixen-GX (212_236)

This full-art card shows the tag team at their finest. It’s not quite as lustrous as the rainbow that’s coming up next in our list, but it’s still a collectible item that collectors will pay considerable amounts for.

Sun & Moon: Cosmic Eclipse, Charizard & Braixen-GX (251/236)

Cosmic Eclipse, Charizard & Braixen-GX (251_236)

The only rainbow version of the Charizard and Braixen tag team, this card is highly sought after and ensured the Sun & Moon expansion went out with a sparkly, rainbow bang.

What is the Mega Charizard-GX Value?

A lot of people ask us about this, and it leads to a lot of confusion. So, let’s straighten out the facts.

Currently, there is no Mega Charizard-GX! However, you can find a Mega Charizard-EX as part of the Evolutions and Celestial Storm expansions. EX is not the same as GX. In fact, GX was created to replace EX cards.

Mega Charizard can also be symbolized on the cards by the letter ‘M’ before ‘Charizard’ rather than the word mega. For example, this “M Charizard” from the Flashfire Set is a Mega Charizard. It has an average market price of around $170.

Pokémon-GX Cards vs Other Pokémon Cards

Pokémon GX Cards vs Other Cards

To work out what type of card you have, first look at the bar at the top of the card. This will give you the name of the Pokémon. If it’s followed by GX, you know it’s a GX card. If the name has an ‘M’ before it, you know you’re looking at a mega Pokémon.

Identifying the numbers of the card will help you work out the exact value. These are often in the bottom left-hand corner of the card. Plug these numbers into eBay, Mavin, or Pokémon Wizard to find identical cards with values.

What Pokémon Card Type is Most Valuable?

Value is tied closely to rarity, so the rarer the card, the more it is worth. GX cards tend to be rarer than standard cards, so they’re higher in value. You should also look for:

  • Cards with printing errors – these are quite valuable, like coins that were incorrectly minted.
  • Rainbow cards – these sell for the highest amounts.
  • Shiny cards – in general, a shiny card is always worth more than a non-shiny equivalent.
  • Limited releases and promos – the Detective Pikachu card is a good example.

Factors That Impact Card Value

If you want to know whether your card is likely to sell for a lot of money, you need to consider these factors:

  • The age of the card – the older it is, the more likely it is to be rare. Newer cards just entering circulation take time to become valuable.
  • The condition of the card – any visible damage instantly lowers the value.
  • Whether it has been evaluated – send your card to PSA or a similar service so it can be professional verified. Any card that has PSA 10 will sell for a lot of money.
  • Additional cards or items – some promos come with additional cards, metal cards, and even figurines. If you can include these with the card you’re selling, you can ask for a much higher price.
