kinda ruins the idea of trading in 3DS game or 2 for another one when the value is poop.

It doesn't make sense at all. Pokemon always gets a decent amount of units shipped(Nintendo doesn't want someone to get left out). So I'm not sure why trade in value is so high. It's not like Tetris DS or marvel vs Capcom 2 (ps2 version before digital release).

Nintendo games in general always hold a strong trade value, it doesn't mater what gen. GBA games were trading for higher than several DS games at one point too.

Also checking the CAG trade value list Pokemon Black/White trade for $17.. Ocarina of Time 3DS trades for $19. The majority of 3DS games trade for $12-$17.

really not much of a difference.

because it's Nintendo. Nintendo rarely drop prices on their games at retail so the trade value stays high ( particularly Mario and Pokemon titles ).

There was a point where Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green were trading for $23 during the DS's lifetime and they were selling used for $39.99. Leaf Green and Fire Red still sell for $29.99 pre-owned at Gamestop nearly 7 years later.

Trade in value is based entirely upon demand. Pokemon is in demand more than Rayman or DOA. It's also a fairly recent release. Not exactly sure why this is surprising.
