Charcoal raises Fire moves by 1.1x right? Why, then, does Charcoal sell for $4900, when the other 1.1x items sell for $50?

rarer than the other 1.1x items, you mean? It is true you can only get one in Ruby...but you can buy them in Game Corner in FRLG.

You mean Game Freak just randomly decided to make Charcoal sell for $4900?

What about Black Glasses, Hard Stone, Soft Sand, Magnet, Mystic Water, Mevermeltice, Sea Incence, Silk Scarf, and Miracle Seed? You get those rather easily as well.

Anyway, that is the price that you buy it for in Azalea Town in GSC, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Yeah, that makes sense. I guess, then, that you can't buy the other items in GSC, only Charcoal? (I never played GSC, so I wouldn't know)

Yes, Charcoal is the only boost item that can be bought. For more information, use the GSC Shopping Guide on the main site, which can be found here: http://psypokes.com/gsc/shopping.php

No No No! It's not becuase of Rarity, its becuase Fire Types are just Awesome, and Game Freak Knows it, charcoal being more valuble is just a little clue.

They have gone up to 20% increase in this generation.

that's interesting. I didn't know that...but this occurs in RSE also, and I think GSC
