Totally depends on what cards you're talking about, but generally speaking, Japanese Pokemon cards can be worth more due to their limited availability outside of Japan and, sometimes, they have unique artwork not found on their American counterparts. That being said, there are plenty of American cards that are super rare and fetch a high price too. Rarity, condition, and demand are the big players in card value.

Just gonna drop this here: Japanese cards are cooler. End of story.

Honestly, it fluctuates. Some American exclusives are worth a ton, while Japanese promo cards can go through the roof. Check the market!

In my experience, Japanese Pokemon cards have a slight edge in value, especially the older, rarer ones. I've got a few in my collection that were appraised higher than their English versions!
