For many people, strategy guides were the only way to really have information on the game. I came from a rural area and didn't have dial-up until I was around 12-13. Plus they were just awesome collector's items -- bringing them to elementary/middle school and looking at them with your friends during free time was the best.
There must be some pretty good strategies in there.

If it was just a artwork book I'd be all in. I hate printed strategies. Can't be updated

With people making guides for free for almost every game out there, this is pretty much a collectors item for display

Yes. Did you know that Prima Guide for Pokemon Crystal: The Perfect Guide (2001) is now worth in between $40-80 pending on condition 😱MSRP is $14.99 USD/$19.99 CAN. GameStop sold it used for $5.99 back in mid 2000's.

I wonder if this is true for other strategy guides. I still have some from the games on ps2, gameboy, Dreamcast, etc from back in the day.

Edit: time to check ebay

....but why, there were some strategy guides that were horribly inaccurate back in the day.

The man isn't wrong. Some Guide books have multiplied in value many times over. It's not the same game, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Guide book is listed at a rather obscene amount.

I remember walking into a game stop that said they could not sell these to me because they were due for disposal. This was only a couple years ago. I was looking to do a 20 dollar to 40 dollar flip. I picked up a used one somewhere and sold it for about 40 as well. I was happy at the time, but looking at the prices now. It's worse then reminiscing about long sold Magic the Gathering cards!

I bought this at a slightly lower price using GS coupons months back. It's not a bad guide, but it was obviously written for an online format and then printed into book form.

Also, the pokedex is extra and not included in this edition. There is or was a printing error in the pokedex which makes people skip that. Just download a galardex app on the app store though.

Okay price, okay guide, skips a lot of stuff though.

They haven't included a Pokedex in forever. I guess they thought they could make extra cash since there are so many Pokemon. I think with gen 4 and on, the first guide was for the main game and the second was the Pokedex.

Since it's not clear and plenty of folks came back to pokemon in the switch gen S/S, I figured it was worth mentioning. Guides used to come with pokedexes. It's not like there are thousands of pokemon in Sw/Sh to go over, sadly.

Not all strategy guides were horrible nor completely inaccurate. The Perfect Guide for Pokemon Crystal for example has very little incorrect information which isn't justified to make it a poor one. It has a Pokédex, poster, tips, and overview of game. There are other guide like the one with 20 pages or so that is just too basic to hinder the full gaming experience. The perfect is practical and helpful enough to complete the game and collect all 251 pokemon. In sum, it was the old way of obtaining info which make the gaming experience authentic. Internet wasn't the norm. Since that game is now available for purchase by $10 as old school gamers wanted to replay it again without relying the internet.
