I wanted to add that what I meant by "not rare" is "not rare RIGHT NOW" because currently you can still buy them directly from Hasbro (on eBay) for $5.

Once that supply dries up and we're depending on finding them in the wild?  Yeah, at that point they are definitely going to be harder to find.  I don't know how hard to find.  But I know the earliest set of pearlies was in the store longest, while the last pearlies were only briefly in stores (and some stores didn't get them at all.)

It's so interesting to see what's common and uncommon for different people! I'll list from what I remember although I hadn't been in stores much then and I wasn't actively looking out for ponies, so this is just what I remember.
I only ever saw Twilight and Pretzel together in the packs which there were plenty of, and I believe I only ever saw one either Cherry Berry  or Meadow Flower (I'm not sure which) packaged with Applejack I believe . I never saw a Starlight Glimmer, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, or Coloratura. I'm not sure how common the nurse was since I never check Walgreens. And of course, I just found two of both Sapphire Joy and Sea Swirl at my dollar store  :P


Interestingly enough, they still have the Bon Bon/Sweetie Drops with the cutie mark charms in that Dollar Store as well (but I already have her)

Incidentally, Hasbro shop doesn't exist as an entity in the UK. Does it exist for any country outside of the US? Do they ship overseas from ebay? Because if not that's going to also affect price/rarity for certain sets in certain places.

I'll tell you in a minute. XD


ETA:
Oh Hasbro. Why doust thou torment us with crazy, oily haired ponies? Doth thy not know how gross it feels?

Okay, so I washed the ICK outta her hair and brushed it. It just got crazier. But its not slimy anymore.  Her tail is being especially difficult. At least ut suits the swirl part of her name. I'll try to straighten it out.

Oy! The tail hole stamper didnt quite finish punching a hole, so it punched one properly to the right.  >_<

It might be because she came from China, but my loose Sea Swirl thinks she's auditioning for Jem. She has a big puffed up mane and as a Jem fan, I cannot bring myself to brush it out...

It's not totally clear in this pic at this angle but you can sort of see it...

Erm, Sunny Rays I think her name is. I always get her name muddled up because I know there's Honey Rays as well :)  She looks decidedly perplexed by Seaswirl's hair. Either that or she's fed up of inhaling it. Seaswirl has since moved, though ;) Sitting on a matchbox with hair that looks like it's had too much hairspray didn't seem wise...just in case...

I saw a whole bunch of Sea Swirls at our local Big Lots today. I thought about grabbing a couple but I wasn't sure. Maybe I'll visit there again soon and go for it though.

She's pretty.

Besides the early days of G4, (Dewdrop Dazzle, Diamond Rose,etc ) the pearly wave ponies are my most favorite G four basic ponies.  Such a nice way to end out g four in my opinion. 
To think I wasn't even interested at first.  Coloratura and Sunflower are my faves, oh and Pretzl. Well all actually.

Yeah. The Pearlies, Water Cuties and Merponies are my favorite sets. Pearlies are just so classic and lovely. Plus the mane bore doesn't overwhelm them in numbers.

I'm glad she did.  :woot: She's such a pretty unicorn and I've always loved dolphins.

I too love the pearlies.  Unnngh, they just look so good!  I think I have Sea Swirl but am missing Sapphire Joy.  Did someone say Coloratura was shortpacked?  That's a shame, she is stunning!  I was lucky enough to pick her up at Target.

Yeah, they are actually one of the more diverse sets in terms of ratio of Mane Six to new ponies.

The store my sister does web work for had Coloratura's set and she said that Coloratura was one to a box and that she sold out pretty much the moment she hit shelves. She also said that there were more than one of Pinkie and Starlight Glimmer. I don't remember about Fluttershy.

Now of course everyone has Coloratura so she can still be found at other stores like Entertainer.
