It costs, like, $50-$60 online. Most other games only cost like $25-$45.

Because Platinum is the best Pokemon game, obviously.
I think this is fine, however I’m open to any counter-arguments considering this got up to four flags.

It probably has to do with supply and demand. As of now, Pokemon Platinum is almost 10 years old, so there aren’t as many copies being sold as newer games such as Sun and Moon. Therefore, the price of these “old” Pokémon games are generally higher than that of newer ones.

But still DP were older than t and are like 10-20 dollars cheper
Maybe it’s because people want Platinum more than DP and therefore, demand goes up.
Platinum is the "peak" version of its trio, like Emerald and Crystal, hence the bigger price tag on today's market.
Yeah, Platinum > DP
Because, Platinum got all the Pokémon in DP. And also some newer ones, like the two Giratina's. PPT is more popular  because of this.

You might be looking in the wrong place. I got my copy of platinum for $15. My advice is to buy a used copy. They are much cheaper.

I even just searched "Pokemon Platinum" on Google and the first 5 listings are under 20 dollars.

I thought I did. Sorry man :(
I'll try to find you another one
