So right now it costs 100 water gems for 1 Totodile egg for example, it's been like this since the start of the game I think and it needs an overhaul. 10 gems for one egg seems more reasonable, because Gems don't have too many uses atm (the Kalos pokémon, Gem Cauldron and Ditto/Birds).

It would boost the economy and give people an incentive to play the Royal Tunnel too.

No support.

All of the Gem Prices are actually pretty reasonable and were lowered a year ago.

The reason the Egg Prices are so high is most likely to keep everything in order and give things value, as a Shiny Starter is much more valuable than an Easy Shiny. Also, you can obtain eggs from the Daycare and Tall Grass, even the Lab in rare cases.

Makes sense, but still 80 or 100 gems is a lot. If a gem costs 500 PD you are paying 40k-50k for one egg, that's never worth it. I guess it's not for shiny hunts then

As long as you decrease the prices of everything, not just a couple rarities, then you can preserve that division of value by rarity. Gem collector prices are too outrageous for me to even consider using him as a source of eggs for a hunt. Unless, of course, his purpose isn't to help get eggs for hunts. I don't know what other purpose he would serve, though. Eggdex? But even so, getting one starter egg for the eggdex is too expensive. So I don't know, he's just kinda there.

Edit: And if you take into account the big picture - breeding rates, tall grass spots & time, etc. - then the rarity is preserved anyway.
