Yes, I also hope that this is temporary. The cash price of SGs, and the cost of items in SGs, makes sense if the rate at which you're obtaining them in-game is similar to the JP version. But some of the exchanges to obtain them were removed in NA or haven't arrived yet. Thus, the cash value of what you're paying for in Fresh Finds and SG sales ends up being unreasonable. I understand wanting to encourage people to invest in the game and put more value in SGs, but I think that the current model in NA has gone too far in the opposite direction.
Also, yes, transparency in whether these cosmetics will come back around would be appreciated.
