It's not a common occurrence, but it's certainly possible. That is the set it's from, after all.

I went and picked up a pack of both a Plasma Storm and Plasma Freeze pack for the first time in over a month, but I think my string of good cards in Plasma Storm boosters has come to an end. My rare in the Storm pack was a Plasma Liepard, which doesn't look all that exciting. In my Freeze pack though, I was quite pleased with getting a reverse holo Plasma Metagross, alongside a Hariyama as my other rare. Since Plasma Blast is coming out in a couple weeks, I'll probably just hold off until then before I get any more booster packs.

The Toys R Us near me is closing, so they were having a major sale on cards (buy 2 packs, get 3rd free). I pulled a Celebi Ex, BC Blastoise, and full art Skyla. A glorious day indeed!

Okay, so I have a bunch of packs sitting in a stack that I am mostly unsure of the contents of, so I'll be posting those once a day in here until I finish opening them up.

First pack on that stack had the following:

It was a Plasma Freeze booster. It contained these cards:

Nidoran (F) 40/116
Tympole 24/116
Deino 75/116
Vanillite 27/116
Primeape 60/116
Reverse Foil Onix 61/116
Team Plasma Badge 104/116
Metang 51/116
Palpitoad 25/116
and....

Full Art Deoxys EX!

Well, that's a secret rare shiny print card. In recent sets, secret rares have the alternate coloring (aka the Shiny form) that the Pokemon has in the games. That's actually a black Charizard, because in the games, Charizard's "shiny" form is colored Black instead of orange.

The attack cost for that second attack is a misprint, though. It should be a Fire type energy instead of a Fighting type energy.

Also, CO, how did you manage to get the right Glaceon card?

It's an ultra rare - or "secret rare" card, and worth about $12. That was a good find - I'm still hoping for Latias or Latios full arts.

I think the ratio of "ultra rares" is somewhere between 1 and 3 per booster box, and a booster box contains 36 packs.

As for me, I have a Diamond & Pearl: Stormfront booster here in my hands, and it contains a reverse foil Vespiquen and a Tangrowth for its rares. Not overwhelmingly exciting, but not underwhelming, either.

Back again with another booster!

Today's booster is a DP: Stormfront booster, and the rare was a Magnezone.

I cant post images/links, but I got a Gengar Lvl.X and pikachu promo.
It was a 3 pack+ 1 promo, 10$ from walmart.

It is my first Lvl.X and valuable card I have since I started collecting a while ago.

I also got some other shiny cards(dont know what they're called) and rares.

Posting today's booster quick before bedtime!

DP: Legends Awakened, and the rare is Torkoal. The reverse foil is the reverse foil print of that same Torkoal.

I wish I had that!

Wait... it was the Vulpix that I traded away, not the Ponyta. Beautiful card, though! Lucky pull!

Anyway, today's pack is Legends Awakened and the rare was the Time Walk Azelf and the reverse foil was Oddish.

Bought two Plasma Blast and one Plasma Freeze. 1st pack of PB was snooze, 2nd pack had FA Dialga EX. The PF pack had a FA Ghetsis supporter card. Not bad for three loose packs.

I feel like PB must be getting generous with the EX and full arts.

I pulled a Genosect Ex full art in my ETB. For the booster box me and my roommate shared. We got:
-Virizion Ex
-Virizion Ex Full art
-Genosect Ex
-Dialga Ex Full art
-Girachi Full art
-G-Booster Ace Spec
along with a bunch of other fun stuff.

I thought my box with 2 full arts was crazy. This one had 5 Exs 3 of them full art.

Sweet mercy that's quite a haul can I have your luck with pulls?

Anyway, onto my next booster:

DP: Legends Awakened is the set.

Rares are reverse foil Regigigas and normal rare Victreebel. Not terribly exciting.
