Went to a Legendary Treasures pre-release. Nice to see the EX's distributed more freely in the set, even if most are reprints. Manage to nab:

DarkraiEX, MewEX, ShayminEX, and Emolga.

Holos: Victini, Zekrom, Terrakion, and Rayquaza.

Reverse Holos: Solosis (common), Lucario (rare), Cobalion (rare), and Deino (common)

They did. With the exception of the silver boarders, it looks just like the Japanese counterpart.

Ahh the boosterpacks, what a good time in my young child's life

I remember my biggest pull and "Wow! OMG I can't believe I have this card!" moment was when I went to school some day and a guy who was in my class, was bragging to me about how he obtained a Dark Raichu and that it was Ultra Rare and you will never have one blahblah, aaaand of course it was a attention-lie. But, when my dad gave me some money that afternoon to let me buy my first Team Rocket booster pack (they just came out then), I pulled a Dark Raichu!!! I remember being sooo happy and I didn't even had the patience opening my booster at home, so I did it in front of the store... I was stunned :D Then, the next day I did bring my newest addition to show the kids at school, but because Dark Raichu is in fact a SECRET RARE (I didn't know at the time being the kid I was) and the numbering is 83/82 that same guy said it was a fake and useless card because of that >.> but I knew better and he wanted to trade but I said no... to Everyone! :3 whaha
I really didn't want to trade also because I really like Raichu and I really liked the art and all, the card was just too valuable for me I guess

I still have this beloved card in my collection today, with this awesome memory everytime I look at this card :3 I really love the first card collections (Base set, Jungle set, Fossil set and Rocket set) mainly because of the awesome artwork, and I have all of these sets complete. I think it is too bad they don't draw the artwork like that in the old days anymore, although the full-art cards are really awesome too!

Other great pulls I remember were Walrein Ex and Mew Ex :3 still have those, I always seem to pull cards of the Pokemon I really like and love and that were awesome to play the game with

If we are going down memory lane i use to always open my booster packs from the base set and jungle and fossil packs right outside the shop too lol
I got well excited one time when i got a venusaur and i also remember the time i got a base set Raichu i got mobbed at school for trades and then i cracked and some kid offered me 8 holo's for it and i traded that is the only trade i regret to this day really.
I don't mind using rare cards now in card games i am running 2 decks right now that use most of the recent booster pack releases those being a Lugia Ex deck and another one being a Darkrai Ex and Darkrai X deck both kick some ass yet both still hold a weakness or two which is why i love the card game few battles ever feel the same
Online right now i am trying to build a Darkrai Ex deck but struggling to land a few key cards but this morning i did add 3 colourless energies and 2 Darkrai Ex cards so happy days i guess.

I finally broke down and bought the Fennekin box today from walmart. I kept looking at it every time I would pass them. I guess it was a good thing that I bought it. I wound up pulling a Landorus EX!

The first time I pulled a Mew EX, I tried so hard to incorporate it into my Ho-Oh deck. No matter what, I just didn't like the way it ran. I took it out and wound up trading it off for a bunch of older cards that I needed.

I'm just an average Jo here got to wait till the 6th like everyone else but at least i have the funds to buy a nice wedge of them not sure how many to get no doubt there will be promo packs and tins to follow so it might be wise not to buy a complete box of them like i was thinking then again re-selling some rare cards to cover the cost a little would be a smart move i am bound to get a few good pulls from a whole box of booster packs for crying out loud

I am so tempted to buy a Legendary Treasures booster box. I keep hearing about all these epic pulls from prereleases. Gah. I really really want to.

The Sylveon box, the new tins, the other two Kalos starter boxes. So many pretty things that I want to get my paws on!

In other news, I traded my friend a half art Cresselia for 20 reverse holos. XD none were rare, but there were two N's, a Skyla, and an ultra ball.

Well i thought my online deck was making progress and then i faced a trainer who schooled me twice and when i was randomly matched against him for the 3rd time in a row i had a hissy fit and gave up during the game lol

It made me wonder just how many bloody codes i will need before i can actually build the deck i want i have added another 40 to my collection of used codes now and the grand total is now over 200 which is pretty daft. If i was to buy a booster box...

just think of all those extra codes i would have

Only snag with that is to get the cards i desire i need something 'worth' trading and right now i only have 1 Ex card what i would trade with and i doubt i would get the card(s) i am seeking but i am not put off i win far more games then i loose and when i do loose i just get taste of what i am missing i am still making this deck i have never made one like this before so each match is progress towards it. Still not sure how the coin(s) work i seem to get more when i get spanked rather then win should that be in a close match or buy a country mile
