Bought the last Next Destinies pack at a Walmart and pulled the 102/99 Zoroark. Not to shabby.

I received Glaceon, Espeon and Umbreon in the mail yesterday. I wasn't paying attention when I was purchasing it and got the foil Glaceon instead of the holo one but will still keep it and buy the holo one too. Are they legit?

Most sellers will not send you fake cards, and they are extremely easy to tell apart from real ones.

The reason I keep asking every time I get a new card is because I want to make sure I'm not being ripped off and robbed of money. I'm not terribly good at card identification so I just want to make sure. That foil Glaceon took me by surprise, I didn't know what to think.

Fake cards are usually a lot flimsier than real ones, and there will be some typos and stuff like that.

Looks like I forgot to mention it, but 2 weeks ago I was at AniMinneapolis and pulled a Deoxys EX from a box thingy I bought at a card shop that had its own dedicated room for their store and events at AniMinneapolis. That alone made the purchase worthwhile.

Bought two packs of Next Destinies as I didn't have much of the set and pulled a MewTwo EX full art, looks pretty cool.

Guys I got a pack including this card:

As you can see it's written "Magmar" instead of "Magby"...
I don't really know if it's a fake or not but I'll really appreciate if someone can tell me.

That font looks sketchy. Could you tell us what kind of pack you got it from? I also don't recognize the set symbol at the bottom. So right now, I'm debating on it being some funky promo or a fake. That font on the card leads me to believe the latter, though. And what country were these purchased from?

Edit: Just notice it has no weakness, but the x2 is still there. You know what, I'm gonna go ahead and call this out as a fake. There's no way this could be legit. And if it is, I'll have to think of something outrageous to do.

Someone bought it for me from India (idek how) & the cards came in a metal-ish container where I can read the word "Pokémon 6" & below it "HS Undaunted", the container had the pictures of Ash, Togepi & Minccino. There was also a small "shiny" sticker that changes color whenever you view it from a different angle that had the word "Pokémon" on it but not in the usual font, also a tiny silhouette of Pikachu was on it.
...Thoughts?

Definitely fake. There is no room for questions on that matter. That is completely the wrong font for it to be the real-deal.

The tin also sounds like fake, bootlegged merchandise.

I pulled a holo Blastoise from a Boundaries Crossed booster today. Sadly the other two packs I bought just had junk. Still that's the best pull I've had since I got the full art White Kyurem EX.

I just got two Keldeo EX tins today from Target. Not really a pull since I knew they were in the tin, but I had been needing them. They had some boosters too but I didn't get anything impressive.
