The first two HG/SS Boosters I bought, one had the top half of Lugia, the other the top half of Ho-oh

Now I just need the bottom halves

Depending on what Ampharos it is, it can probably be pretty useful. But that is if you're playing and not just collecting.

I got two booster packs the other day. Nothing really special, sadly. The two holos ended up being Dodrio and Carnevine, and nothing really appealed to me.

That Conductivity PokeBody is beast if you know how to use it right. ^_^

Ho-oh LEGEND is meh for Arrest stuff, but still pretty hard to get both halves in so few packs.

Those were actually three very good packs. You should consider yourself lucky that those three were in your first three packs.

I think a couple of my packs this week contained the Raichu from HGSS Triumphant.

I bought a plethora of CoL and SUpreme Victors packs (through 3 B/W tins and a 3booster pack).

I got a Staraptor FB Lvl X and a Absol G Lvl X out of the 4 Supreme Victors packs. I had a fair few CoL packs (~10) but out of them I got both Groudons (foil, reverse foil), Gyarados (foil), Kyogre (foil), and a foil metal energy (which is apparently pretty valuable??)

I'm happy regardless, the reverse foil groudon and foil gyarados were in the same pack too :D

SO I bought 100 cards (common/uncommon, no dupes) from eBay and they arrived a few days ago, I just didn't want to double post. Well I am now :D

Most of it isn't anything to phone home about, just stuff that will help me along with my collection, however I did get a French Geodude xD

Went straight to my rares/foils folder for lols

Nice find, dude. (b'-')b

I totally forgot to post here about me finding the B/W theme decks and also buying about 15 packs at the same time I got the three theme decks. They look pretty decent for theme decks.

Also, some terminology change is coming along with the new sets and the functionality of Potion is changing to heal 30 HP instead of 20.

I'll post a pic on Sunday, there is a fair on tomorrow and there's often large bags of pokemon cards donated (church fair, mostly just "grown out of it but legit" stuff), and cheap too :D

So I'll wait till after that to post.

My, it's been quiet here. So how about I note my pulls from the first Black and White pre-release I've gone to (we've got a second one next week as well, so that's a bonus).

Holos:
Emboar (Inferno Fandango)
Klinklang

Rev Holos:
Zoroark
Reshiram
Sandile
Simipour
Ducklett
Serperior (Royal Heal)
Servine
Deerling

Rares:
Mandibuzz
Scrafty
Darmanitan
Swanna
Sawsbuck
Maractus

I put the abilities next to my Serperior and Emboar since there are 2 different version of both pokemon, 1 with an Ability and 1 without. As you can see, decent pulls (although Serperior was unused in the tournament due to me not pulling a Snivy and I didn't get one in the 2 extra packs as well) but someone there pulled 2 Ultra Rare Reshiram one in his original 6 boosters and the other in his extra 2.

Wow, this section of the forum is completely dead, lol.
Anyways, I recently got back into collecting (not playing) thanks to Primetimepokemon's and pokepic's videos D:
I'm starting from scratch, since all the cards I had as a kid were lost.

I bought a fossil booster box (my favorite set, also loaded with nostalgia) and it came yesterday.
So far i've opened 24 of the packs (i'm trying to make the awesome last as long as possible) but I promised my brother i'd wait for him to get home from school to open the other 12.

So far the rares i've gotten are:
Holo = Aerodactyl, Articuno, Ditto, Dragonite, Gengar, Haunter, Kabutops, Magneton, and Raichu.
Non-Holo = All except Aerodactyl and Muk.

So to complete the set all I need is those two non-holos and then a holographic Hitmonlee, Hypno, Lapras, Moltres, Muk, and Zapdos.

I really want a Base Set or Jungle booster box, but the Base Set one is sooo expensive and the Jungle one is more than i'd like to spend.

There was nothing. Followed by everything. Swirling, burning specks of creation that circled life-giving suns. And then we reached to the light.

I think it's pretty cool that you found a Fossil Booster box, though it's worth more unopened than having the complete set is right now. :x I don't blame ya for wanting to open the packs, though. Unopened packs are just too tantalizing to me and I often just have to open them. It's the thrill of the pack! |D

I have no idea what those will be called. According to the Bulbapedia article on the set, they are just very rare foils, but the foil patterns are quite inspired by the LEGEND cards from the HGSS sets. They're just special versions of their rare holo counterparts.



As for myself, I bought these five off of eBay:

Rocket's Moltres First Edition Gym Heroes
Spoiler:


Gardevoir Lv. X Secret Wonders, Mewtwo Base Set and Sabrina's Gengar Gym Heroes
Spoiler:


Japanese Dark Alakazam Team Rocket, Mewtwo Vending Machine (supposedly an error version, got more pics of it in the next spoiler - not necessarily any higher quality because I can't keep my hands still)
Spoiler:


More vending machine Mewtwo
Spoiler:












And some of the rares/more interesting cards from my most recent bunch of packs bought:

HGSS Triumphant:
Banette (reverse foil)
Ditto
Black Belt (reverse foil)
Rapidash
Black Belt

HGSS Undaunted:
Darkness Energy (Special Energy)
Umbreon (reverse foil)
Vileplume
Sage's Training
Raichu (Prime)
Vespiquen

Call of Legends:
Lost Remover
Bayleef (reverse foil)
Tyrogue
Interviewer's Questions
Darkness Energy (Special Energy)
Ampharos (reverse foil)
Ninetales

Platinum Supreme Victors:
Spiritomb C
Drifblim FB (reverse foil)
Chimecho

Platinum:
Crobat G
Cacnea (reverse foil)
Blissey
Looker's Investigation

So now I have a lot of that wonderful Roast Reveal Ninetales thanks to Call of Legends re-releasing it. ^_^;;

Nice! Double Blastoise in the Platinum pack! :D

That's seriously some pretty good luck, in my opinion. I quite like playing with the Platinum Blastoise in decks.

You got a couple other pretty good cards, too, in your other packs!

I opened a Zoroark box tonight, nothing spectacular but I got two foils from the Call of Legends pack (Umbreon and Houndoom), and a reverse Gyarados, which means I now have, from CoL, both versions of Groudon and Gyarados, and I think nearly every foil card :D

I have a B/W Booster Box on my shelf which I'm opening tomorrow, pretty excited!!

Managed to get me the Zekrom tin booster box, and I got the rare Reshiram card, and few holographic cards. By the way, anybody find Purrlion's card artwork strange?

Opened my B/W Booster Box today, obviously it was all pretty good, but notably I got both the reverse and foil versions of both Emboar cards, and I got both reverse and normal versions of Klink, Klang, and Klingklang. Got both the fullcard holos but not the Pikachu, and I'm pretty disappointed that I only got one Serperior, I wanted to build a Snivy deck but looks like it's going to be a Tepig deck for now. Least I can use Reshiram in that :D

There are two cards I have the reverse of but not the normal version, both rares:
Samurott (32)
Bouffalant (91)

All I am now missing:
Serperior (6)
Liepard (67)
Water Energy (107)
Pikachu (115)

So overall it was pretty good if I am only missing 4 cards. Obviously there are still lots of reverses to get, but I was lucky not to get any duplicate reverses so I'm on track there too!

You heard it here first, it's not on Youtube for 2 weeks yet

I bought my first round of B/W boosters today... I think I pulled 2 or 3 Zekrom as the rare out of 8 of the packs, and I know I got the special foil version of it in a different pack.

It was a long time ago, (2 years) but i did get really lucky on a booster pack once.

In the booster pack, i found a Very Rare Holofoil Luxray, LV51. I also found Luxio but no Shinx

Anway, in that same booster pack, There was Shaymin LVX. And a 2 Piplup+Prinplup. Unfortunatly no Empoleon.

In the second booster pack, i obtained LV52 Crush Grip Regigigas and a Regirock (RIP) I also obtained Team Galatic's LV45 Houndoom and two Unown, J and ?
I also got LV42 Lucario but no Riolu

And, uh, that's it. Now shoo!
Presently gone from PC. Not sure if I'll ever return.

Well, considering that, with your best luck, you can only get two rares or rare holofoils in a pack, you couldn't get any more rares in that pack since you already had Shaymin Lv. X and Luxray in there. (b'-')b

Anyway, last round of B/W packs I bought, I pulled a surprising amount of Zekrom. I think I got 4 in 10 total packs. XD; Waaaay too many.

Zekrom fullcard or normal? I've got a Victini Box, Album box, and the tins on my shelf. I need the Pikachu, a Water Energy, Samurott nonAbility, Serperior Ability, and Bouffalant rare. Plus reverses of course, lots of them.

CMON!!!
