Spoilt myself today and bought a 1st edition fossil booster box containing 36 booster packs for $260 bucks, not including postage. I am awating a Jungle box to come to light on Ebay a well, There is one but they are normal and not 1st edition so would obviously prefer the first edition version. Not even going to bother with a base set 1st edition box because they go for several thousand i've heard. Cheapest 1st edition booster pack i've seen for base set is $160 that is in english. Not worth it if you miss out on a holo and i don't think i am willing to take that chance to get a trainer star card.

As mentioned above i bought a shadowless booster which was like $50 which is more around the figure i am willing to gamble.

Received five fossil boosters in the mail, not 1st edition stamp. Wasn't smart enough to realise that the 1st edition packs isn't that much more. But I got a 2 out of 5 holo strike rate. Got a Magneton fossil and a Lapras (which is my 2nd holo Lapras.

1st ed Fossil Booster box should be arriving tomorrow <3 and hopefully my base set shadowless booster pack.

I opened a box of Next Destinies today and pulled these:

FA Shaymin EX
Zekrom EX
Kyurem EX
Shiny Emboar

5 each of Prism Energy, Skyarrow Bridge, Pokemon Center, Cilan, Heavy Ball, and Level Ball
4 Double Colorless Energy

Reverse holo DCE, Prism Energy, Skyarrow Bridge, Pokemon Center, Heavy Ball, and Cilan

I also picked up a Mewtwo Collection box yesterday and pulled a normal Regigigas EX.

I'm getting three more boxes of Next Destinies tomorrow, so I'll post the contents of those boxes tomorrow.

EDIT: Opened the three boxes, these were my major pulls:

Box 1

Reshiram EX
Mewtwo EX
FA Mewtwo EX!
Shiny Zoroark

Yes, it is possible to pull two Mewtwo in one box!

Box 2

Regigigas EX
Mewtwo EX
FA Kyurem EX
Shiny Emboar

Box 3

Regigigas EX
Zekrom EX
FA Kyurem EX (again)

Definitely four awesome boxes overall. It's especially cool that three of the four boxes had a Shiny in them, as the odds were supposedly 1 every three boxes. (Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)

I just got Mewtwo EX from Next Destinies. Best day of my life. Also hit a Charizard Blister and Noble Victories Pack. Should I buy a booster box for next destinies?

They seem to change the pull rate of Shinies every time they bring them back to the TCG. For the Platinum series, the odds of pulling a Shiny is about 1 every 36 packs (1 per booster box).

Anyway, I picked up 12 more packs of Next Destinies today, and pulled a normal Reshiram EX.

I bought a Black and White tin, got these:



Then I bought a box of Next Destinies and got these:



Overall I'm quite chuffed! I'm not sure if I'll buy another box, as I think it pretty much completed the set for me (except for Luxray Holo, few EXs and Full arts) so I was quite lucky!

I bought Kyurem EX and Shaymin EX off a trusted eBay seller for about £8 each, but the Mewtwo EX is like £40-50 at the moment! Madness. So I'll probably have to wait for that to come down, or buy a few booster packs.

I think I prefer the look of the EXs rather than the full art ones to be honest.

What was the giveaway that they were fake? Because those are all actual cards and Pokemon.

The fact that the font is different, the spacing on the font is screwed up, and the spelling errors from time to time.

What about the little accents over the "e" letters?

And a quick test would be to compare Mesprit Lv. X to this Mesprit Lv. X card (ignore the PokeGym water mark at the bottom and focus on the rest of the card):

I remember my friend buying me a booster pack with 2 Duckletts in it (my favorite Pokemon) and then I ended up giving her 2 Audinos in return! (her favorite Pokemon)

That's a pretty nice swap there! The art on both of those cards is pretty nice.

Anyway, bought a Prime Challenge Box (had Espeon in it) and ended up pulling a Scizor Prime from one of the booster packs. And I also bought 2 Next Destinies boosters, but my best pull of those was the normal Reshiram, and I already have plenty of those from all the other versions of the card.

It's kind of rude not to tell us what the raffle is for. And if you don't add in what the raffle is for in 24 hours, I WILL delete your post, since that then falls into the realm of advertising your channel, which is not allowed here.

It's advertising because you offhandedly mention you have a raffle going right now on your channel, but you neglect to mention what the raffle's prize is. When you don't mention what the raffle's prize is, you're being discourteous to the discussion forum you've mentioned it at by drawing discussion away from their site onto your channel just so people can find out what the raffle is about. Most other mods here would've deleted your post and banned you for joining to advertise without even giving you a chance to mention what the raffle is for.
