I just bought a box of the Original Black and White set, as well as the Emerging Powers set. I'm looking to buy a new box but can't decide upon which one I should get. What's your opinion? Dark Explorers, Dragons Exalted, Noble Victories, Next Destinies?
It depends on what you're after. If you're trying to build a specific deck, then you should buy a box which has the most cards you need to build that deck. If you want to a buy a box which has lots of sought after cards then I would pick Dark Explorers, Dragons Exalted or wait until the new set is released and get a box of that.

Thanks, but I'm not sure which cards I'm looking for just yet. I'm just now getting back into the game. I used to play a long time ago and I used a Hitmonchan/Scyther haymaker deck... So I guess I'm looking for strong, quick, basic Pokemon that I don't have to evolve. Low retreat cost and probably some good abilities. If that's not vague enough.
Dark Explorers. Its got Raikou-EX, which only has 1 retreat cost. It also has Darkrai-EX, which gives anything with a Dark-type energy free retreat.
But honestly, I don't think its worth it to buy a box. if you're aiming to get Pokémon with low retreat and abilities, just buy them online.
Here's a list of Pokémon cards that meet at least one of your conditions.
Eelektrik (ability) $?
Garchomp line (((Gible, Gabite))) $?
Hydreigon (ability) line (((deino, zweilous, hydreigon))) $10
Altaria (ability) line (((Swablu, Altaria))) $5
Garbodor (ability) $1
That's all I can think of for now. Good luck with your collection!

I thought about buying the cards individually but I don't have any cards at all except those I just bought, nor do I know what any cards do... I guess I could look up all the cards online and then decide which ones I actually want. But still, if I'm talking about buying four of those rare cards for a deck, that's about 20-40 bucks anyways. Thanks for the advice, I might just go buy individual cards.
