Hey, I got a pack awhile back that had 7 rares in it, and it was a real pack. Does anyone know why?

Are you sure it was a real pack? I don't recall any special packs having that number of cards within the last 4 years. Could you give more details?

I am 100% positive. I got it from target, and I am very good at telling real cards from fakes any way.

I believe it was from the first set to release dragon type cards. I got a sigilyph, golurk, garbodor, slaking, hydreigon, roserade, magnetric, and 3 uncommons, I forgot what they were.

That sounds like someone repackaged a pack. Did the pack come with a code card? If not, it was probably an altered and repackaged booster.

    It didn't look opened/altered, but I can't think of any other reason this would happen. It did have a code card. I didn't try using it because I never use those.

        Sorry, not fancy so I don't have a video. :P Anyway, I got a small blister sort of pack yesterday featuring a promo Lilligant and a Petilil, so obviously I picked it up...for the Petilil. In one of the packs, I got this!

        Spoiler:


        So happy! I also got two Boundaries Crossed packs and got a Keldeo and another Petilil. Overall, it was worth the trip to Target. Here's hoping to more Petilil cards though. And I wouldn't mind a Victini.

        Bought several booster packs last weekend. Only notable thing was a Skyla, and it wasn't even a full art. Bit of a disappointing run of packs for me of late.

          Bought a Darkrai tin and 3 Dark Explorers packs yesterday. The only things of note were Darkrai EX and a holo Eelektross (From one of the DE packs). Pretty disappointing.

          However I opened the Mewtwo and Rayquaza tins a couple of weeks ago along with some Pikachu promo 3-booster blister packs and managed to pull a Houndoom and Togekiss from Undaunted as well as Terrakion from that set with the gem symbol and FA Thundurus, Tornadus, and Reshiram... and the top half of Kyogre & Groudon Legend. So not bad on that front, ended up paying for itself unlike the Darkrai tin =)

          Back to ordering singles from now on though methinks

          I bought 3 packs last night - 1 each of Boundaries Crossed, Next Destinies, and Dark Explorers. Nothing special, other than a miscut Kyogre EX and a reverse foil Enhanced Hammer from the Dark Explorers booster.

          The miscut Kyogre EX:

              Today I picked up my first booster pack in 13 years. (a pack of Black & White) My pulls were:

              -Basculin
              -Trainer: Professor Juniper
              -Simisage
              -Venipede
              -Trainer: Energy Search
              -Zorua
              -Oshawott
              -Tepig
              -Gurdurr (Holo)
              -Zekrom (Holo)

              I haven't played the game in over 13 years, but the nostalgia of getting a booster pack tonight is tempting me into getting some starter packs and more boosters.

                Been buying booster packs lately, and I am probably going to buy some more soon. After that though probably not for a while. Nevertheless, out of the seven or so packs I've gotten I didn't get anything too great. My best ones (which probably aren't even that great in gameplay idk) are:

                - Holo Reuniclus
                - Holo Thundurus
                - Holo Garbordor
                - Victini, but it was the Psychic one so idk.

                Other than that though got a bunch of Gothitas. I swear the time I get a pack a Gothita or any of it's evolutions I will be happy.

                Okay, before I post my picture of what I just got, this is now officially a "Look at what I just got!" thread for cool cards you've bought in singles that you want to show off.

                Now then, onto my picture:


                I bought all these at a local hobby shop upon discovering it was one of the few in my area still selling Pokemon singles in any form. The glorious acquisition of the visit was the Victory Medal from the Autumn 2009/2010 Battle Roads (so basically in September of 2009).

                I bought 8 packs of boundaries crossed today and pulled 2 holos (Scizor and Scolipede), a Celebi Ex (Which im really stoked on. Would have like the full art but still happy haha) and a Bianca Trainer full art. So not bad pulls .

                  I just got into the pokemon TCG and picked several things this past week

                  Decks:
                  BoundariesCrossed: Cold Fire
                  NextDestinies: Voltage Vortex

                  And then 4 BoundariesXd boosters and pulled a Celebi EX in the first pack!!! :D I didn't even know it was that rare at the time!

                  I also really needed a vileplume or bellossom (to round off the evolution set) and decided to break my budget and grab one more booster (my 4th BoundariesX'd pack this week ) and my rare was a non-holo bellossom :D

                  Unfortunately that's all I remember that I got right now ;

                  I'll have to update when I get in front of my decks at home.

                  I also ordered some singles off ebay... Just my favorite pokemon ; (stupidly I bought cards and then bought Voltage Vortex so I now have 3 pikachus and raichus V_V)

                  So Pikachu (rH), Raichu, Marril (rH), Growlithe, Archanine (H), and 4 Loppunies

                  I know they're all pretty common 8D but they're just my favorite pokemon/evolution completers and I wasn't planning to get as addicted as I am LOL. I figured I'd have one deck, a few boosters, fill in the holes, and be done ;

                  Yeah... that didn't happen.... I'm currently rabidly searching for a Psy/Grass deck theme deck >.<

                      Oh man, I need to find a place like that. Don't think there are any around here though.

                      I thought there weren't any left around here when I stumbled on them in this store.

                      There's another store nearby that deals in singles, but they don't put them on display.

                      I also pulled my first Ace Spec from a Boundaries Crossed booster earlier this week! Unfortunately, it was Crystal Wall, but at least there was a normal Skyla in the pack!

                        Yesterday I opened 10 boundaries crossed booster packs.
                        Got Holo vileplume and holo Emboar, **** pulls.

                        This morning opened 2 dragons exalted packs, Gigalith holo and Rayquaza EX!
                        My first EX and I was so happy it made the 10 packs sadness go away
