    They did. With the exception of the silver boarders, it looks just like the Japanese counterpart.

          Ahh the boosterpacks, what a good time in my young child's life

          I remember my biggest pull and "Wow! OMG I can't believe I have this card!" moment was when I went to school some day and a guy who was in my class, was bragging to me about how he obtained a Dark Raichu and that it was Ultra Rare and you will never have one blahblah, aaaand of course it was a attention-lie. But, when my dad gave me some money that afternoon to let me buy my first Team Rocket booster pack (they just came out then), I pulled a Dark Raichu!!! I remember being sooo happy and I didn't even had the patience opening my booster at home, so I did it in front of the store... I was stunned :D Then, the next day I did bring my newest addition to show the kids at school, but because Dark Raichu is in fact a SECRET RARE (I didn't know at the time being the kid I was) and the numbering is 83/82 that same guy said it was a fake and useless card because of that >.> but I knew better and he wanted to trade but I said no... to Everyone! :3 whaha
          I really didn't want to trade also because I really like Raichu and I really liked the art and all, the card was just too valuable for me I guess

          I still have this beloved card in my collection today, with this awesome memory everytime I look at this card :3 I really love the first card collections (Base set, Jungle set, Fossil set and Rocket set) mainly because of the awesome artwork, and I have all of these sets complete. I think it is too bad they don't draw the artwork like that in the old days anymore, although the full-art cards are really awesome too!

          Other great pulls I remember were Walrein Ex and Mew Ex :3 still have those, I always seem to pull cards of the Pokemon I really like and love and that were awesome to play the game with

            If we are going down memory lane i use to always open my booster packs from the base set and jungle and fossil packs right outside the shop too lol
            I got well excited one time when i got a venusaur and i also remember the time i got a base set Raichu i got mobbed at school for trades and then i cracked and some kid offered me 8 holo's for it and i traded that is the only trade i regret to this day really.
            I don't mind using rare cards now in card games i am running 2 decks right now that use most of the recent booster pack releases those being a Lugia Ex deck and another one being a Darkrai Ex and Darkrai X deck both kick some ass yet both still hold a weakness or two which is why i love the card game few battles ever feel the same
            Online right now i am trying to build a Darkrai Ex deck but struggling to land a few key cards but this morning i did add 3 colourless energies and 2 Darkrai Ex cards so happy days i guess.

              I finally broke down and bought the Fennekin box today from walmart. I kept looking at it every time I would pass them. I guess it was a good thing that I bought it. I wound up pulling a Landorus EX!

                  The first time I pulled a Mew EX, I tried so hard to incorporate it into my Ho-Oh deck. No matter what, I just didn't like the way it ran. I took it out and wound up trading it off for a bunch of older cards that I needed.

                    This makes me want to buy another kalos starter box. Yours had landorus ex and mine had FA Skyla. Great pulls be coming from these.

                        It's insane what luck those Kalos starter boxes have had for me.

                        Some people who've been to prereleases already have been! ;P

                        Though I'm not one of those lucky ones.

                          They are all from BCR. So people go out there and by those Kalos boxes with boundries crossed in them.

                            I'm just an average Jo here got to wait till the 6th like everyone else but at least i have the funds to buy a nice wedge of them not sure how many to get no doubt there will be promo packs and tins to follow so it might be wise not to buy a complete box of them like i was thinking then again re-selling some rare cards to cover the cost a little would be a smart move i am bound to get a few good pulls from a whole box of booster packs for crying out loud

                              I am so tempted to buy a Legendary Treasures booster box. I keep hearing about all these epic pulls from prereleases. Gah. I really really want to.

                              The Sylveon box, the new tins, the other two Kalos starter boxes. So many pretty things that I want to get my paws on!

                              In other news, I traded my friend a half art Cresselia for 20 reverse holos. XD none were rare, but there were two N's, a Skyla, and an ultra ball.

                                Well i thought my online deck was making progress and then i faced a trainer who schooled me twice and when i was randomly matched against him for the 3rd time in a row i had a hissy fit and gave up during the game lol

                                It made me wonder just how many bloody codes i will need before i can actually build the deck i want i have added another 40 to my collection of used codes now and the grand total is now over 200 which is pretty daft. If i was to buy a booster box...

                                just think of all those extra codes i would have

                                  you just need to trade to make decks. just buying packs is never enough.

                                    Only snag with that is to get the cards i desire i need something 'worth' trading and right now i only have 1 Ex card what i would trade with and i doubt i would get the card(s) i am seeking but i am not put off i win far more games then i loose and when i do loose i just get taste of what i am missing i am still making this deck i have never made one like this before so each match is progress towards it. Still not sure how the coin(s) work i seem to get more when i get spanked rather then win should that be in a close match or buy a country mile

                                      I bought the 2013 World Championship winning deck yesterday in town was pleased with that and the online reward with the code gives you 4 special trainer cards, cool 2013 sleeves and case and a cute red pikachu coin too

                                      I've always been wary about those... but if there are 4 special trainer cards you get through a code in the box, my curiosity is piqued. Have you found out which 4 trainer cards you get with that code?
