Picked up a bunch of stuff at a local game store today. Not the one I normally go to. This one's closer to home but is basically just a video game store with a small selection of Pokemon cards and doesn't host a league.

Darkrai GX Box: https://imgur.com/a/BhTKCwz

Some pretty intense pack luck in these pulls. Pulled my 4th regular art Rayquaza GX, a full art Hala, Sylveon GX, Vikavolt GX, Raichu GX, Mewtwo GX, M Glalie EX, Talonflame BREAK, and secret rare full art Alakazam EX from what I think was 26 total packs.

    I bought several packs of Pokemon Evolutions today from the Dollar Tree store and I got Blastoise EX and Slowbro EX. I notice that most Dollar Tree stores don't have Evolutions in stock anymore. Too bad...

    Small haul from NYCC! Got a few things but these are the standouts:
    Spoiler:

    I'm so happy about the Sylveon RC21/RC32! I've been looking for that one in decent condition for a while but all of the online prices seemed too expensive. :D

      Nice! The Sylveon ex has some great artwork. They definitely favor all the eeveelutions when it comes to illustration, and most of the time, playability as well.
      Not sure if anyone is interested in vintage pack openings, but if you are, I ended up grabbing a few, a few weeks back.

      Team Rockets 1st ed., fire red/leaf green, ex dragon, and two more ex packs I can't think off the top of my head
      (Also, wanted to make sure I was posting this correctly. I think I did, however, haven't been here in a few years, and don't want to go upset any mods for posting plugs)

      Not quite there with the URL, but I've corrected it myself this time.

      Basically, with your URL of https://youtu.be/x7BsUNgw4IU, you want to put everything after the last "/" in that shortened URL inside the [youtube][/youtube] tags.

      So what you type for this video should look like: [youtube]x7BsUNgw4IU[/youtube]



      Anyway onto my own get. This isn't cards themselves, but a pack of sleeves I imported from Japan. A set of Cynthia and Garchomp sleeves:

      Went to a Lost Thunder prerelease event yesterday, got two of the kits, which came with a total of 14 boosters.

      So I got a Magcargo GX, Full art Genesect GX and Faba, wasn't really thrilled by either of them so I managed to trade em away for a load of fighting cards. Which I am VERY happy with =D
      Spoiler:


      Also managed to pull these, the Giratina Promos seem to be pretty popular, let's see if I can trade them for some fun cards~
      Spoiler:


      I also managed to get a Scizor and a Houndoom, and I must say they immediately skyrocketed to among my favorite cards ever. (sorry no picture) In all 18 years of me owning cards, I never had a Scizor before. Plus those two cards have like some of my most favorite art ever.

        I've noticed that people from U.K kind of got the short end of the stick with the Dragon Majesty Premium Release.
        The U.S got Dragon Majesty super Premium collection Box whilst the U.K got Dragon Majesty Premium Powers collection box. We also got a collection box called Dragon Majesty: Legends of Unova GX Collection. DId people in the U.S or the rest of the world get the Unova collection box? would be interested in knowing.
        Not sure if I can post me youtube link but if you wanna look what I got in the premium powers compared to Dragon Majesty super Premium collection Box. I would be interested if people would agree that the U.K got the short end of the stick. Can I post a Dragon Majesty super Premium collection Box reference video I'm not sure?

        OMG that Xerneas is EVERYTHING TO ME. Seriously if PC was a platform for buying or trading, I'd give nearly anything for it. Love that card so much!! <33 And that Diance ain't no slouch either. I know I have a Fairy bias (obviously) but like DAMN that event sounds sweet as hell.

        Hey there Secret Anime Fan! No worries, your video is about opening and showcasing Pokemon cards - that's exactly what this section's for! :D (don & spirit dun kill me plz)

        You did get some really neat pulls out of the collection though! The Prism Lance, Prism Victini (2!), Dragonite GX.. plus just a bunch of other cool cards - I'd say you did fairly well for yourself! Hope you keep posting your cards and collections here cause I'd be really interested in seeing them! n_n

          Thanks for the reply I'm new to the Pokemon community so it's nice to find a place to talk Pokemon with people. Glad I posted in the right place too. Yeah, I got some good cards the Dragonite GX card is my favourite card from the set it may even be my favourite card I pulled so far. Well at least as an adult lol.

            Today I opened some new cards, I opened the Salamence GX box and also a Lost Thunder 3 pack blister. The 3 pack is my first time opening Lost Thunder.

            The 3 pack contained the Adventure Bag secret rare. The Salamence had an Altaria Gx and a Victini prism card.

            I haven't been opening cards much recently but I would definitely get a case if Pokemon decides to release the Ultra Shiny cards in English.

            It was a bit of an unexpected find. I spotted several other cards in the rares binder of the store I found it in that I want to buy, but I'll have to piecemeal buy them at the prices they're at, lol.

            Also picked up more singles from there this weekend. Rocket's Sneak Attack, Rocket's Hitmonchan, and the Southern Islands Mew:
            https://i.imgur.com/xVK12Hu.jpg

            And I opened up a Lost Thunder Elite Trainer Box as well. Full art Mina, Xerneas Prism Star, and Sceptile GX were pulled in it:

            I didn't do much last night, but I did open a Lunala GX box. Pulled just a Jirachi Prism Star from the packs for anything above a normal rare, though.

              Opened the rest of the tins and got an Umbreon GX full art and a Brock’s Grit Full Art, probably have 7 of those now but only ever pulled 1 Misty.

              I wish that Sylveon card had a full art version of that art. I quite like it and think the pattern would look quite nice based on full arts like the Meloetta EX and the Full Art Emolga.

              You ever gonna try flipping the excess Brock's Grit cards?

              Personally, I'd probably hold onto them for a few years and wait until a later value spike because they'll have been out of print for several years at that point.
