Today's pack was a Shining Legends Mewtwo Pin box.

Pack 1: reverse holo Double Colorless Energy, Marshadow
Pack 2: reverse holo Damage Mover, Yveltal, Energy Retrieval
Pack 3: Super Scoop Up, Zoroark GX 53/73


Soild pulls. Good with rares.

Today I went back to GameStop, all clearance products were sold out. However I noticed the single packs for Sun and Moon and Guardians Rising were restocked.

I grabbed 5 packs from the middle of the row of packs from two hooks, 5 of each set. 10 total.

I pulled Poliwrath Holo, Drampa Holo, Gumshoos Gx, Wishiwashi Gx, Hala full art, Team Skull Grunt full art.

Weirdly I pulled 1 holo, 1 Gx and 1 full art trainer from each set... Not sure but I wonder if the rest of the packs have holos or better in every other pack on the racks... Probably not but kind of want to go back.


I have only pulled 5 full art trainers from sun and moon on but unfortunately 2 of them are duplicates including the Hala. Will probably buy the full art trainers I want singly online since those are my favorite cards from each set and they are extremely hard to pull.
I would think the odds are functionally random for mass-retailer singles, though that probably depends on how well each lot is mixed up before shipping.

    It actually happened before but at Meijer, a midwest store similar to Walmart. I went to one Meijer and grabbed like 8 Furious Fists packs from the front of the rack then four Phantom Forces. There were no holos but instead every 3rd pack had an ex or better. The next day I went to the other Meijers and just bought 13 Phantom Forces and got 3 more ultras. Got 2 secret rares and 3 full arts in those packs. I would think they would average 1 holo or better every 3rd pack like right out of the shipping box but its lucky when they have the ultras lumped together.

    I've had stretches where I've not even pulled a standard rare holo in 8 of those packs so it seems to even out.

      Got a triple-booster blister pack this weekend (Crimson Invasion).

      Pulled a Guzzlord GX. It was my first Ultra-Beast pull, so I was pretty excited.

      I have a blister to open which includes a Golisopod promo, a booster, and a coin.

      I also have a Decidueye GX premium collection box to open.

      I probably wont open those for a few days, as I am behind on cataloging cards that I've already opened.

      Edit: Just opened my booster and pulled a Silvally GX

        I opened a Tsareena Box and a Bewear Box. Walmart had them bundled together for 23 dollars. The Bewear box had a full art Metagross and a M Steelix Ex.

        I also opened a Darkrai tin, the little tin from the walmart toy section. They had new Blastoise tins there also but didn’t buy one because wasn’t sure what packs were in it. The Darkrai tin had a full art Glaceon.

        Finally I opened the new Zoroark shining collection box and got another Shining Jirachi.

        I’m not sure if I posted this but I bought 12 of the promos from the XY Premium Collection box, I bought all but N and Jirachi. Most of the cards were under 10 dollars each, they all ended up being 50 dollars. The full art N is going for about 30 dollars so i can see why the box is 100 dollars but I really only wanted the textured full art cards from the box.

          Yeah, seems like you took the more inexpensive route.

          The only time I have ever ordered singles in when I want a new cards for my decks. Otherwise, I enjoy the experience of opening boosters.
