    I've noticed faded full art exs in XY packs before. Like they were running low on ink. Another english pokemon card print failure.

    Opened a single Guardians Rising pack I picked up at a comic store this weekend.

    reverse holo Pangoro, Salazzle, Altar of the Moone

    It was an okay pack.

    Quality's been spotty for a while.

    And back with another Guardians Rising pack. This one's from GameStop:

    Swellow, Aether Conservation Area, Hala.

    Going to be trying to remember to open and share the contents of at least one pack per day between here and the TCGO.

      Grabbed a second Guardians Rising ETB at Target today.

      Pack 1: reverse holo Liligant, Rayquaza, Bewear, Brooklet Hill
      Pack 2: Tapu Koko GX, Rescue Stretcher, Bewear
      Pack 3: reverse holo Roadblock Sudowoodo, Comfey, Rescue Stretcher
      Pack 4: Solgaleo
      Pack 5: Feather Dance Oricorio, Max Potion
      Pack 6: reverse holo Garbodor, Sharpedo, Energy Recycler
      Pack 7: Sharpedo, Energy Lotto
      Pack 8: Blissey, Max Potion, Energy Recycler

      Could've been as good as the other one, but still not bad overall.

        Who else is finding the Pokemon SM2 - Guardians Rising to have a whole lot of tasty pulls available?
        I was super pleased with what I got out of my Booster Box, and also happy they sorted the whole "mapping" ordeal.

        Have a look at the pulls!:



        Here is a link to my unboxing of these bad boys! Hope you like it!

        Please note that our YouTube tag does not use the whole video URL and only uses the stuff after the "v=" in the URL and before any "&" symbol (so, basically, it's juts looking for the video ID and nothing else). I've fixed this in your post for now.

            I wouldn't call this a "pull" but yesterday I won an auction for 55 base/fossil/jungle/team rocket set cards all in great condition for $11
            it came with a dark charizard which I really wanted

            Redeemed a code for a Guardians Rising pack from an email I got from TPCI about Magikarp Jump tonight. Contents:

            Rake It In Bewear, reverse holo Drampa, Swellow. Oh, and Alolan Vulpix.

            Nice pack luck. A tip I've got is to make sure you do what you can to not fade out from the mic, because there are points at the end of the video where you basically just cut out.

            Still counts as a pull because it's something you just got!

            Found a Steam Siege blister while cleaning. It's the one with the Floette XY139 promo.

            Steam Siege pack: reverse holo Gardevoir Spirit Link, Druddigon, Pokemon Ranger

            Not every pack can be a winner.

            Today's pack was an XY Evolutions blister pack with the XY163 Weezing promo.

            Pack contents: Mewtwo, Misty's Determination, Surfing Pikachu.

            Two rares in one pack was a bit unexpected, especially since the reverse holo was Charmander and that's normally what I'm used to seeing missing when I've got two rares in one pack. Happy to have a secret rare though.

              And my last pack before I leave for Texas to attend A-Kon was a single Guardians Rising pack. Only card of note was a normal rare Turtonator.

              opened up four booster packs today that i bought from wal-mart (primal clash, roaring skies, and the new sun and moon guardians rising deck). unfortunately, i didn't get good pulls out of the guardians rising packs, but i did pull a full art aggron ex from the primal clash pack. i'm gonna try to buy more guardians rising packs so i can pull an alolan form ninetales gx. ninetales is my favorite pokemon soooo i would really. like that lmao

                Late, but when I was at A-Kon, I pulled a Tapu Lele GX from a sealed draft I did. And then in my prize Evolutions pack I pulled a M Slowbro EX.

                Opened a few Japanese packs that my brother picked up at A-Kon and used to pay me back for gas and hotel money.

                In two SM2L packs, I pulled Chandelure, Trevenant, and Garbodor.

                In three 1st Edition XY11 packs, I pulled Yveltal BREAK, Yveltal, and Pokemon Ranger.

                Also, late with these, but I picked up two DEX 63/108 Darkrai EX, a full art Steven, FA Iris, and FA Skyla as singles at A-Kon as well.

                Opened a disappointing SM GRI booster today. Rare was Heliolisk and nothing else interesting inside.

                Opened a GRI 3 pack promo blister with the Vikavolt.

                Pack 1: reverse holo Supernatural Dance Oricorio, Mimikyu, Energy Loto (white back code card)
                Pack 2: reverse holo Altar of the Sunne, Vital Dance Oricorio, Rescue Stretcher (green back code card)
                Pack 3: gold Enhanced Hammer, Rescue Stretcher

                Was not expecting that Enhanced Hammer. Pic of it: http://i.imgur.com/yEi7I1N.jpg

                Picked up a Tsareena promo blister with just one booster in it, because dem legs. The booster pack was Guardians Rising. I pulled a reverse holo Salandit, blah, an Energy Lotto, and a Rayquaza, which is probably the most notable thing in the pack. Looking the card over, it is remarkably versatile in terms of deck building from what I can tell. It has a solid attack and a way to pull energy from the discard which is all pretty friggin sweet! Wish it had a bit more HP though.
