Picked up a Lunala Sun & Moon ETB last weekend, and just got a chance to open and post it today.

Pack 1: reverse holo Incineroar, Masquerain, Timer Ball, Ultra Ball
Pack 2: Bruxish, Rare Candy, Hau
Pack 3: reverse holo Palossand, Shiinotic, Big Malasada
Pack 4: normal rare Decidueye, Crushing Hammer
Pack 5: reverse holo Tsareena, Cloyster, Repel, Timer Ball
Pack 6: reverse holo Timer Ball, Solgaleo GX, Switch, Pyukummuku
Pack 7: reverse holo Great Ball, Toucannon, Exp. Share, Lillie
Pack 8: Bewear, Araquanid, Professor Kukui

Not a great ETB, but not completely terrible, either.

    Hey Everyone!

    I used to collect Pokemon cards back in 1999 for a few years as a kid and just recently got back into collecting, I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a sealed 1999 Jungle Booster Box in amazing condition. All corners are flawless and still sealed, checkout the un-boxing of it and let me know what you think!

    I went to my only Burning Shadows prerelease earlier today.

    Here's a summary of the notable pulls for new Burning Shadows cards between the Prerelease kit, the 3 packs I won, and the 10 packs I bought.

    Pokemon:
    1x Pre-release promo Zygarde
    4x Seviper (for Poison damage cheese in casual matches depending on how the Ability stacks)
    2x Ribombee (for casual Energy Accerlation)
    3x Meowstic
    2x Toxicroak
    1x Lycanroc
    1x reverse holo Eelektross
    1x Shiinotic
    1x Alolan Ninetales
    1x Palossand
    1x reverse holo Turtonator
    1x Bewear
    1x Slowking
    1x Araquanid
    1x Scolipede
    1x Kingdra
    1x reverse holo Diancie
    1x Darkrai
    1x Passimian
    1x Electivire
    1x Persian
    1x Charizard GX

    Trainers:
    3x Po Town
    3x Lana
    3x Weakness Policy
    3 x Super Scoop Up (1 reverse holo)
    2x Rotom Dex Poke Finder Mode
    2x Escape Rope
    2x Sophocles
    2x Olivia (1 reverse holo)
    2x Tormenting Spray
    1x Plumeria
    1x Wishful Baton
    1x Acerola
    1x reverse holo Guzma

    Not really a great haul for opening 16 packs.

      I only the Espeon box recently, the best card I got was the Espen and Umbreon promo in the front of the box. Wish they'd put the pins in cheaper products. Or at least filled them with newer packs.

        Opened a login bonus pack of Sun & Moon on the TCGO.

        Pack had some pretty good contents: Crushing Hammer, reverse holo Shiinotic, aand a Lurantis GX. Not a great GX, but with how limited my collection is on the TCGO, I could make it work.

        Bummer on the pulls. I do hate when that happens.

        That's actually some pretty crazy luck. Also, FYI, the code cards are completely random in terms of pack contents on the TCGO.

          Well I got the Umbreon box today, I was able to price match it and had a 5 dollar off coupon so I guess I can feel better about getting 6 non holo rares a second time.

          Also paying 30 dollars for a pin. I really wish Pokemon would go back to making pin 3 packs instead of these 40-50 dollar packs.

          Just redeemed a Pikachu Battle Heart tin code. Gave me a Pikachu EX deck and all its contents are tradeable.

          Maybe it's just my imagination, but I still do see pin 3 packs at Target, though those might be older stock for older sets.

          But $40-$50 sets? I would've thought the pins were getting thrown in the $20 or $30 boxes.

            Right now Pokemon is releasing them in these 40-50 dollar boxes, m Tyranitar, m Camerupt, m Beedrill, Espeon, Umbreon, Crobat, the Alola starters and coming up the Kanto starters.


            They did put the Johto dogs and the Kanto birds into 3 pack blisters, but a majority of these pins are only available in the big packs that come with 6 packs, only 2 are the current set, a jumbo card and a promo or two. Think in the future I might look into buying them on ebay.

            I see a lot of people complaining about pulling nothing in these boxes, maybe there is something to it. I've only bought one myself (Decidueye GX Box) and only got 1 holo rare.

            If you really like collecting the pins, a few get released in 3 pack boxes which are cheaper. If you can find the Generations boxes from last year, they're really fun packs to open. I bought two (Meloetta and Arceus) for £7 each last month and got two EXs in the packs.

            I think my next pin box purchase will be the Tapu-Lele one coming out soon.

              Hey, not sure if this is the right spot or if I should have made a new thread for this. I just need some advice , I got some Platinum and HGSS booster packs, one theme deck (mind flood) and some kind of booster package with a coin, a promo card and then there are 3 booster packs in it which two are HGSS packs and the last one I can't seem to know the name considering it is covered by the coin and the other pack. And I want to sell these things, is it better to open these packs, put them in plastic containers and sell individually or just sell them in packs as they are?

              Kind regards, Clueless guy.

                Just counted and here's all the pins I have, the M Tyranitar pin and M Camerupt pins were both released previously in smaller packs I believe so I didn't buy the large packs. Also not sure how I got the M Beedrill pin, didn't buy that box either.

                Opened a Plasma Freeze TCGO booster tonight. Rare was Hariyama, and the pack also contained a Shadow Triad.

                I have a feeling this list of pins puts mine to shame. IDK. I've never actually bothered to tally what I've got for pins and figures from the TCG.

                That's an amazing collection, any chance you've got a picture of them all?

                I wonder when they started doing pins, if it was only in XY era then you must have most of the ones made so far.

                I think pins debuted in some HGSS set, iirc.

                As for me, I redeemed a Lugia EX code on the TCGO for today's pull.

                This is your friendly reminder that "Secret Rare" cards in Evolutions take an Uncommon slot.

                Today's TCGO pack was a Sun & Moon booster. Rare was just Butterfree.

                  I took a picture of them and posted it on my Twitter but I'm currently on an ipad so I can't post pictures directly on the site. I usually post pictures to twitter then I copy and paste the direct link here so the picture appears on the site.

                  I hope they release more regular non mega Pokemon as pins, especially the eeveelutions.

                  Today's TCGO pack was a Plasma Storm pack. Rare was Ludicolo and I pulled a Plasma Frigate as well.

                    I was really surprised after opening my first Sun & Moon pack to get a Tauros GX! I did not expect that in my very first Sun & Moon pack.

                    My son was super excited to get a GX in his first Sun & Moon pack! {XD}

                    Today's TCGO booster was a freebie Steam Siege one from the Daily Rewards. Rare was Hydreigon and the Trainers were Steelix Spirit Link and Claw Fossil Anorith.

                      I buy packets once in a while, just to get some nice art. A few days ago I got three and my best pull was this full-art Sylveon from the Sun & Moon Burning Shadows pack. It's shining, too!

                      Very nice!

                      I opened a Burning Shadows ETB today:

                      Pack 1: Full Art Wicke, Escape Rope
                      Pack 2: Alolan Raticate, Super Scoop Up
                      Pack 3: reverse holo Toxicroak, Gyarados, Tormenting Spray
                      Pack 4: Turtonator
                      Pack 5: Meowstic, Rotom Dex, Escape Rope, Sophocles
                      Pack 6: Persian, Escape Rope, Sophocles
                      Pack 7: reverse holo Wishful Baton, secret rare Bodybuilding Dumbbells, Lana, Tormenting Spray
                      Pack 8: reverse holo Heracross, Toxicroak

                      Two very surprising pulls that were way better than my first 16 packs of BUS.

                      Redeemed a PsyCrusher deck code on the TCGO today.
