Today's TCGO Pack was a Burning Shadows one. Rare was just Rhyperior, nothing else worthwhile in the pack. :(

Just pulled a holo Charizard from XY Evolutions! Didn't think I'd ever get one of those again without buying a single, new or old lol. Also got a holo Poliwrath so that was exciting too. :)

Spoiler:

not my pic

Evolutions is quite the nostalgia trip pack for a lot of older players, I've noticed.

I agree. Those of us who collected the original base sets definitely target Evolutions if the opportunity presents itself. I mean, I certainly do at least! It was 1996 and the first of my obsession with Pokemon and collecting. I practically can't help it, lol.

I also pulled that bilingual Exeggutor too. Though, I don't know much about it other than it's a promo card.
Spoiler:

Lastly, I got an Ampharos from Steam Siege, 40/114 ... Yet another one Bulbapedia doesn't seem to have much info about. The holo is weird too. I mean, I think it's holo? It seems extraordinarily dim compared to even the newer cards. I can't really tell what it is, tbh!

Opened a Burning Shadows pack in the TCGO today. Rares were a reverse holo Raichu and an Alolan Muk GX, and the trainers were Weakness Policy and Po Town.

The thing about that Exeggutor is that the original was a promo card, but that one you pulled is classified as a secret rare for the English release, as are several other Imakuni cards in Evolutions. Actually some pretty crazy luck.

For that Ampharos, it's a function of the card art that makes it appear so dim.

Always reliable with the info. Thanks, Don. :)

I remembered seeing this Exeggutor card a long, long time ago.. so I pulled out some old cards from a binder of uncommons/dupes and it turns out I have an original Imakuni Exeggutor. The new one may be a lucky find, but mainly it jogged my memory and got me the old school one!
Here's the comparison shot:
Spoiler:
Also, while I was on hiatus I went hunting for some neat things so I might as well list those! Though I didn't pull them from any pack recently. All pics are particularly dreadful looking because I own a terrible phone and they're all in reflective sleeves. Sorry. :[
Here's that ever scandalous "swastika" Golbat Trainer:
Spoiler:

I took the picture just after I got it cause I was excited, lol.

A prerelease Misty's Seadra:
Spoiler:

And here are a few of my Charizards for fun:
Spoiler:

Left: The newly pulled Evolutions Charizard.
Middle: Lightly played Base Set Charizard, obtained a few years ago.
Right: A super messed up counterfeit Charizard. It's literally the worst fake I've ever seen and I got it as a child in second grade. A peer had given it to me for nothing after folding it in half lmao.

Nice find with the "swastika" Koga's Ninja Trick there.

I'm pretty sure I also have a prerelease Misty's Seadra but I can't say that with certainty.


AND since I'm here, just gonna open another Burning Shadows pack on the TCGO real quick: And Pulled a Machamp GX and the Acerola and Bodybuilding Dumbbells trainer cards.

        Today I went to Target and got some of the Mega Construx sets. I also got a Burning Shadows 3 pack. And 3 loose packs, they were in the 3.49 bin and mostly just older xy sets. (Lol my phone autocorrected xy to Zubat).

        Didn't notice until Igot home that the Flashfire was French. The other two were English Roaring Skies. I usually pull nothing from these thinking they are weighed. They definitely weren't the Roaring Skies had Shaymin Ex and Hydreigon Ex.

        The 3 pack had 165/147 Rescue Stretcher. Haven't opened packs much but the secret rates seem to be super common. I think I've pulled 6 or 7 of the new Sun and Moon secret rates.

        I opened a couple of the General Mills cereal box packs tonight.

        Got SM01 Promo Rowlet and SM03 Promo Popplio for the foils in each 3 pack.

        Opened up a Shining Legends ETB today. First card in each pack is the card in the rare slot.

        Pack 1: Manaphy
        Pack 2: Zoroark GX, Hau, Warp Energy
        Pack 3: Raikou, Great Ball, Venusaur, Ultra Ball
        Pack 4: 78/73 Mewtwo GX, Energy Retrieval
        Pack 5: 71/73 Entei GX, Lillie, Pokemon Breeder, Ultra Ball
        Pack 6: 39/73 Mewtwo GX, Volcarona, Damage Mover
        Pack 7: Keldeo, Pokemon Catcher
        Pack 8: Zekrom, Hau
        Pack 9: Palkia, Switch Venusaur
        Pack 10: Shining Genesect, Hau, Great Ball

        Are the pull rates with this set supposed to be this good? Or was this a lucky ETB with 4 GXes?

          I opened 2 Shining Legends Elite Trainer Boxes. I decided to collect the set since there's only 73 regular cards in the set. It's the first set I've collected since Evolutions. The other sets just have way too many cards to collect them.

          The first box was a dud with just an Entei Gx, a duplicate actually.

          The second one was better with another Entei Gx, a Zoroark Gx and a 75 Raichu Gx, actually the Raichu was the only new card and it's actually my second rainbow rare.

            I opened 3 Bewear Boxes and a Shining Legends etb. The Bewear boxes were 13.98 at Walmart, in other words in each box 2 packs and the promos were free. Was hoping to get some full art trainers from Guardians Rising, no luck there but did pull a bunch of ultra rares. The Etb was good too, got it at TRU, they price matched Gamestop which was 20 dollars cheaper....


            Bewear Box 1: Venusaur Ex, Steelix Ex
            Bewear Box 2: Volcanion Full Art, Turtonator Gx
            Bewear Box 3: Volcanion Full Art
            Etb: Mewtwo Full Art, Mewtwo Gx, Entei Gx, Zoroark Gx


            It seems the Shining Legends Gx pull rates are the same as Generations, but the Shining cards are rare.

              Today I opened 1 Shiny Legends Elite Trainer Box and one Burning Shadows Elite Trainer Box.

              I got from the SL etb Raichu rainbow rare, Mewtwo full art and a Mewtwo Gx, pull rates have definitely been increased for the GX's, but the shinings are as rare as secret rares. Unfortunately all are duplicates. I heard its common to pull a lot of the same ultra rares but then not find other ultra rares. Like I have Mewtwo's and Raichu's for days but Entei and the Pokemon Breeder are scarce.


              Anyways the other etb had the Rainbow rare Machamp and a holo Diancie. The Machamp was a new card.

              Yeah, rares like that tend to be regionally imbalanced for most sets so it's not surprising for Shining Legends to be this way.


              Anyway, another General Mills pack, another Litten.

              Got myself into a PR event for Crimson Invasion this Saturday. Started out with the Registeele kit (the only player out of 10 in total) and got myself 3x Registeele to use in the tournament.

              Though I did win.. I really ended up as a loser in terms of draws... while my friends gotten their hands on a full art Gyarados GX and several Ultra beasts... Well, let's just say that the rarest card I got was the promo Registeele (which is absolutely amazing, don't get me wrong)

              Really can't wait to get my hands on the new set! =D

              Little late to the game but I got some good hauls from New York Comic Con!

              Which are nice and all and I was able to haggle them down a bit, but the real piece I'm thrilled about is this baby:
              Spoiler:

              I over-payed for it kinda by a lot? But I got swept up in the moment and it was the last new/mint and I just had to have it. Ya'll understand I know I'm in good compulsive buying company lol.
