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's TCGO pack was a Fates Collide pack that was the bonus for logging in.

    Trainers in the pack were: Dome Fossil Kabuto and reverse holo Devolution Spray. The rare was Grumpig.

      Picked up a couple boxes from GameStop earlier today. The one I'm opening tonight is the Kommo-o GX box.

      Evolutions Pack: Charizard, Brock's Grit, Professor Oak's Hint
      Guardians Rising Pack: Chandelure
      Burning Shadows Pack 1: FA Necrozma GX, reverse holo Escape Rope, Mount Lanakila
      Burning Shadows Pack 2: Crabominable, Bodybuilding Dumbbells


      Full art was again a pleasant surprise.
