    Normally I don't post in this thread, but my luck today makes this an exception. Anyway, found some loose HGSS packs at K-mart, and bought 9 of them (that's all they had left, sadly). I notably pulled these:

    1 DCE
    1 Pokemon Communication
    1 Cleffa (I hear it'll be good next format, hint hint!)
    1 Ninetales holo
    1 Donphan Prime
    1 Lugia Legend (top)
    and TWO Ho-oh Legend (bottom)!

    No Collectors, but hey, still awesome pulls for 9 random packs!

    Something interesting to note, with the Ho-oh pieces I got today, I now have 5 bottom halves of Ho-oh, and only two top halves. Weird, huh?

      One day I went to the store and picked up the only 2 HS Triumphant packs there and pulled a Magnezone Prime from one of them!

      The price of those will just keep on rising.

      That said, I think I pulled a Magnezone Prime in one of my recent booster packs, myself.

        Professor-Oak.com is selling them for $45 but I think that is way to much. Who knows, maybe someone would actually pay $45 for a single card.

        That's actually about what they're going for on eBay at the moment. It's because it's got so much potential right now in competitive play.

          I also once bought a pack with two Triumphant and a Platinum pack and got a Palkia and Dialga Legend from one of the Triumphant pakcs and a Shaymin holographic from the Platinum pack.

            Not bad packs, considering gold star (more commonly called Shining Pokemon) cards were only printed in some Advanced Generation sets. They weren't printed at all in any set afterward.

              Bought my first two packs since I was in middle school and I pulled a Reshiram and a Charizard. I took this as a sign that I need to start playing again.

                I just recently bought a Black and White pack, and ended up getting a full art Zekrom. I don't plan on running a ZPS deck any time soon, but the card itself looks fantastic. Also pulled a Gengar prime a few weeks ago.

                  Yeah they're pretty cool, I can't wait for the English Red Collection Fullarts, they're fantastic (unlike the Emerging Powers fullarts )

                    Just bought about $20 worth of Booster packs at $2 each from my local card shop. Pulled a Magnezone prime, amongst others. I love when splurges pay for themselves.

                      Bought 8 or so Triumphant boosters today. Pulled a Nidoking reverse, a Drapion reverse, an Absol Prime, a Machamp Prime, AND the half of the Palkia/Dialga Legend set that I was missing. Crazy day!

                        Pretty much bought my first pack of real cards the other day (I've always gotten fake cards for sake of cheapness and the way you can use them in friendly matches anyway) It was a Call of Legends bonus booster from the Retort theme deck and I pulled;
                        Sage's Training
                        Phanpy
                        Relicanth
                        Cyndaquil
                        Pidgey
                        RH Koffing
                        H Magmortar
                        Lost Remover
                        Chikorita
                        Flareon
                        Which is pretty cool cause I can use Relicanth with the Lucario in the theme deck.

                          Bought 2 Black and White booster packs today, and pulled a full art Zekrom! I've been having absolutely insane pulls lately.

                              Got a shiny Zoroark and shiny Darmanitan in the same pack today. Didn't even know it was possible to get two shinies in a pack!

                                I think you mean reverse Darmanitan and foil Zoroark? Yes, you get a reverse and a rare every pack

                                  I bought 3 Reshiram tins, and pulled 3 Full-Art Zekroms. I bought 3 Zekrom tins and pulled 2 Regular Reshirams and a Reverse one. So no full Reshirams. My bro buys 1 tin and pulls it.

                                  FML, man.

                                  Other than that, after Splurging on BW cards, I managed to pull:
                                  K/G Legend Bottom
                                  Lugia Legend Top
                                  R/S Legend Bottom(In the same blister as Lugia)
                                  Raichu Prime(With a bonus Vileplume)
                                  Crobat Prime
                                  Roserade UL(Reg and Reverse in the same pack, first time ever)

                                    Lugia Legend Top

                                    Wow, I've opened heaps of BW stuff (incl 5 tins) and pulled 5 full Reshirams and only one full Zekrom, and it was the guaranteed booster box one

                                      Just hit up my local league today, and some guy randomly got a pack and pulled one. Craziness.

                                      I pulled 4 Zekroms and 1 FA Zekrom in my first rounds of B/W boosters. I got a couple Reshi tins the other day, and I end up pulling an additional 2 Reshi in the packs from those tins. So I totally have all the components I need for Outrage.dec or ReshiPhlosion. Crazy, huh?

                                        It's the same deck formula I run, and it's SOOO much better than Reshiboar. After buying heaps of BW packs and grabbing up some Emboars I found myself being called back to Typhlosion. It makes me wish I could still find the tins at places that don't sell them at $20-25 with no price drops.

                                          Same here, actually. I stopped playing and got into collecting, and I wanted as many HGSS Ninetales as I could get. I decided I wanted to get back into playing the game, so I actually formed my deck around Ninetales, with Typhlosion as his best synergy and Charizard as the attacker. I mainly run a fire deck now because of Ninetales.
