The original Black & White boosters didn't come with a code. Only Emerging Powers and Noble Victories boosters come with codes, and you have to buy a booster box of B&W to get a booster code from that set. Every theme deck since Black & White came out does have a code, though.

And certain cards are more common in certain areas than others because of how they distribute packs.

    The Groudon is a Shiny Legend from the "Call of legends".

    Just got a Samurott Tin today and got nothing noteworthy except for a few holo cards. The tin and figurine that comes with it is very nice though.

      Yeah, if you're not careful they can poke your eye out!

      Says the man who's got 8 of them stuffed away in a ziplock bag in a drawer just waiting to prick my fingers when I dig through the drawer.

        Got three boosters today, two Emerging Powers and a Noble Victories. I got a holo Darumaka and a Darmanitan, a Hydreigon with shiny lines behind it, a holo Sewaddle, a Beartic, and Swanna, and an Xtransceiver. Any of those interesting?

        Depends on whether you plan on playing competitively or not. Though Hydreigon and Beartic are pretty good cards for those who play casually.

            I actually have two full art thundurus and a regular thundurous, surprised I pulled them! I traded someone a catcher for a hydreigon this past wednesday and I want their other one. I have three full art zekrom, what would be a good trade for one of them?

            Look up the monetary value of one and see if any cards you want are a similar price.

              The past weeks I bought a few packs, these are a few of what I got;

              BW:EP Reverse Holo Krookodile
              BW:EP Holo Krookodile -comes standard with the theme deck-
              BW:EP Reverse Holo Ferrothorn
              BW:EP Holo Terrakion
              BW:NV Reverse Holo Golurk
              BW:NV Leavanny
              Lilligant of both versions.

              Are any of these very interesting regarding worth or are they good to use for TCG, maybe particularly against other cards?

              Oh and a question, when can you say your collections is officially complete? When you have all the -first edition- sets? Or do you need every holo and reverse holo edition as well? Or is that up to yourself?

              What a complete collection is would be up to yourself, but having one of every card in a set technically counts as a complete set.

              The Emerging Powers Lilligant has some potential (as do all of them, but Lilligant more so than the others) because of its first attack.

                Bought another serperior tin the other day and pulled nothing special, trying to complete the the ZPST deck.

                -Umbreon COL (HOLO)
                -Grumpig Triumphant (Reverse)
                -Gothitelle EP
                -Verizion EP (HOLO)
                -Electrive Triumphant
                -Sawk BW (Rare)
                -PONT, Twins, & Cheren

                All and all not really good pull.

                The Card store I buy from did not have any Emboar tins which kind of shocked me. Target on the other hand had five lol. Target obviously being more expensive so I passed.

                  Hi all; Is buying 36 booster packs of the base set worthwhile for AU $395 (free postage). generally it looks as though i am saving 3-5 dollars a pack from other sellers who are asking 13-15 dollars a pack including postage to Australia.

                  My guess is that it would be a better deal in your case, though those dollar amounts do sound a bit high for single boosters from the earlier sets.

                      Got my first theme deck and booster pack in over a decade!

                      I got the toxic tricks theme deck and haven't been beaten on TCGOnline yet. I really like the Scolipede card.

                      My Emerging Powers booster came with some nice cards, including a reverse holo (That's when the card is shiny but the picture isn't, right?) of Audnio and a full-card art Tornadus. I don't know how rare or not rare they are, but they're cool looking.

                      I assume they don't, but I just wanted to confirm, the HS4 theme decks don't come with codes to be played on Pokemon TCGO, correct? They're on Amazon cheap right now, but 99% of my playing is probably going to be online, if not I'll probably save up and get more EP Boosters and the other theme deck

                          Jungle boosters! That brings me back, 90% of my old cards are jungle cards.

                            Could've been worse. :P

                            Could've been where you bought 15 boosters and got 3 decent rares. It's happened to me before.

                              Could've been where you bought 15 boosters and got 3 decent rares. It's happened to me before.
                              lol, that has to suck. Do you happen to know how much the new tins are going to run when they are released? I am contemplating on preordering on ebay.

                                Bought a shadowless booster pack from the original series for around $50 AU. I am telling you it better have a holo in it!. GRRR haha.

                                They usually park them at $15 apiece.

                                Though I remember when they used to be $10 apiece, though they were smaller and had fewer packs in them.
