Haven't posted in awhile, haven't been buying much since Sun and Moon came out, I really want the new full arts of old XY trainers and exs in The Best of XY such as Hex Maniac, Blacksmith, Regirock and Jolteon to name a few, but I don't really want to buy the Japanese boxes so hopefully they are released in English soon.


Not sure what I posted last time but so far this month I've pulled Ilima FA, Primal Kyorge FA, Scizor FA and Gallade FA, also Lapras GX, and exs of Genesect, Camerupt, M Pidgeot, M Lucario, M Blastoise(Evolutions), M Charizard(Evolutions) and Thundurus.


The M Pidgeot is mocking me as it's the only full art I haven't pulled from Evolutions.


Went to Walmart today and they marked down a ton of their ex boxes, mainly any box that has 4 packs in it is 17.98 instead of 19.98.


I got 4 boxes including a M Latios Box and a M Rayquaza Box and 2 Kingdra Boxes, also got 12 Roaring Skies packs.


I opened a Kingdra box and it had a Raticate Break and Raticate in the same pack, a Zygarde Ex and a holo Alolan Dugtrio. So I guess if Raticate Break was a good card that would have been a good prerelease pack. Also pulled the Gallade FA, I think that's my 5th of that and some holos so yay to no weighing.

So I went to a prerelease over the weekend for Guardians Rising. Because I played all 3 rounds, I earned an additional 3 packs, but I only went 1-2, so I did not earn any more packs for doing good.

My prerelease pack had the prerelease Mudsdale in it.

Within the boosters, I pulled Sylveon GX, Vital Dance Oricorio, reverse holo Bewear, Energy Recycler, Enhanced Hammer, Rescue Stretcher, 2x Field Blower, Choice Band, reverse holo Whiscash, Mimikyu, normal Whiscash, Mallow, reverse holo Brooklet Hill, Wailord, and Aqua Patch.

They also gave us each 4 league promos at the end in an XY Pikachu, League Cup Nest Ball, League Primarina, and League Incineroar.

I also bought a bunch of singles while there:

Jungle Prerelease Clefable (slightly miscut)
Erika (Gym Heroes holo)
reverse holo Darkness Energy from EX Emerald
BreakPoint Prerelease promo Trevenant.
Pokemon First Movie stamped Mewtwo Black Star Promo 3
League promo Pikachu XY202
RC30 Gardevoir EX (Full Art)
FA Pokemon Ranger

I opened the other Kingdra Box and got a M Gallade FA lol.


I went to another Walmart and they too had stocked some packs of Roaring Skies, bought the 12 they had and the first 6 I opened had Shaymin FA, Rayquaza Ex, Swellow H, M Latios Ex and Jirachi H, out of the last 6 I pulled Deoxys H and Gallade Ex, so not sure what happened but I suggest buying loose Roaring Skies packs at Walmart. Only downside was the Shaymin has really bad edgewear, like it looks like someone took it and scrapped all 4 sides onto the edge of a table. It's only my second ever Shaymin FA pulled though.

Today I opened my first Guardian's Rising packs. I opened an ETB and a couple Vikavolt blisters. Not sure if this set has 2 3 pack promos or just Vikavolt but my local Target only had that one. I ended up recreating something that happened in SM1, aka I pulled 2 secret rares in one purchase, one in an etb and the other in a 3 pack.


Spoiler:



Since early XY I've been pulling the secret rares early in the set's release, the silver Dialga was only my 3rd ultra rare in Phantom Forces. This time the Max Potion was in my 2nd pack of the set. The Rare Candy was in the 7th pack of the etb.

Happy about pulling the Break.

I also bought a Sun and Moon ETB when I got the Guardians Rising ETB and packs and opened it the following day and it had my first hyper rare, Lunala.


I don't know why but these cards look kind of dirty compared to the xy full arts, I think it's because the ridges are smaller. The Lunala doesn't have that gorgeous rainbow glare the silver Dialga from Phantom Forces had either even though the card is colored in a rainbow print.


To be honest seeing it in person I notice the ridge design is kind of boring as well. On the older cards the ridges on the Pokémon would follow the Pokémon's design and make them 3d like and then in the background you'd have another design to make them standout. But on the hyper rare Lunala the background design is pretty much the same as the design on Lunala... Like the pattern matches the background design and doesn't really fit Lunala's design.

Just did a quick open of an evolutions pack I earned on the TCGO. Dugtrio was the rare. Charizard Spirit Link was the reverse, and there was also Potion and Venusaur Spirit Link in there for trainers. Not much in the way of interesting cards, though.

I've yet to pull any of the FAs with ridges so I'm having a hard time visualizing what you're talking about.

Wanted to try out a Japanese booster box so I did get my hands on the SUN & MOON ISLANDS AWAIT, that is some of the base for the new english set guardian rising.

Happy with the pulls, did put one of the cards in the pile to send to PSA. :)

Got the Tapu Koko ETB as sleeves are sexy.

Managed to get a Max Potion, Rescue Stretcher, 3x Field Blower, Brooklet Hill, Phantump, RF Vulpix, RF Victini, RF Aqua Patch and Turtonator GX.

Happy with the GX, it was one of the five that I wanted outside Lele (those being Drampa, Sylveon, Turtonator, Ninetales and Lycanroc). Going to make a Fire deck that doesn't auto fold to Water mons now.

On PTCGo, those 8 packs netted me a Sylveon GX and a few others.

Opened a locked Steam Siege booster on TCGO just now. Rare was Magearna EX, nothing else interesting in the pack. Bit of a nice run of luck for me the past two days.

Went on a hunt for the Mega Powers Collection the only place that had it was TRU, we had a 20% off one item coupon that doesn't start until Sunday so decided to wait until then to get it.


Instead at Target I bought a Knock Out Collection and a couple Swampert tins, as they contain Roaring Skies.


In the Knockout Collection box I got a full art Malamar Ex, in the 1st tin I got a M Heracross Ex and in the 2nd tin I got a full art Xerosic. Nice cards, I hadn't pulled those cards in awhile. I miss the old xy sets.

So, instead of using my $50 off one item GameStop coupon on a console or controller, I opted to use it on a Mega Powers Collection box.

BreakPoint booster: Trevenant BREAK, Fighting Fury Belt
Ancient Origins booster: reverse holo Double Type Golurk, ancient trait Metagross, Dangerous Energy, Ace Trainer
BreakThrough booster: reverse holo Glalie Spirit Link, Full Art Mewtwo EX, Fisherman
Roaring Skies booster: full art Shaymin EX, Healing Scarf
Primal Clash booster: reverse holo ancient trait Medicham, ancient trait Rhyperior
Fates Collide booster: Lugia BREAK, Kabutops, Dome Fossil Kabuto, Double Colorless Energy
Steam Siege booster: Clawitzer BREAK, Probopass, Special Charge
Evolutions booster: Electrode, Double Colorless Energy, Charizard Spirit Link

The full art Shaymin is very nice. 2 ultra rare+ cards in 8 packs again, too.

I got the Mega Powers Collection today, wasn't the best box. All the promos in all the boxes they had were very faded, like they didn't use the right amount of ink. Not the best pulls either so wasn't really worth the money, oh well.


I kind of hate the fact Pokémon releases all these special cards in English in 50-70 dollar boxes with old inventory they are trying to get rid of. Plus the poor quality prints of the cards. The price is definitely in the number of packs.


I mean the Mewtwo and Mew full art reprints they released awhile ago were very well made. And the box had a lot of stuff to match the price.


Hopefully the full art trainers get better treatment and prints.

I've only gotten the Zygarde EX (I'm rebuilding the deck) and mine looks great, I wonder if yours are just from a defective batch? Contact TPCI if they seem that way and ask for replacements

The full art prints did look kind of dark in my box.

Anyway grabbed a Tapu Bulu tin and opened it tonight.

Guardians Rising Pack 1: reverse holo Energy Lotto, Whiscash, Max Potion
Guardians Rising Pack 2: reverse holo Talonflame, Chandelure, Multi Switch, Aqua Patch
Evolutions Pack: reverse holo Hitmonchan, Beedrill, Energy Retrieval, Pidgeot Spirit Link
Steam Siege Pack: Magearna EX, Steelix Spirit Link

Not a great EX, but still happy to have pulled an EX in just 4 packs.

Magearna is pretty viable in a format with Lapras GX and Toxipex GX
