Is this real life?

I mean… is it? Did you see the INSANE amount of pulls I just got from this box? Oh why did I wait to do this video?! I’m sorry, Pokemon gods, if you’re watching…

If you have not had the chance to check out the video yet, just click on this link. It’s about 10 mins long.

So…the pulls…like, I was blessed right? The Pokemon gods looked down on me and declared that I would possess those cards…it’s just surreal. I feel like I’m dreaming, right?

4 boosters, broken down to 1 Ancient Origins, 1 Breakthrough and 2 Breakpoint… and result? All 4 boosters had a magnificient pull from them. Couldn’t have asked for better results from a double video day. What an exciting way to do it!

Entei, you amazing.

Here’s a close up of the Ash-Greninja EX oversized card:

I love the art, but I hate the card itself. Just because of its attacks. I’m talking about Ninja Blade. You spend 3 turns to get those energies, which isn’t bad for 130 damage, however, you can’t use the move again the next turn. That irks me… So you would essentially be forced to use Dancing Shuriken which has a chance to do no damage at all.

I guess the hope would be that after the 2nd turn, you would’ve hit at least once with Dancing Shuriken, causing 20 damage and then finish off the other side with 130, totaling 150 damage… I would imagine using the moves back and forth would be difficult if you needed that 130 damage to knock somebody out.

At least the retreat is not bad if he gets into real trouble.

Thanks for reading!

Ash-Greninja EX

So finally going to get down with this box. I’ve been saying it time and again that I kept having to push it back. No “real” reason other than my schedule went South when I was planning on doing it last Saturday. But that’s behind us and the time as come to dig into this beauty.

It comes with the over sized card, Ash-Greninja promo, 4 boosters and code card. (and btw, box codes are being saved for something special).

I can’t wait to see what we get and the video will be up on Youtube in about 15 mins!

That’s that!

Well how about that grab bag? The link is right here if you’d like to see it.

There were a handful of cards that I could add to my collection and it seemed like there was more repeats than there should have been? Does that make sense. It just seems like there was too many that took up most of the 100. Don’t get me wrong, though, I do love that it came with most of the newer sets (Flashfire, Breakpoint, Breakthrough). The only ounce of disappointment I had was that there wasn’t the OLD sets. I’m forever searching I guess. *sobs*

Hopefully, I can do something like this again in the future.

Here’s a shot of all the reverse holos that came with it. Lovin’ that Bayleef.

These cards look better in person

So! Some repeats as far as a few different rares that were pulled but still managed to get some other pretty awesome cards too! For instance, the Salamence! LIKE BOOM! That was my head exploding. Have you seen the video? Click here for it.

I mean, that sucker is hard enough to get in the video games and I freakin’ pulled a holo-rare one. Talk about luck. Again, I bought this box online so I think that’s the secret to getting some pulls. I can’t begin to remember what I did before the internet was made for ordering Pokemon cards. Just wow.

Also, that full art holo Swampert? *insert wink eye thing*

These are some beautiful cards if I did say so myself.

I swear…this blog post has taken like 30 mins to write because I keep staring at those few cards… ah what the hell, a few more minutes…

Just check out the details on this Hoopa pin. When did these even start coming out? I totally love adding these things to the collection. I never really would’ve noticed these I don’t think when I was younger but these have really been amazing.

On top of those pulls, on top of that pin, I got those awesome promos… through the box, they looked legit but dude, when you pull them OUT of the box, the art is incredible. Definitely an awesome buy.

Which of those promos is your favorite?

Thanks for reading!

So today’s unboxing

I forget where I got this box from. I know I ordered it online. Sigh, my memory fails me. But in a little bit, a video will be uploading to my channel with the unboxing of the Hoopa EX Legendary collection. Very stoked. Look at all the goodies it comes with! Hope there will be some great pulls. I’m just excited for the promos that you see there.

I can’t wait to see what we get!

Blister pulls

I really felt good about that blister, you know? Check out this link for the video if you have not seen it yet.

It’s another great Tuesday in my world and I hope yours is going okay as well. We had another pull video up. Like I said in the video, I love blister packs with actual cards from sets instead of the ol promo ones simply because you get a chance to grab some rare cards without too much work in the process. And it’s like controlled, I guess is the right word, where you still have to chase the “bigger” rare cards.

From this blister, we got the Noivern, Flygon, and Hydreigon. All really cool to see.

And then out of the Ancient Origins pack, I was able to Tyranitar EX. You could tell I was kind of excited when I made that part of the video kind of dramatic, right? Heh..heh..

All in all, it was a good blister.

Promo card set blister

I found this little dime here at Target for $10. I love little blister packs like this because it can really help you fill in some holes in your collection, you know? And if you can see my collection now, there’s plenty of holes. I’ll do a video of that later.

I love that you get 3 dragons in this blister. And that Pikachu coin is just icing on it! Rare-holos are hard enough to pull and this blister just gives them to you. Truly a delight.

It also has 1 Breakthrough and 1 Ancient Origins booster so I can’t wait to crack into them and see what I get!
