Default Pokémon TCG: Recent Pulls and Openings

A few days ago I bought the Kyurem and Mewtwo boxes along with 4 other card packs since I wanted to get back into the TCG. I did attempt to record myself opening the packs, but my camera decided to die halfway through the process so I had to make two parts. Enjoy listening to my weird voice and watching all of the pulls. (Note: I don't tend to show a lot of emotion)

And this is when my camera died, so here's part 2!

That giant Mewtwo card reminds me of the one I got with the Zoroark box. *steals the Zoroark at 4:40 and the other legends* Dang, you really got some nice pulls in both videos. I tend to get lots of "rare" Pokémon that I'm not too fond of. I really need to update my card collection list, too.

Involves Mystery Dungeons: Gates to Infinity ending    
The Crystal Wall card reminds me of the Bittercold. I wonder if they're related.

Last week I wasted too much money on Cards. >w< I went to a Pre-release as well for the next set "Plasma Freeze". During that event I opened up Latios EX, despite me not needing him so he'll most likely end up as trade material. Out of the Black Kyurem box and Lugia box I got the only thing useful I got was another Colress and a Vibrava (as I hope to build a Flygon deck eventually).

I don't have another unboxing video, but I bought a few booster packs today at Target. The first pack I opened (Dragon's Exalted) had a Rayquaza EX in it.

Three packs later, I pulled a Giratina EX. In a way, I'm kinda sorry that I didn't record the packs I opened, but I'm happy with all the cards I got.

What a waste of money... Just more reason to use eBay to get the cards I want instead. Meh, look at the video if you're bored.


Edit: What a tease. Look what three of the codes for the online game gave me. >_>

Oh gawd... THAT Keldeo. It's full art and ohhh the trades you could get with it. Or be a jerk and use it in a deck~ Ahaha I seriously hate the Keldoe/Blastoise meta-game deck. It's sooo good but sooo evil and rude to use too. Ahah... I need to go buy some packs again soon. Last Wednesday I got a few packs from the weekly league and didn't get anything good of course. Traded my Full Art Latios EX though for another Darkrai EX.

Horraaay double posting except something relevant because I have a visual this time, yaaay~! Sorta. It's just the lost Plasma Freeze pack of mine that the server wouldn't give me a few days ago last week but now it decided to give the 8th pack to me (which by the way I got the codes from a friend of mine so I didn't buy them ahaha, he doesn't play TCGO).

Annnnd dat EX. Of course I pull one and it's one that no one uses most of the time. </3

I opened another pack on the TCGO for fun. It must be addicted to giving me this Reshiram:

In celebration of getting a 4 on my AP Calc final exam, I bought a lot of booster packs. I'm actually sorry that I didn't record myself opening these since I did actually get a lot of good cards. :c These are all the rare cards I got on Saturday.

Seriously, how many card packs did you buy to get that lucky? All I really got out of a tin was the promo Keldeo EX on the front. Boring video of disdain attached for anyone who cares.

I see RayEels being possible for you now, which I looove this deck~ <3 Keldeo is a keeper, Latios usually just sits there and looks pretty (I had the FA copy once but traded it in my card store for something I needed) so he works rather well for good trades. Same with cute lil' Registeel. And those Ace Specs are nice, wish I had the luck to pull Rock Guard so I could complete my Flygon Deck that I reaaaaally wanna run (and have been for a while~).

I went on this awesome site called ProfessorOak(.com of course) and yes, this is a legit site... that works. You can buy and sell not only real cards, but also just the TCGO Codes as well! So I bought two Promo Darkrai and a Plasma Freeze pack. The Darkrai already came with points for the store thingy so I got two Boundaries Crossed as well. Of course with my luck, I didn't get anything except something I don't need and that's Miss Sparrrrrrrkly shown here~

So you'll have an actual Keldeo card now~! He works well in many decks, as well as a Darkrai deck too but of course others as well. The Siglyph, I've seen it get plenty of plays to prevent that EX damage that comes from too many decks now a days. And I'm kinda jelly of the reverse-holo Deino, These weren't terrible pulls, silly! Better than I usually get. x3 And I had no clue Meloetta was a card, I'm so out of swing. >w>;;

It's not really worth buying any of the really rare cards from there, though. Those are really expensive!

Which is why I probably haven't looked at those prices since I find most online purchases pricey or just haven't seen anything good yet. >w<;; But I am indeed going to the card store tomorrow so I will be getting some more packs!

It really depends on what you are looking for, I found some good deals on Ebay before for cards and I also saw some really bad deals. Also, it all just depend on how the person wish to sell their cards for, sometime you can a good price then other time you will get a really horrible and just feel that depress to buy it.

eBay is easily one of the best places to buy cards these days, but you definitely need to know how to spot fakes or dubious sales, especially when nobody is bidding or the Buy It Now price is extremely low. Of course, you may get lucky and find someone who genuinely doesn't know the value of the cards.
