So I just got two boxes of Pokemon Card pack things in the mail from AmazonAnd I will blog about what I get…. IN REAL TIMEEEE
Yeah this would be a lot easier if we had a shoutbox… -_-‘
The tape holding the box shut was really weird. It was hard to open and then suddenly it just snapped open. It made me feel weird…. 😛
AIRplus? …. There are two little 3-packs…. of air? So no bubble wrap anymore, just these, or is this just a gift, like fresh mountain air or something? Maybe Amazon started shipping to the International Space Station and included these, and this was just an accident. Wait… What if I wasn’t supposed to get the air and the guys on the space station die because they don’t have enough air? This is so terrible!!!!!
kay, this first box is Pokemon TCG: Platinum: Supreme Victors. The title sure seems exciting and majestic. But the box itself sucks. The fonts are really generic and it almost feels like a cheap pirate box. The only artwork on there is a Charizard on front, the same Charizard on back, and a random Rayquaza. Meh.
Okay so there’s a Dialga promo card in front. The artwork is okay and it has a pretty good move, Time Call, where you can evolve any Pokemon by searching your deck, but the other Dialga I have (I have a normal version AND a jumbo card version with that one 8)) is way cooler, as it has a move that can DEevolve the opponent’s Pokemon.
Okay, so I totally just found the box. That’s so cool:
See. The other move is Time Wager. Flip two coins. if both are heads, it does 100 damage, but if any are tails, it does 50. It’s a really good move anyway. Seriously, 50 damage for only 3 energies!
??? There’s this gigantic poster of every single card in the Supreme Victors set. I…. Guess this is cool maybe?
There’s 4 packs. the POP Series 9, or Pokemon Organized Play packs, make up two of them, and there’s 2 Supreme Victors packs. The art on the POP is just the regular Garstomp artwork… booooring. The other two have an epic Charizard flying around, presumably about to claw the face off of that wuss Dark Charizard, not the shiny one, the one from the Team Rocket pack that isn’t even black, and another Garstomp, but one that is awesome and roaring as it repares to punch someone out with his winghands. Actually when you put them side-by-side it almost looks like they’re about to fight each other! Soooooooo cool :::.
POP Series 9
These packs suck. They only have 2 cards and one energy. I have enough energies besides dark and steel thank you very much D<
So this first pack has A Turtwig level 7 and a Buneary level 8. The Buneary is absolutely unremarkable, but the Turtwig is pretty cool.
meh. Oh yeah and a fighting energy. @____@
The other pack:
Booyah I totally got a dark energy! Score!! I also got a Manaphy, which is pretty okay, and a Chimchar, which does 60 damage plus sleep if you have a Piplup. Better than the other pack I guess…
The actual packs
The anticipation is not just killing me right now, but trying to violate my corpse as well. I have to open these! I will open the Garchomp first because he’s not as cool as Charizard.
Meditite level 22. laaaaaaaame
Gible level 12. laaaaaaaame
Bulbasaur level 13. ooh cool artwork. but it’s not a very cool pokemon…
Cherubi level 10. really really sucky
Rhydon level 45. meh to the extreme.
The holographic is Cherrim level 29, which is coincidentally the evolved form of the sucky Cherubi. It sucks as well. Its own main move, petal dance, makes itself confused >__>
Starly, level 5. It takes 2 energies to do a 20 damage peck? What the heck.
Milotic level 49. A really good Pokemon actually! You discard 2 cards from you hand to heal any Pokemon for 40 damage, and then another attack that does 90 damage, but minus 10 for every card in your hand!
Empoleon FB, level 50. Who the hell is Frontier Brain… I really should have played Platinum, I guess?Yeah it’s pretty solid. You can move the opponent’s energy to another card, and it does 20 damage.
Stadium: Champion’s Room. All SP Pokemon have one less retreat cost. laaaaaaaame. What’s an SP anyway?
Geodude level 9, Corphish level 11, and ANOTHER Bulbasaur level 13. All trite.
I got a pretty sweet Breloom level 37, plus an okay Masquerain level 36.
Skorupi level 6 has really cool artwork but isn’t a good Pokemon at all. And is psychic for some reason…?
This Chingling is awesome. It lets you search your opponent’s discard pile and use a supporter card in there for YOURSELF. yah
My holographic card is a level 33 Parasect. It makes the best sleep ever. When you go to sleep because of it, you have to get 2 coins heads to wake up instead of 1. Epic win.
I also got Skarmory FB, which is unremarkable, and an Arcanine G level 60, also meh.
So yeah not as good a pack. Also I still don’t know what SP means. It’s owned Pokemon, right? So why can’t it just be ___’s Pokemon?
Now onto the second box….
It’s a little better than the last one. This front has a pretty epic Celebi and a picture of Zorark, Rayquaza, and Dialga in the back.
THAT PICTURE WAS A CARD. It was one of those jumbo cards and it was so awesome. Too bad you can’t use it DDDD<
Anyway I have 2 Call of Legends packs and 1 HGSS Undaunted pack. The Houndour on the Undaunted is freaking me out, and the Call of Legends Kyogre looks like it’s retarded, literally. But the other CoL pack has Deoxys, and it is certifiably badass.
That’s the jumbo card btw
Meh: Stunky, Houndour, Hitmonchan, Misdreavus, Gloom, Vaporeon.
Cool: Honchcrow: It’s my rare
Evee: awesome 3D art, and a random Carnivine in back.
Scyther: Art only. Not that good by itself
Holohgraphic Scizor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best Pokemon ever. And it has an attack that will do 20 extra damage for each metal energy attatched to Scizor. Infinite awesome.
Pineco, Cyndaquill, Misdreavus, Slowpoke, Pidgey, Vaporeon. Mehhhhhhhh.
Holographic Riolu, which doesn’t even have a good attack -_-‘
Snorlax: uhhh it’s pretty good?
A new cersion of the Copycat card. Extremely cute artwork. ❤
Lost Remover: …..What’s a Lost Zone….
Pidgey, Relicanth, Hitmonchan ?(the same one as before wiht new art??), Snubbull, Phanphy, Flareon.
My holographic card is Typhlosion, wish is really cool but I no hav a Quilava….
Another Lost Zone card…. Sage’s Training. It’s like Professor Oak but worse…
Tangrwoth HELLZ YAH!!!!!!111one The artwork is so awesome… but it also has some “Lost Zone” crap and it confuses the heck out of me….
Yeah so I just got what, 58 cards I guess. Pretty cool and all for $26.16. I feel so accomplished 😛
