I was looking for something interesting to open the other day and my eyes locked in on this Pokemon TCG 2 pack + 1 bonus item (can be a pin or a EX/ GX card) mystery box. I know it isn’t worth it (it was $14 I think) but my curiosity got the better of me.
I got 2 packs of Chilling Reign and a nice pin of Litten, Rowlet and Popplio.
The best pulls from those packs are a holo Path to the Peak (which sees a lot of play) and a holo Malamar so not the best pulls but definitely not the worst I have gotten. I was really hoping to pull a Rapid Strike Inteleon. I have opened a bunch of Chilling Reign packs already and haven’t pull one yet. The pin is a nice one. I don’t collect Pokemon pins but I have a friend who does so maybe I can trade the pin for something else.
In the end, if you say the packs are worth $4.50 each and the pin is $5 then maybe you can justify the $14 price point. You definitely can find better deals for packs but it is still fun to open mystery boxes. You just never you what you might get!
