    See I think that there is gonna be 6 Level X. Based on that, I think it is safe to think that the 2nd new legendaries is Darkrai. The Official Release Date is Wensday the 13th of Feb.

    That is JMO,

    Eternal Time should be Dialga Theme Deck
    Infinite Space should be Palkia Theme Deck
    Endless Night is Darkrai Theme Deck

    3 theme decks? I am guessing Dialga/Palkia/Darkrai Lvl. X's come out in the Theme Decks and you can get the other 3 Lvl. X's in the packs...

    No lv x's in theme decks. Ever. Sry.

    i think that would be cool, either that or guarantee me at least 2 lv x in a box. (even a for sure one would be nice...)

    Great Encounters looks to be very amazing. I look forward to seeing it in February.

    Well, it's obvoius that those two decks are Dialga and Palkia based, so maybe Great Encounters will have Dialga and Palkia, non lv. X, as well as their lv. X forms? At least we know Cresselia's in there.

    i dont know, because in the scans for both japanese DP3 and DP4 there wasnt any dialga or palkia other than the lv x's, but im not 100% sure about that.

    *eagerly anticipates Darkrai Lv X*

    But yeah, GE (I guess that'll be the abreviation, barring any copyright fights) will be an awesome set.

    March for the Kanagroo land.

    There was however a theme deck in Japan for Dragon Frontiers based around Tyranitar EX d, and it came with 2 of the EX card. It is possible, however unlikely that the english language release will get the level X's in decks. PUI may do this simply to cut down on the sheer number of X pokemon in the boosters.

    There was more than that! They had a Gardevoir ex starter for Dragon Frontiers. They also had a Palkia Lv.X and Dialga Lv.X precon. I've even seen CHARIZARD EX in one of their precons! :lol: Now I'm wondering if they did this for every EX set, :confused:

    They like to rip us off, giving us cards like Torterra and Bastiodon. :nonono:

    Or, in worst case, will be DP Promos...

    There weren't, I'm sure of that. And I really doubt they'd throw DP1 Dialga/Pallkia in here.

    I know as little as the next person, but how can someone think we are going to get the eeveelution lv.X in this set? I feel there will be 3-4 lv.X in Great Encounters. Darkrai, Palkia, Dialga, and possibly Cressilia.

    It just wouldn't make sense to have the eeveelution lv.Xs in this set when they could come in the next set.

    So you think that they are going to now make every set different than the Japanese sets? That we will forever have different level X's in each set than the Japanese got in theirs?

    That just strikes me as odd.

    5 sets in, and we still will not have received all of the pokemon from this series! Looks like it could be on to set 6 or 7 for the legendaies, Regigas, that little hedgehog thingy, Areus, and more...

    Wow, Neo only had 4 sets, and I think we had all the RS pokemon in 4 (HL was the final straw for new pokes wasn't it?)
