    the last pack in my local games store... and my first ever NEO pack, too. Anyway, I got something called a Shining Raichu in there and for the rarity it had three little stars. Is this worth anything and is it worth playing in my water/electric/fire deck?

    shining's are not for play...(it's difficult to get it powered up)
    just keep it for collection...or sell it for $$$(it's pricy)$_$
    that's all...bye^_^

    Clarification: You can play with it. It is legal for play. However, it's not worth playing with the combination of multicolored energy requirements and limit of one per deck.
    Value is a bit higher than regular foils. Shinings are about 2-3 times as rare as regular foils.

    Specifically, shinings are about one in every 12 packs. Thus, with 8 shinings, each shining is found one of every 96 packs.

    Interesting. I thought they wre like the neo equivalent of the Pokemon EX, but seeing as I've got about 7 EX Pokemon from one booster box I must be a bit off.

    I think the rumor mill has it that Nintendo made a mistake with the rarity of the Ex pokemon in R&S. I think the intention was for them to be as rare as a holo-foil but in practice they are more like a normal rare.

    what i mean is shinings CAN be played...(but it is quite difficult to get it powered up...)sorry for my mistake...~_~"...and if anyone doesnt mind...could someone take a look at "my poli deck(i'm using a shining garydos here)" for a while?i need some ideas on modifications...by the way...is shining garydos as rare as the other shinings...(it just showed a star in the card)...~_~"

    Speaking of shinies, does any one know anything about Shining Mew? I know there's a japanese one, but was it released in english.

    There is a Shining Mew in Japan, and it was a Promo Card for Neo Destiny's release. Many people waited for an English version of the card. But now, especially with Jamboree cancelled, I think it's just disappeared into the mystical deep realms of Wotc HQ.

    I wish it were still around, with Mew being my favourite and all. ;_;

    Oh well.
