Currently, there's a discussion in the news forum about Nintendo's new R&S EX Pokemon collation (http://www.pokegym.net/showthread.php?t=264). FYI, a number of sources have confirmed that EX Pokemon are now just as rare as normal holos. So, on average, every 3rd booster, you'll pull either a rare Holo OR a rare Holo EX. That's a HUGE switch from the original printings where EX Pokemon were considered to be the same rarity as non-holo rares. According to the numbers, here's what has happened (for the worst): 1. With 13 non-holo (NH) rares and 34 uncommons in R&S, the odds of pulling a particular NH rare are 1/13 boosters. The odds of pulling a partiular uncommon are 1/17 boosters. Uncommons are NOW more rare than NH rares! 2. In the original R&S booster boxes, on average you'd get 12 Holo Rares and 12 or more EX Rares. NOW, you'll only get a TOTAL of 12 (in any combination) of these Rares. Holo Rares and EX Rares have increased in rarity by 100 percent or more! You could probably now say that R&S has created an Ultra-rarity-level category! (Can you say YUGIOH!) So, I for one am going to voice my concerns to Nintendo about the ABSURD switcheroo! It's just the kind of move that could sour my efforts to support Nintendo OP. How do the rest of you feel about this change in R&S Rarities?
