    Hey guys, a quick collecting question here.

    I recently won a sealed Pokemon Tempest Gift Box on ebay. According to the listing, the box contains 1 Preconstructed Theme Deck and 3 "Random" Boosters. I am curious to know, what is the theme deck? And what were the boosters included in this box?

    UPDATE: I just found out what it contains, which is listed 2 posts down. I guess this can be locked unless anybody wants to discuss.

    I got this box liek 10 years ago. Just checked it out, it says a constructed deck from abse til fossil iirc.
    I think there was a Zapdos and some Lightning/Water deck inside, and I got a Dragonite out of one of the boosters.
    Still I got this a loooong time ago, so I'm not sure xD

    Note that the Zapdos is an alternate version, different than the regular Fossil one.
    Fossil was printed with the old holofoil that was also used for base set and Jungle.
    This Zapdos, while the Fossil card, was printed using the new holofoil that is still used now.
