    Hello all,

    I don't know if there is a thread already made for the pull rates of Plasma Blast but I thought I would start one.

    At the prerelease I went to today, out of 14 players only 3-4 EXs were pulled, 2 SRs, and 2-3 Ace Specs. I am very troubled by this. It seems that there is not a lot of distribution of EXs in the booster boxes. To prove my point even more, here's what I got in my booster box:

    • Kyurem EX
    • FA Iris
    • G Booster
    • G Scope

    In regards to rares, I got multiples of some (2-3 Volcaronas, 2-3 Machamps (of both varieties), etc.). I did get quite a few good trainers: 2 Catchers, 3 Rare Candies, 4 Ultra Balls, 4 Juniper, and a bunch of the others.

    I'm curious as to what everyone else gets.


    Pull rates for the past couple sets have been super up and down, like last set i had a box where i got 5 ex's and another where i only got 2, i'm very frightened that a box with just one ex was put into circulation though

    Phenomenal Pull Rates so far..

    2 pre-releases I participated in.. everyone was pulling gold, just wonderful stuff.

    1st pre for me; Genesect EX, Iris FA, Virizion FA, Ultra Ball, Catcher, Junipers, Bangles, etc.

    2nd pre; Genesect EX, FA Iris, FA Jirachi, Junipers, Mirrors, Bangles, etc.

    a lot of great uncommmons, etc in this set also.. it shouldn't get much hate.

    People were pulling SRs all day, and Dialga and Palkia were all over the place as well.

    Of course, everyone.. and I mean everyone kept asking each other if they wanted to trade their Gene/Virizion, but oh well. That's for a different thread.

    I saw every SR, but SR Rare Candy once. Man.. so many kids got ripped off today lol.

    Guess we got the opposite set of boxes - very few people were pulling anything at our prerelease today (i'm curious how you attended 2 since they just started today). But those that did pull stuff pulled multiples! 4-5 people got absolutely nothing. The rest got 2 EXes. Or EX and Shining. Even 1 pulled 3 EXes!

    One in the morning at 11:00, and another at 4:00 pm later that day relatively close to the first event. I was going to go to two, but opted to go to one and do a draft afterwards for a chance at more packs and didn't have the time to get to the other :(. There are still a few others though coming up.

    Yes. I agree with what was posted. It did seem like the same people were the only lucky ones. But te event was just flooded with riches. Either way.

    I felt bad for my table of 6, as both times I was the only one who was handed the good 6 pack. Except for the odd pack from 1 player that got either an Ace Spec or a shiny (Dusknoir)

    Btw. I went to one location, prerelease at 9am, then again at 1pm. Typical pre release times.

    I skipped the $15 draft, too many quality uncommons etc that I wouldn't want to pass off.

    Out of one box:

    Virizion EX
    Genesect EX
    FA Iris
    Master Ball

    All on the left side. The best card on the right side was a reverse Candy. :0

    This prerelease seemed really uneven. A bunch of players got absolutely nothing, and a bunch more got 3 URs in their first 6 packs.

    Hmmm, interesting. All of my good pulls were on the left side too.

    1 Box:

    FA Iris
    Master Ball
    Jirachi EX
    2 Catchers

    The first four were ALL on the right side--which is very odd to me.

    Played in two prereleases and only got a G-Booster.

    I participated in opening 2 boxes

    Box 1:
    Virizion EX
    Genesect EX
    Dialga EX
    Virizion EX FA
    Jirachi EX FA
    Palkia EX FA
    Scoop Up Cyclone

    Box 2:
    Palkia EX
    Palkia EX FA
    Master Ball
    Shiny Dusknoir

    Very uneven pulls. In the first box, one set of 6 packs had FA Virizion, FA Jirachi and Dialga. In the second box, my 6 packs had the Palkia EX and Shiny Dusknoir.

    Also, 2 Catcher were pulled in each box.

    So I guess I'm not buying this set either. What is up with these inconstant boxes. they need to go back to pull ratios so they are worth buying again.

    I've seen 3 boxes with no FA in any box. And some with 6 EX + Ace Spec. 1 EX + Gold Candy.

    Not that this is TCPi's fault, but the UltraPro set portfolios not being released for at least a month after the set now, leaving me with a bunch of cards in their packs hanging around everywhere, kind of sours me on bothering to collect them as well.

    Welp, I'm already prepared for not getting any full arts in my box. Again.

    I think you best bet to determine what the ratios will be to shell out money would be for a case (6 boxes)

    btw, is $85 a box worth it for plasma blast? with the current inconsistency's? im very curious now

    just food for thought.

    all booster boxes should have 4 normal ex, 2-3 full arts and 2 ace specs. they would be worth the price at that point but buy a box with 1 ex in it is inexcusable.

    I fell another change petition coming on.
