Thread: Next Destinies EX, Shiny, and FA Ratio. WHAT?!

  1. #1

    Next Destinies EX, Shiny, and FA Ratio. WHAT?!

    So after 2 prereleases I've been hearing that the ratio per box is:
    2 EX's
    1 Full Art EX

    OK... sounds alright but I hope the ratio's higher then that. Now here's the one thing I heard that drives me crazy and I hope is untrue:

    one shiny Pokemon per case!

    Really? I can believe that since I've probably seen 3 Shiny Pokemon (2 Chandelure and a Zoroark) pulled at the prerelease I was at today. We had 46 people in the Prerelease and over 20 people in the booster draft.

    So can anyone else determine the "rare card ratio" here?

    You have it flipped. It's 2 FA, and 1 Ex.

    As far as the Shiny Pokemon, nothing special if it is 1 per case. I would have though it's something like 1 per 3 boxes, but unsure at the moment on that.

    This whole 2-1-1 box ratio thing is starting to get annoying. I mean, is it that hard to put 4-6 EX, 2 FA and maybe a SR in the box. I hate having to by boxes just to get a few cards. They need to fix this.

    The EX series you love so much is guilty of the same thing. Actually even worse in some cases, you get maybe half of them in a box for ND, when you'd maybe get a third in previous blocks. (A few exceptions withstanding)
    Q. Can I use Rotom's "Mischievous Trick" Poke-POWER when I have no cards in my deck, to put a Prize card into my deck?
    A. No, you can't. That would be far too mischievous. (HS:Undaunted FAQ; Sep 9, 2010 PUI Rules Team)

    I did not buy boxes back then so I don't know the pull ratios on them. its hard now because I'm trying to make complete sets for every set, both reverse and non reverse.
