    Since the USD is going down lately, I was considering importing some boxes from Japan (seeing as shipping costs seem less then from US) and I was wondering what cards come in japanese packs.

    Last I remember, there were 20 packs per box with each containing a holo rare, a basic energy and some other stuff in between. Is that still the case? Also, what is the rarity of LV.X in jpn boxes?

    from moon hunting/night dashing each pack had 1 holo, 1 energy and 2 rares i think it was?
    and 3 level xs per box.
    you;d be getting:
    17 holos
    3 lvxs
    40 rares

    per box

    Wow.. with the box plus shipping from Japan costing 3 times less than here, and having significantly better cards inside, I think we have a clear winner here. Off to order some boxes.

    Not sure who got the idea that there's a holo and 2 rares in every pack; it's one and one.
    5 Common
    3 Uncommon
    1 Rare
    1 Holo
    1 Basic Energy
    Also, I don't think 3 LvX per box is right. Not sure about the newer sets, but when I bought two boxes of DP1, I got 1 lvX per box.

    DP1, 1 lv x
    DP2, 1 lv x
    DP3, 1 lv x
    DP4, 3 lv x

    this is my experience of the lv X ratio

    I use Wakaba.net which has shipping 15$ to anywhere in the world, no matter how much you order. Boxes there range from 60 to 70$.

    DP4 boxes always have 3 Lv X

    Night Dashing has the Eevee Xs and Gardy X

    Moon Hunting has Cress, Honch, and Garchomp

    Just got an email that my order has been dispatched! Yay!
    I ordered a box of Pursuit of Moonlight, Dash at Dawn, Temple of Anger, Cry from the Mysterious and Heatran/Regigigas deck along with Garchomp lv.X. For a nice total of 315$.

    Here's a little breakdown for those interested (assuming DP5 comes with 3 lv.X per box which can assumed given how many there are).

    4 boxes - 12 Lv.X plus 68 Holo rare + 80 rares
    285$ shipped (equals 4 525 CZK)

    If I were to buy boosters in my country (one booster costs 100CZK) I could get 45 boosters, from which I would get at most 2 Lv.X and around 20 Holo rares (probably less).

    I think I know where I will order any future boxes from.
     
  19. Please buy from the US -_-; If you import from Japan you are just weakening the American dollar further by not putting money into the economy...

    :D I dont really think 300$ would help American economy that much. Besides, the weaker the USD is, the cheaper I get everything I need so..
