    That's a tough call. Because for each holo I pulled I also got the RH version too...Absol, Minum, Crawdaunt, and Torkoal. The only one I didnt get the RH for is Alteria

    soslowpoke - if ya wanna trade it, let me know...

    BJJ763 - thanx for the info, good to know.

    Also here's another question, why did they decide to put the RH in the place of uncommons instead of commons? For those that don't buy cards by the boxes, doesn't that make it harder to get the uncommons that one would need? I think it should be switched where the RH counts for one of the commons while a foil rare would count towards the uncommons, IMO of course.

    Well anywayz, it's good to be back on the boardz and back into Pokemon. I had stopped playing after the last Neo set and now just started with Nintendo's EX sets.

    I try to get the picture on-line.
    I opened 20 boxes US and no RH TV Reporter in there.
    This one came out a European box.

    I will not trade or sell this one, it's in my own collection now.

    Interesting... so anyone care to swap some free-retreat Marils for rev foil TV Reporter.

    This is interesting, becuase I just opened 2 boxes and pulled 3 RH TV Reporters in each box, and I will consider any trade offers, email me.

    NOpoke how many no retreat Marrils do you want? I have enough of those.

    NMScizor - go play outside.

    Feh NoPoke...I'd like to trade some no retreat Marills for a TV Reporter =x

    Also, anyone know if the no retreat Marills come in reverse foil?

    I don't think it does. I have two reverse foil Marills but both have a retreat.

    NO all the reverse Marills I have seen, had retreat costs.
    Don't think there are without retreat.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I find this hard to believe. I have opened many boxes since they started the reverse holo scheme and have never opened more then one reverse in any box. Let alone 3 in one box.

    i've pulled 2 reverse holos from a box before but never 3. I find that kinda hard to believe.

    There has never been a card printed this rare as well. So there is firsts.

    I too have pulled 2 identical reverse holos in the same box, three in one box is unreasonable, but three in two boxes in a row is just crazy. I don't think this is true.

    i just spent the better part of my nite opening lots of boxes here is what i found in each box:
    6 Holos
    6 Ex's
    and you already know the breakdown of RH.

    I can tell you this...if i pulled a 'secret' card then it was part of the 6 total Holos per box.
    There was one exception to this..If i pulled a charizard then i only got a total of 5 Holos including the charizard.
    But every box had 6 Ex cards.

    6 holos per box? Unbelievable how they are scamming us! You used to be able to get 12 holos per box (from my experience with opening 2 boxes of Expedition, recently)

    1/3 holos per pack - yeah right! Isn't that a lie right on the packs?

    My only question is are they going to put more holos in circulation or change the label on the packs to 1/6 holos per pack? What is with them? I am really mad at how you have to buy 3 boxes just to complete the set (It took me 3 boxes of Sandstorm just to get one holo Jolteon) Geesh!

    i am afraid you may have to get more than 3 boxes to complete the set as i found these cards to be more popular in the boxes
    whereas the not as plentiful ones were;
    hope you get lucky and are able to compete a set in 3 boxes but i doubt it at least from what i saw on the many boxes i pulled from.

    worse comes to worse pm me about getting a complete set. =)

    Well, I am not actually sure if it takes 3 boxes to complete a set. I was just generalizing.

    Anyways, I agree with the common cards above. After opening 16 packs of Dragon, I got 7 Geodudes and 3 Crawdaunt.

    If worse comes to worse, I am going to go to different stores, buy packs, and get holos until I am finsished with the set. After all, if anyone was to buy a booster box, it is impossible to get a holo in every pack. So, I think it is better to buy single packs at different stores, since it gives you a better chance at getting holos, IMO.
