Ah, Pokemon. This takes me back to my younger days with the original Pokemon games and shows. I honestly hate what they did with the game adding all this EX stuff. It totally ruined it. I have tried the online game and it was ridiculous how if you didn't have EX mew you just need to hang up your white towel lol. I did play some TCG with my boyfriend and we actually have a bunch of cards we purchased at our local Walmart. It CAN be fun if you play it normally without the fancier cards.
Anyway! I love surprises and wanted more Pokemon cards to add to my collection so I wanted to see what Golden Groundhog could offer. I actually got the cards from an Amazon store called Exxess Entertainment. They seem to offer many different types of cards with Pokemon cards probably being their more popular pick.
I got to try two of their packs. The first pack was a 30 Pokemon Card Pack lot - Mew, Foils, 1 Ultra. Mew was there and the ultra EX card I got was a Thundurus. In the TCG when you knock out an EX you get to pick up two prize cards instead of the usual one. I guess it makes sense since EX cards are so overpowered. Thundurus looks so awesome and he has two moves. He can do Headlock which does 30+ damage and he can also do Voltage Rush which hits for 150 but it also hits him back for 50 damage. It's a foil and it's beautiful.
Alright, so this set comes with poison, burned and 10+ dmg counters. Let me tell you all the other cards that came in this set. You won't get the same exact cards because they will always be different.
Here's a list of the Foils I got in this pack - Thundurus EX, Victreebel, Dragonite, Poliwrath, Carbink
Mew isn't a foil but it's a special rare pokemon to be cherished.
Here's a list of the regulars I got - Meowth (That's right!) , Slowpoke, Pidove, Cascoon, Abra, Voltorb, Horsea, Shuppet, Unown, Nuzleaf, Krokorok, Inkay, Dratini, Drilbur, Dark Kadabra, Aipom, Swablu, Dragonair, Sunkern, Swadloon, Drifblim, Rhyperior, Probopass, Swellow
