    I second that. The meta game will likely change once ultra prism comes out. I'd just wait and see what happens first.

    So, I'm in the market for a booster box, and I'm trying to decide between Guardians Rising and BreakThrough. Thoughts?

    Definitely Guardians Rising. Lele is just too good, it also has good stuff like Choice Band, Turtonator, etc. plus Breakthrough is rotating this year.

    Hey, guys. I just want your opinion on pre releases.
    I've never been to one but everyone seems happy with those.

    The thing is that maybe I could use the money to buy singles instead of getting to a tournament and maybe don't pull anything.

    Do you think is really worth it?
     
  6. That's a hard question. I haven't been to a prerelease in a year, and I haven't even touched a pack of cards in months. I usually never do anything but singles, but the social aspect of prereleases and having early cards is of course really cool for people who A. care about new cards and B. like to socialize like humans, which... Ew.... but $30 is really steep if you're just gonna come back with a regular Cynthia and a couple of regular rares.

    prereleases are best when there is a good promo that will see competitive play(oranguru and passimian in sun and moon base set) or hold monetary value later(charizard from evolutions) otherwise if you dont pull the expensive card and find a buyer that day you normally lose money(this set you wanna pull the lucario as it will have some people wanting to play them). if you are new go there and ask some of the better players there for some help with finding the staple cards. also it is good to have an idea of a deck you wanna play. iff you got a deck you wanna play just reply to me and i can get you a basic deck list so you can know what to ask for.

    Thanks a lot for answering. Yes, I think that lucario is the best card in those pre releases but even then I have 25% of getting it.
    But anyway, in case I play you tell me maybe you can help me with a list. Do you have a list for every pre release base set?

    It would be really helpful. Thanks.

    Thanks a lot for answering. Yes, I'm not a big fan of getting a lot of bulk but all my friends are putting pressure on me to go and play. Maybe if you win it's worth the money but even then it's not certain that you can pull something good.

    I know a guy that one that he won the pre release and they gave him 10 booster packs. He only pulled a RA Alolan Exeggutor GX.... in 14 packs! That is crazy.

    i meant find a deck you want to play. empoleon and garchamp/lucario will both be cheap starting decks in the next set. you could also try dusk mane necrosma magnezone but that will be a little harder to get the pokemon for. and the list i give you wont be a prerelease list it will be a regular 60 card list. so again pick a deck you wanna play and i will make a budget list for you.

    It would be great if you could lend me a Garchomp/Lucario deck. I think it's going to be really good. I also could get some staple cards and Tapu lele Gx. I have a friend that can lend me those. So it doesn't have to be necessarily a budget deck. But I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks a lot.
