Large Images of First Six Mythical Pokemon Collections

Mythical Pokemon Collection Mew Front Mythical Collection Celebi Jirachi Mythical Pokemon Collection Manaphy Mythical Pokemon Collection Shaymin Mythical Pokemon Collection Darkrai Mythical Pokemon Collection

And of course half of the rest would leak right after I posted Celebi’s earlier today. To repeat myself, “All the Mythical Collections will come with a full art promo card, a pin, a PTCGO code card, and two Generations booster packs.”

February 22nd will see the release of the Mew Box, March 16th is Celebi, April 13th is Jirachi, May 18th is Darkrai, June 15th is Manaphy, July 13th is Shaymin, August 17th is Arceus, September 14th is Victini, October 12th is Keldeo, November 16th is Genesect, and December 7th is Meloetta. Each box will cost $12.99.

    Out of all the new boxes, I think darkrai is the best. For 3 energies, you can put them to sleep, and then they don't really have a good chance to wake up. Does trick coin work for this? Or only effects that deal with your pokemon/your side of the game

    Darkrai being the best goes without saying. Most of the others are unplayably bad. I mean, the next best is Jirachi, and even that's barely usable. (If Celebi didn't have that coinflip, it would probably be better than Jirachi, though still not great.)

    That being said, Darkrai isn't THAT good, either. Though the two-flip sleep is nice, and has been criminally underused. (Why is Poison the only Special Condition that gets buffed often?) 80 for 3 is about as mediocre as you can get for an attack worth considering. If Yveltal didn't exist, I could have seen this maybe taking the role of non-EX Darkness attacker.

    I'd expect Arceus and Genesect to be better than Darkrai. Possibly Keldeo and Meloetta, too.
     
  3. Trick Coin only works for attacks of the Pokemon that has it attached.

    Yeah... this Darkrai is going to be really annoying.

    I want all of the pins. The Shaymin one is too cute.

    I'm having doubts now as to how good/exciting this set will be, if majority of the cards turn out to be exact reprints. It will kind of be like base set 2, though not exactly like that. You don't want to be opening these boxes and within your two packs find majority reprints.

    Yeah, cards are all meh at best. Still buying them for collection purposes, but if there's anything I'll truly be looking for in Generations, I'll likely just buy singles online...

    To be fair, we really don't know all that much about this set, including how many cards are actually reprints. Even so, I don't think the fact that the set will be filled with reprints would bother me really. Even if most of the cards are reprints, there are still the new EXs and Pokekyun Collection cards to look forward to. Common and uncommon cards are largely irrelevant anyway, so if they're mostly reprints it's not a big deal. Though if the reprints start flooding into the rares as well, then it might start to bother me...

    The issue here is that it's significantly more expensive to get multiple Generations packs when compared to buying a booster box for any other set - you're looking at basically $7.50 per pack as opposed to around $3 per pack with a booster box (in this case, a more recent one at about $100; if Generations gets its own booster boxes at some point it's obviously a different story). As a result, it might just be more cost-efficient to buy singles of the cards you want anyway - in which case the reprinted common and uncommon cards are even more irrelevant. Literally the only reason I can see these reprints being relevant is having some potent cards in rotation for a while longer, though being more of a collector myself even that doesn't affect me much. Sure, it might have been nice to have new cards or even just new artworks for this set, but in the long run I don't see it mattering that much.

    If anything, a set released in this way being mostly reprints is a good thing. If it was a 110 card set of entirely new cards, it would be incredibly difficult to get sets of things.

    It's kinda hard to make Darkrai "cutesy".
    ...
    You are right though.

    Darkrai is the best of those shown so far, while Manaphy may be used most by me as I want to run a Water-deck.

    A bit let down with Shaymin's box, would have rather it been Sky Forme, at least the pin. But I do like it anyway, really cute!

    My local Walmart is already selling the Mew Collection. I don't know if this is an isolated thing, like staff error, but beneficial!

    I agree Shaymin (Land form ) is my favorite Pokémon so seeing a Shaymin (land ) that will be in format is a great thing. I will definitely have some videos to take. :D

    These all look awesome! Definitely buying Celebi! I think besides Celebi and Meloetta I'm not looking for the cards but I love all pins and expansions! So I will probably buy one of each eventually then buy more singles of the packs online. That Darkrai is gonna be so annoying when it comes out with that sleep attack.

    Those Generations packs though. I got my FA Skyla I have been begging for since August. When Glaceon EX Full Art comes out my life is complete. Since Glaceon and Leafeon have not been revealed in Generations or Pokekyun I'm assuming they will be in later regular expansions (hopefully with full arts not that annoyance with Emboar Togekiss and Palkia EXs).

    Ok I'm done ranting those 20th anniversary sets look absolutely amazing! Buying them all!
