‘God Packs’ Confirmed for ‘TAG All Stars!’

Earlier today, there were unconfirmed reports from Twitter users who claimed they opened some very unusual TAG All Stars booster packs. According to them, they opened packs containing ten secret rare cards!

We can now confirm that these packs do indeed exist for TAG All Stars! Trusted collectors in the community personally opened some of the packs.

In Magic the Gathering, packs like these are called “god packs.” When Magic has chosen to print them, they are incredibly rare — one pack out of every six to 20 booster box cases (it’s hard to find reliable stats).

We’re not yet sure how often you’ll be able to get these within Pokemon’s booster boxes, but they’ll probably be more common than Magic‘s. Update: It appears that you can pull one out of every 250 booster packs.

It’s unlikely these will come to our English booster packs since our sets are configured differently.

Thanks goes to staff member Tunu for the heads-up on this story!

Check out this news story to see all the secret rare cards from the set. There’s 53 of them, which is unusually high.

    Are they putting some special form of TCGO code card in the back to offset the weight of all these full arts? Otherwise it's gonna be really easy to weigh packs.

    The one random kid at league with the theme deck and no sleeves will be the one to get this pack.
    Guaranteed.

    Will happen at a Prerelease, where people notoriously play without sleeves.

    Just because there's these packs in TAG All-Stars doesn't mean they'll make the jump to our Cosmic Eclipse set, seeing as it's two different companies that handle Japanese vs. Western distribution. It wouldn't surprise me if TPCi gave these a miss, especially since this is such a special set in Japan.

    I hope we do get god packs in English its exciting!
    Hopefully weighing/mapping will not be an issue though.

    Yeah, weighed packs would be quite an issue if the packs were literally easily weighable by hand, I mean... think about it.

    I mean I'm fine with that. Allows me to get my hands on those cards easier.

    This is very frustrating. Japanese people can now get 10 FAs in one pack, while in English I'll probably be struggling to get one out of thirty packs (and I know the pull rate is about 1 in 16.5 packs, but I have terrible luck)

    I’m okay with out getting God Packs. I just hope TPCI includes more Steam Siege or Evolutions Packs in their products. I love them

    It wouldn't matter. That 1 random junior division kid at the local league would be the one to pull it

    this definitly encourages weighting.

    God, these are going to be EASILY searchable with those little pocket metal detectors, never mind the weight. This is idiotic.

    That card is gonna need to made out of a thin strip of stainless steel to offset the weight and metal detector search methods!

    reminds me when MLP FiM CCG started doing All Foils packs :)

    would be nice if English Pokemon TCG would do All foils packs :)
