    Yeah, I'm not seeing the 1 per 5 boxes for Shiny Gyarados. At a fairly small PR we had 4 pulled.

    There is no way that MD boxes come with 2 Level X's I bought one that didn't have any. I think that the odds are one per box. Also I would like to personally thank you cause now we wouldn't have to answer so many stupid "level X's per RR box threads. Maybe this should be stickyed.

    There's too many stickies in this Forum right now for another one. If people ask, we can always link to this thread.

    dmaster out.

    You may just have gotten a bad booster box. I have heard of that happening before. But I will change it to one Lv. X.

    Please don't talk about what booster boxes to get here please. Thank-you. It's also a 33% chance of getting a Luxray GL Lv. X.

    I've gotten 3 RR boxes and each one only had 2 x's. 2 of them were from the same case. Essentially, it's a 22.2% of getting lux x.

    Some of these are wrong.

    In a box of HS, you get 6-7 primes.
    In a box of UL, you get 5 primes.
    In a box of HS, you get 2-4 legends.
    In a box of UL, you get 4 legends.

    lv.x's:
    DP : 1
    MT: 1 (Time-Space Distortion is 1 in 3 booster boxes I believe. It takes the space of the lv.x)
    SW: 0-1
    GE: 1
    MD: 1
    LA: 2
    SF: 2
    PT: 2
    RR: 2-3
    SV: 3-4
    AR: 3


    Shinies/reprints:

    All boxes with them has 1-2 shinies or 1-2 reprints. In case of Rotoms and Arceus, you get 2 Rotoms in a RR box en 9-10 Arceus in a AR box.

    Gyarados/Alph:

    Gyarados in 2 boxes, Alph in 3 boxes.

    Crystals are pretty weird. There is no set number for them. Some get 5, some get 1.

    You're welcome dude. ;)

    I'm not sure about the ex cards though.

    Well, there's quite a lot of different ratios for those EX cards, but I just did the ratio on average for all the sets because I hear some sets are 1:18 and some are 1:8 so I just typed what the average is.

    Rotoms come as a RH. Hence the attacks and name being foil, not the artwork.
