    42 packs deep now, still not even averaging 1 SV per 3 packs currently. This is the worst set of all time to me at this point. Product is hard to find, expensive even if you do get it at MSRP, the packs are coming from all different sources so dupe potential is high (compared to a booster box in a normal set), and the pull rates are just the same old crap as usual even though the subset is almost 100 cards. And let's not even touch the black lizard hype explosion.

    Does that mean you're not going to open any more of Hidden Fates or are you In Too Deep now?

    I still have 2 ETBs, both Pokeball Collections and the Super Premium Collection pre-ordered. Soon to be drowning in my own salt.

    Did you touch a cursed idol or something?? I'm still getting around 50 percent. At least the quality of those pulls is pretty good.

    Yeah it's really frustrating seeing everyone else online say it's been about 1-in-2 for them. I'm not even at 1-in-3 odds. lol

    It actually started sinking in today how this might be a good time to bail on collecting Pokemon cards anymore. Unless I get super lucky and get the Zard in the product I pre-ordered, this is going to be the first main set in 20 years I won't be able to finish, because I'm not spending $500+ on a single card. And who knows what terror Gen 8 will bring...

    I don't think that price point is sustainable. It'll come down; it just might take a long time.

    I see that as most of the price of a UCS Lego Millennium Falcon or the new UCS Lego Star Destroyer, so if I'm dropping $500 on a toy, I'm goin' all in on either of those first!

    So far mine hasn't been the best rates either tbh, starting to regret getting 2 pin collections instead of just 2 more tins

    Raichu GX Tin: Pinsir GX and Shining Lucario GX in the same pack was hype af, plus a shiny vulpix. No holos

    Mew Pin Collection: No shinies, 2 Lapras Rares, and a Bill

    Mewtwo Pin Collection: Phermosa Shiny pull, Jessie and James Holo, and another Bill

    It seems the tins have the highest shiny pull rate so far, but a lot more charizards are coming from the pin collections so I was banking on that :/

    I am.... VERY annoyed that there are 94 cards in this damn subset but I got a double within the same box.

    This is also my third Rockruff I've pulled.....



    At least I got all the variations of the Birds TTGX. :confused:

    Well, here's my Hidden Fates ETB pulls:



    I'm not sure. I've heard the odds for pulling a shiny card or GX is like 50% per booster pack. But this is definately lower than that. It's not a bad case at all though, but a bit less than I'd have hoped.

    What do you guys think?

    FA Jessie & James
    Wigglytuff GX
    Shiny Swablu
    Shiny Garchomp
    Holo rare Vaporeon
    Holo rare Jessie & James

    It definitely is not 50% to pull a Shiny Vault card. Maybe 50% chance to pull a SV OR a GX/full art from the main set.

    I am in the same boat as you. I have opened three ETB's and haven't gotten all that much to talk about. The set isn't playable, and the collectors aspects isn't realistic for a person who doesn't have a bottomless pit of money. I'm truly disappointed with this one, Pokemon could have done much better.

    I haven't opened packs so far (will soon), but I thought it was either 1:3 or 1:3.33. Of course with only 3 or 4 packs in one product that almost does not matter, because with 4 packs it would be 1 or 2 and if you then combine many tins you have anything between 1:4 and 1:2.

    Then, the holos and GXs from the main set are not connected to the SV cards, probably 1:3 too, but independent of whether you have a shiny or not.

    So I opened 3 tins yesterday:
    1. tin: 1 shiny (Xurkitree), 1 FA (Birds)
    2. tin: 1 shiny (Frogadier), 1 FA (Jessie & James)
    3. tin: 2 shinies (Gardevoir GX and Eevee), 1 FA (Birds), 1 holo (Jessie & James).

    So if you have a lot of tins like my 3rd one, you would say it's 50 %, if you have a lot like my 1st and 2nd one, it's 25 %. In total 33 %. 3 tins are not too representative, but I'm quite sure those numbers are normal and how it is intended to be.
