Featuring a card I've been searching for over two years!

I purchased this 2018 Pokemon Trading Card Game Legendary Trio Mini Collection for $9.99 (plus tax) from Walgreens.

That product includes the following items:

  • 3 foil promo cards featuring Entei, Raikou, and Suicune.

  • 2 booster packs.

  • 2 metallic coins.

  • 1 online code card.

I'm a little worried about that "contents may vary" disclaimer above one of the booster packs, because the back of the box states it could potentially include an XY Series booster pack.


Coins

  • 2017 Orange Frosted Holofoil Lyconroc

I could never understand why Dark Burn requires Psychic-type Energy instead of Dragon-type Energy?

Why is it the Rare cards that's not great in battle has top-notch art?


The damaged promo cards are disappointing, but at least I pulled two coins that I don't own, and two solid booster packs.
