Pokemon Expansions and Decks

Pokemon has been around for a long time, and has accumulated thousands of fans around the world. Many of these people collect Pokemon trading cards, allowing them to easily battle and trade with their friends. These cards are great for all ages 6 and above, due to the fact that they are both fun for playing with others and they encourage creating various strategies.
The Pokemon “Ancient Origins” expansion box includes over 90 Pokemon cards.This card pack can contain Hoopa-EX, Mega Tyranitar-EX, Mega Ampharos-EX, and Mega Sceptile-EX. Not all of the feature cards are always in the pack, but there are usually the EXs of all of them at the least. These cards as well as the rest in the pack can be traded and used for battle. The pack also comes with a code that can be used to register the card pack in the online trading card game. Although some of the cards are common, there is a chance of getting very valuable cards that are not one of the features (including legendaries). Even though the box does mention primal Kyogre, Rayquaza, and Groudon, they are not guaranteed to be in the expansion pack.
The Hoenn Power tin trio is made up of a Blaziken EX tin, a Swampert EX tin, and a Sceptile EX tin. Each tin comes with four booster packs as well as its corresponding EX card. The EXs are great for battling, as they are very strong and have 170 health each (except for swampert, which has 180 health). All three of these tins contain cards that are great for trading and battling with other people. There are codes that allow you to obtain the Hoenn starter EXs in the online trading card game as well.
The Ancient Origins theme decks feature a 60 card deck, a metallic coin, a code to register the deck in the online game, and a playmat that gives the appearance of a themed stadium. There are many different packs that you can choose depending on your play style, strategies and favored Pokemon types. The Ocean’s Core theme is a water/fire dual type deck, and it includes a Kyogre as its main card. The Iron Tide theme includes normal, steel and water types. All of the Ancient Origins theme decks include various item cards. They also have a possible strategy for the deck on the back of the box. The decks all include a variety of Pokemon and items based on the feature card. All of the cards in the deck are listed on the back of the box.
The Ancient Origins expansion box includes a vast amount of cards, and has some that are very rare. The Ancient Origins theme decks are much smaller, but the cards included can be very helpful when used together. The Hoenn Power tins don’t have very many cards, but the three feature cards are very helpful. Overall, these card packs are a great addition to any deck.
