I opened up Pokemon TCGO yesterday and nearly fell on the floor. Here’s the rewards screen I was greeted with:
Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick! This is a tremendous haul. First off, if you’re a noob to the game, or wasn’t around a few standards ago, Shaymin EX** was the card to own, similar to Tapu Lele. Back then it cost 20-25 Roaring Skies packs. Even today, while no longer standard, it goes for 6 Guardians Rising packs, and is a great addition for folks looking to get into expanded. Meanwhile Ghetsis is another staple for expanded, so this is really a two-fer.
Not sure what got into the Pokemon TCGO Powers That Be‘s coffee, but this is one giveaway you don’t want to miss out on.
**(Full Disclosure- I have a love hate relationship with Shaymin-EX, as anyone who has watched my You Tube Channel would attest to. While it’s a clear advantage in the draw game, the 110 HP + 2 prize reward made it a prime target on the bench. I thought it was at times a vulnerability — in that you could tech a mediocre lightning attacker in your deck and give yourself a slight advantage using Lysandre to get two prizes.)
