Hoenn Power Tins (Sceptile-EX, Blaziken-EX, and Swampert-EX)
$19.99 at Most Major Retailers
Around once a season (so around four times a year), The Pokémon Company International releases a series of two to three themed tins. Last season we took a look at the Groudon and Kyogre tins, and now we’re back with another dip into Hoenn with the Hoenn Power Tins, showcasing Sceptile-EX, Blaziken-EX, and Swampert-EX, promos XY53, XY54, and XY55 respectively. Each tin gives you one EX promo, a code card featuring a full 60 card deck on Pokémon TCG Online, two XY: Roaring Skies booster packs, one XY: Primal Clash Booster Pack, and one XY: Furious Fists booster pack. The decks included have a few good trainers in them, but ultimately aren’t very good. They’re basically on the same level as theme decks, but with the inclusion of two EX cards. It’s a nice little bonus to include though, even if they aren’t great. As always, this comes down to pulls, but I do have to say that for $19.99, four packs (around $16) plus a promo, plus an online deck isn’t a bad deal at all.
