Mythical Pokémon Collection – Darkrai
$12.99 at Most Major Retailers
May’s Mythical Pokémon of the month is Darkrai, the pitch-black Pokémon from the Sinnoh Region. As with every month, Darkrai has his own Mythical Pokémon Collection release for the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The Darkrai collection includes a Darkrai Pokémon Official Pin, an XY114 Darkrai promo card, and two booster packs of the box exclusive Generations expansion. Each collection retails for $12.99 at most major retailers.
The promo is a little interesting, as I love the effect of players having to flip twice on sleep check. Unfortunately with it being an attack, it doesn’t seem wildly beneficial to the current Darkrai-EX or Snorlax decks out there. If this guy had that effect as an ability, it would be crazy with something like Hypno. Alas, this is what we got instead. Still interesting, but not nearly as good. The pin as always is gorgeous. Darkrai is present with strong gold outlining, colored detail, and high quality metal. These are some of my favorite things to collect, and I can’t help but love this one.
