Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon Burning Shadows Booster Box Unboxing

Join me as I unbox a whole booster box full of cards for Sun & Moon: Burning Shadows!

The third set of Sun & Moon in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Burning Shadows, is out now! The set released this past Friday (August 4th), and adds approximately 140 new cards into rotation.

With a little help from my friend, I was able to send off 1,400 Pokémon cards that were in mint condition to a card shop that specializes in buying cards in bulk for in-store credit, money, or trading for booster boxes. Additionally, they do sell other Pokémon TCG products. Since I had plenty of packs from Guardians Rising, I figured that I would place a pre-order for SM03 Burning Shadows through their bulk-selling process, especially since I had also wanted to get my own booster box for a long time now. I placed the order back in late June, and it arrived last week on Wednesday (two days before the official release of SM03 to retailers.)

Each booster box comes with 36 booster packs of trading cards. These are usually only available at card shops for purchase, but can also be purchased from the Pokémon Center. These boxes are also where card shops often grab individual booster packs for resale.

Without further ado, let’s go ahead and have a look at the box! I do want to apologize in advance for the terrible lighting in the photos.

I also went ahead and opened every single pack as well. Here are the pulls I got from them. Keep in mind that there will be duplicates!

So what do you guys think? Be sure to let me know if you have any favorite cards from the latest set!
