WANT TO SEE MORE SETS?

I am aware of the demand for more sets! The biggest encouragement for me to add more is for the site to reach a wider audience. I'd love to add more, the bigger the audience gets; so share the site with friends who would enjoy it. If there are particular ones you want to see arrive first email me. However, I won't add any that are currently being monetized by the Pokemon Trading Card Game Online. I'm strictly interested in historical preservation, and re-creating the experience of opening these packs.


FOUND A BUG?

Please share the details and circumstances of what you experienced by email and I'll address the issue as quickly as possible. Be sure to include which browser and platform you were using. Bonus points if you include a screenshot.


WANT TO REQUEST A NEW FEATURE OR RULE?

Many of the features on the simulator, such as the same set button and the zoom ability, were user requests. Let me know what you'd like to see, and I'll see if I can add it.

If you're submitting a new card distribution rule, check the list below to see what's already been implemented. The best place to reach me currently is by email.





PROBABILITY

  1. Holographic cards: 1/3 packs
  2. Secret rare (Team Rocket): 1/60 packs
  3. Shining Pokemon (Neo Revelation): 1/12 packs
  4. Shining Pokemon (Neo Destiny): 1/18 packs

RARITY DISTRIBUTION

Image key:   = rare   = uncommon   = common   = energy   = unkown

When shuffle is turned off, cards will always appear in the following order:
  1. Base: 7 commons (2 of which are energy), 1 rare, 3 uncommons
  2. Jungle: 7 commons, 1 rare, 3 uncommons
  3. Fossil: 7 commons, 1 rare, 3 uncommons
  4. Base 2: 3 uncommons, 5 commons, 1 rare, 2 energy
  5. Team Rocket: 7 commons, 1 rare, 3 uncommons
  6. Gym Heroes: 6 commons, 1 rare, 3 uncommons, 1 energy
  7. Gym Challenge: 6 commons, 1 rare, 3 uncommons, 1 energy
  8. Neo Genesis: 1 energy, 1 rare, 3 uncommons, 6 commons
  9. Neo Discovery: 3 uncommon, 1 rare, 7 commons
  10. Neo Revelation: 7 commons, 1 rare, 3 uncommons
  11. Neo Destiny: 7 commons, 1 rare, 3 uncommons
  12. Expedition Base: 5 commons (holo pull replaces 5th common), 1 reverse holo (any rarity), 1 regular rare, 2 uncommons
  13. Aquapolis: 5 commons (holo pull replaces 5th common), 1 reverse holo (any rarity), 1 regular rare, 2 uncommons
  14. Skyridge: 5 commons (holo pull replaces 5th common), 1 reverse holo (any rarity), 1 regular rare, 2 uncommons
These patterns have been extracted from numerous YouTube booster pack openings.

DUPLICATES

Duplicates have been prevented in the simulator, since they aren't meant to occur in physical packs. In the original 11 sets, it is possible to pull two of the same pokemon, but not with the identical art or card number. In the expedition base set, it is possible to pull three of the same pokemon with the same art and card number, but of different rarity tiers: holographic, reverse holographic, and regular rare.
