This article has different recommendations for different types of players. You’ll also find some of the most iconic cards from each booster box that we recommend. This way, you’ll have an easier time deciding which one to get.
With that said, let’s get right to it and find the booster box you’ll enjoy the most!
Vivid Voltage – Newest Pokemon Booster Box
If you want the newest booster box then Vivid Voltage is the correct choice. This set was released on November 13th, 2020. Next set is supposed to release in the first half of February 2021.
It’s got something for everyone – strong Pokemons, good Trainer cards and amazing Secret Rares. It’s one of the more heavily anticipated booster boxes recently.
Finally, Pikachu fans will probably be the happiest about this set, as it features Pikachu V and Pikachu VMAX, both of which can be pretty powerful.
Darkness Ablaze – Has a Chance of Charizard VMAX
The biggest draw to this box is a chance of getting Charizard VMAX, which is – as we came to expect from Charizards – a valuable collector’s card.
However, Charizard isn’t to only big Pokemon in the set. There are a bunch of Pokemon V. The most notable is surely Eternatus V. Among many other cards it also has an even bigger VMAX version, which is pretty spectacular. Check it among the iconic cards from this edition.
XY Evolutions – Feeling Nostalgic?
Do you just want to buy a Pokemon booster box to get some nostalgia about the good old days? Do you want your Pokemon card to look like they used to, without the modern design? If so, you’re going to love XY Evolutions.
It’s the fifth and final set from the XY Break Series, but most importantly it marks the 20th anniversary of the franchise.
That’s why it includes plenty reprints from the very first Pokemon Set (Base Set), with old designs – with just a few minor adjustments. Nevertheless, there are still some powerful new cards, but even those are featuring old favorites, like the final evolutions of the original starters. (Charizard, Blastoise, Vanusaur).
So if you want to buy one Pokemon Box to get a maximum nostalgia hit, you should definitely get XY Evolutions. You could even get the Surfing Pikachu!
Sun & Moon – Get First GX Pokemon Cards
Sun & Moon Edition introduced Pokemon-GX. Each of these Pokemon has a GX attack. That’s an attack so powerful that you can only use one of them per game!
So if you’re a fan of the GX Pokemon and you want to get some of the very first Pokemon-GX, this is the right booster box for you. You can find some really awesome cards in these packs, such as Lunala-GX and Solgaleo-GX.
Let’s check some of the more iconic cards you might get in this booster box.
Team Up – First Set to Feature Tag Team-GX
Team Up is the first expansion that featured Tag Team-GX. These card feature not one, but two or three Pokemons of the same type. They are Basic Pokemon cards, but usually have an insanely high HP. Tag Teams are so strong, that if an opponent knocks them out, they get to take three Prize cards instead of one.
They also have the previously mentioned GX-attack. It’s so strong, you get to use one per game.
Tag Team cards come with different designs including:
- Full Art
- Story Variant
The Story variant is a special alternate artwork, that tells us more about the story about the each group of Pokemon. You can see one such example with the Magikarp and Wailord below.
Unbroken Bonds – Pokemon Booster Box With Most Powerful Cards
Are you when deciding which Pokemon booster box to buy and you just want powerful cards? If so, you should get Unbroken Bonds, it probably the box with the most powerful cards that was released in the last couple of years. That’s why it’s pretty sought after, which is reflected in its higher price (check on Amazon).
There are a bunch of strong GX Pokemon, both single versions and Tag Teams. Dedenne GX is probably the strongest of the bunch. When you play it, you get to discard your hand (which will often be close to empty by then) and draw 6 new cards. That’s a whole lot and you can also have some sweet synergies with discarding.
Even if the name suggests otherwise, some cards in Broken Bonds are in fact, pretty broken.
Rebel Clash – Newer Set With Cool Trainer Cards
Finally let us wrap with a somewhat newer set. Rebel Clash released on May 1st, 2020. It’ll probably cost you less then Unbroken Bonds, while still containing some cool cards.
The two Rainbow trainer cards you see in the Iconic Cards section are both pretty strong an amazingly cool looking. So if you want to get lucky and get a Secret Rare trainer card, this box might be a nice choice to try and get lucky.
