What is the Lost Origin Pull Rate?

One of the most important metrics for any new expansion set is the pull rate – the ratio of packs that have rare cards to those that don’t. Sets that have a good pull rate tend to be more popular than those with a low pull rate. We wanted to find out the Lost Origin pull rate so opened two booster boxes and logged our results

What is a Lost Origin Booster Box?

Lost Origin Pull RateLost Origin is the 11th main expansion set in the Pokémon Sword and Shield series.

The set was released on 9th September 2022 with a presale price of around £105 ($100). At the time of release most stores had stock available and many had reduced their price from the presale price. This could be due to less demand for this set or because stock was not allocated and stockists received the full quota ordered.

New booster boxes are sealed a with clear film covering which has the Pokémon logo imprinted in white.

Each booster box contains 36 sealed booster packs. The booster packs for this set have four different artworks – Hisuian Zoroark, Giratina, Enamorus and Radiant Gardevoir.

 

How good is the Lost Origin pull rate?

The term ‘pull rate’ refers to the numbers of holo, half art, and full art (including ultra and secret rare as well as Trainer Gallery and Radiant Pokémon cards) that are found in booster boxes. The higher the numbers of these cards, the better the pull rate. In this set, the Trainer Gallery cards and Radiant Pokémon cards take the place of a reverse holo, meaning that a pack can have more than one art card.

In addition to logging the overall Lost Origin pull rate we also logged the pull rate for each pack art design – Hisuian Zoroark, Giratina, Enamorus and Radiant Gardevoir.

Conclusion

From our 72 booster packs we pulled 12 holo rare cards, 4 Radiant cards, 11 half art cards, 4 full art cards and 8 Trainer Gallery full art cards. This represents a Lost Origiin pull rate of 54%.

If the holo rare cards are removed from the calculation the pull rate falls to 37.5%

The results analysed by pack art showed that packs with Hisuain Zoroark or Radiant Gardevoir artwork have the better pull rate.

However, it should be remembered that the Lost Origin pull rate results posted here were taken from three booster boxes. If the sample were larger with more booster boxes being analysed, the result could be different.
