Pokemon card pull

Each expansion from Pokemon card booster packs has a random chance for various rare cards. When we open them we never know exactly what we will end up getting out of a pack but what we can do is figure out the odd's of actually getting a rare or holographic card out of a pack. The earlier releases of Pokemon cards actually contained very high chances of pulling holographic versions of cards out of a pack. While the more recent releases give some reverse holographic cards and such or minor holographic cards while more rare cards seem to have much lower chances to actually pull them out of packs.
