A Pokemon YouTuber went viral after opening a Trading Card Game booster pack with two Charizards in it. The fan lost his mind after discovering the insanely rare “God” pack from the upcoming TCG Shiny Star V expansion.

Despite releasing over 21 years ago, the TCG has seen an explosion in value in 2020. Pokemon card fever has swept YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to watch their favorite personalities try to hunt down the rarest collectibles.

One content creator went viral on November 23 after opening up what is being called the “luckiest booster pack of all time.” The fan broke down in excitement after pulling two rare Shiny Star V Charizards at the same time.

Pokemon YouTuber gets luckiest booster pack ever

In November, reports began to pop up online that “God” packs were coming to the Pokemon Trading Card Game. These rare boosters are said to have a one in 600 chance of being found, and are guaranteed to only contain rare collectibles inside.

On November 23, content creator ‘Collect Pokemon‘ actually found one of these mythical packs during his live broadcast, and it contained two Charizards in it.  After realizing what he had, the fan exploded with excitement and yelled, “Oh my GOD! We did it! Two Charizards! This isn’t just a God pack, it’s a God of a God’s pack!”

The moment quickly went viral online after popular British gaming YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken posted the clip on Twitter. Many in the Pokemon card community were floored by what he had pulled, and called his item “the luckiest Pokemon pack of all time.”

At the time of writing, it is not clear whether God packs will come to the rest of the world as they are only a part of the Shiny Star V expansion released in Japan. Unfortunately, TCG sets often change drastically by the time they make their debut in other countries.

While the two Charizards are only currently worth around $800-$2,000 depending on their grading, the fan’s luck is mind-blowing to say the least. Collectors growing up in the 90s could only dream of one day opening a pack with just rares in, let alone two of the popular Fire-type starter.

Overwatch players have been dying to know more details about Overwatch 2, but while the developers have remained tight-lipped on the details, they hinted that one of the new maps could take place in Kraków, Poland.

Overwatch 2’s development is still a mystery in many ways. It’s been delayed time and time again, with no release date in sight. To make matters worse, a series of job listings suggest it’s still far from completion. However, Dexerto’s Bill Cooney is confident that a delay could be a blessing in disguise.

Either way, fans are dying for more information. Fortunately, the developers have finally started dropping some hints, but it has nothing to do with an official release date. Instead, it has to do with a potential new map in Overwatch 2.

It feels like an eternity has passed since Overwatch 2 was first announced back in 2019.

A team of developers talked about the new map, Kanezaka, in a recent interview on the official website. They discussed the inspiration for the map along with its design and what players can expect. 

The interviewer then asked them, “If you could choose any location for a new Overwatch map, where would it be?” They probably expected to get a simple answer. Instead, they got a bombshell.

“You’ll see in Overwatch 2!” said the developers. One dove a little deeper and added, “Kraków, Poland. This is a city that I visited a few times and fell in love with. The medieval architecture is beautiful and well preserved, the city has very pleasant plazas and open spaces, with lots of interesting shapes and colors!”

At this stage, it’s nothing more than a hint. However, it’s a pretty strong one and a sign that it could be in the works.

Overwatch fans would love to see more locations in the sequel, and there’s no doubt that Kraków would be a great addition.

Hopefully, it’s the first of many more hints and the developers will reveal more details on what players can expect in Overwatch 2.
