Details

In English booster packs, which contain 10 cards, each pack normally has 6 commons, 3 uncommons, and a rare card inside. If a very rare or super rare card is present, there will be 5 commons instead of 6.

In most Japanese main-series packs (currently DMR-01 and forward), which contain 5 cards, each pack normally has 3 commons, 1-2 uncommons, and 0-1 rare card. If a super rare or rarer card is present, there will also be an additional rare card.

A box of Japanese booster packs will usually have 1-2 different Super Rares and 2-4 different Very Rares. Very rarely, the booster box will have no super rares at all or having 2 duplicate Super Rares/Very rares in the same box.

In the DMR series of booster packs, every 3-4 booster boxes will be a box that has a Victory Rare, although it varies between sets. In DMR-13 Dragsolution Gaiginga, Around 12 boxes or a carton will have a box that has a Double Victory Rare, which is 3-4 times the average amount of boxes to be opened in order to obtain a Regular Victory Rare. This has been increased to the same packaging rates as other Victory Rares in further sets.

Box Pulls and purchasing single cards are among one of the more popular ways to obtain cards of higher rarity.

In special edition OCG packs, the card count and retail price varies. DMX-01, DMX-02 series packs contain 7 cards and are usually twice the price of a main-series pack; DMX-04 and DMX-05 have 6 cards per pack and are usually twice the price of a main-series pack; DMX-06 and DMX-07 have 5 cards per pack and are usually the same price as a main-series pack.
