Opening Pokémon cards has turned into a huge phenomenon this year. This is mostly thanks to many social media influencers putting the Pokémon TCG in the spotlight. From YouTubers like Logan Paul to Twitch streamers like XQC, content creators across every platform were all getting in on the trend and viewers around the world wanted in too. While many of these content creators fell off the trend shortly after, some were more persistent and others were opening Pokémon cards before it was cool. This is a list for the best channels dedicated to Pokémon TCG content only. Of course, this is a subjective list and not based on subscriber count.
This channel goes out of their way to travel around to open packs from different locations and records more than just the opening. Most videos are more of a vlog than just opening packs. This can make for some interesting topics and different videos than you’ll normally see on Pokémon TCG channels. The downside to this is the videos are usually longer compared to other channels and opening cards isn’t the majority of the video but Nate has a positive personality and creates interesting content nonetheless.
