Shadows Theme Deck

When Zoroark emerges from the shadows, there won't be a shadow of a doubt about who will win! Even if Zoroark takes a hit or two, its Dark Rush attack does more damage for each damage counter on it. And while Empoleon uses its Diving Draw Ability to give you greater access to your deck, your other Pokémon can use their fast and effective attacks to do damage, cause Confusion, and then put out your opponent's lights. Make your opponents afraid of their own shadows when you play the Shadows theme deck!

Raiders Theme Deck

The Coffin Pokémon Cofagrigus rises to do your bidding when you play the Raiders theme deck! Send Sableye to raid your discard pile for Item cards that, when you discard them from your hand, let Cofagrigus bury your opponent's Pokémon with damage. Then send Krookodile in with its Dark Clamp and Bombast attacks to pin down the Defending Pokémon before enshrouding it in darkness in search of a Knock Out. Prove that you are skilled enough to ensure that your raiders become victors!
