Power Play Theme Deck

Heavy hitters deliver pure power: it’s up to you to control it! Gigalith rumbles into action with the Rock Bullet attack, and the Intimidation Pokémon Krookodile can make other Pokémon pull their punches every time it uses its sneaky Black Eyes Ability. Your opponents will be on the ropes as even little Minccino gets in on the action, packing a mighty punch for its mini size. With Pokémon chosen for their fighting fury, can your foes handle your power plays?

Toxic Tricks Theme Deck

Turn the tables on your opponents with the Toxic Tricks theme deck! Gothitelle’s Mental Shock attack will confuse and confound your opponents, and Scolipede’s poisonous double-dose Toxic Claws attack will leave your opponents feeling more than a little tricked! And, when Gothita gets in the mix with its sleep-inducing Hypnotic Gaze, your opponents will be Poisoned, Asleep, Confused, and beaten in no time!
