The Brilliant Thunder Theme Deck from the Flashfire expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game focuses on Fire and Lightning type Pokémon. Like other Theme Decks, Brilliant Thunder includes damage counters, a custom coin, one two-player mat, a Heliolisk deckbox and a TCGO deck access code.


Lightning Strikes and fires rage when you bring the Brilliant Thunder theme deck to battle! Harness the might of Pidgeot's Strong Gust to deliver booming blows to your foes. Bring your opponents to their knees as you buffet them with the thunderous strike force of Lopunny and Heliolisk! Fuel the ferocious flames with Fiery Torch and, as the sky begins to fall on your adversaries, deliver the final word with Snorlax's Sleepy Press! As the smoke clears, will you leave your opponents thunderstruck?
