Dark Science Deck


  • Before battle
"I am Rick, the master of the Science Club."
"Science rules nature! That is why it is so strong."
"Do you wish to test the strengths of science by playing against me?"
System: "Would you like to duel Rick?"
Yes: "Alright, 6 prizes! Let us begin!"
No: "It is regrettable that you do not understand the wonders of science."
  • After defeating Rick
"There are, at times, problems even science cannot answer."
"Here, take this Medal. It is the result of our research."
"And let me give you this. Please add it to your collection."
"Legendary Cards are but a legend! Science is the only truth!"
"I must continue my research of science Pokémon!"
"Ha ha ha! As expected. Science is overpowering!"
  • When asking for a rematch
"Hello! It's you again! Do you wish to duel me!"
System: "Would you like to duel Rick?"
Yes: "We'll play with 6 prizes again! Let us begin!"
