Trivia

  • This card's effect is identical to Lysandre. As such, it was ruled that Lysandre and Boss's Orders could not be included in the same deck.
    • Similarly to Professor's Research, Boss's Orders was named specifically to prevent the need for future rulings such as this for subsequent prints featuring different villainous team leaders. The characters' names are printed in the upper right corner.
