Release information

A new print featuring Lysandre with artwork by Ryuta Fuse was included in the Shining Fates expansion, first released in the Japanese Venusaur & Blastoise VMAX Starter Sets. A Non Holofoil version of the Giovanni Regular print was available in the Japanese Single Strike & Rapid Strike Premium Trainer Boxes, Sword & Shield Family Pokémon Card Game set, and Zacian & Zamazenta vs Eternatus Special Deck Set.

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 character's names are printed in the upper right corner.

Origin

The Rebel Clash prints features Giovanni, formerly the head of Team Rocket and Gym Leader of Viridian City; the Shining Fates and VMAX Climax prints features Lysandre, the boss of Team Flare; and the Brilliant Stars print features Cyrus, the boss of Team Galactic. A group of Team Rocket Grunts, a Trainer class, is also featured in the Giovanni Regular print's illustration.
