When starting a new game, before entering the battle against Tech Sam, the game data shows this deck in the player's inventory. As the game doesn't want the casual player to notice this, it's impossible to go to the menu until a player has selected a "& Friends" starting deck, which would overwrite the deck already in the player's inventory. This is probably a design decision based around the fact that the game cannot function without a deck placed in that deck slot, and the player's movement is forced to hide this function.
