The deck relies on using multiple Defenders to use Selfdestruct without getting knocked out. This can devastate Active and Benched Pokémon on the opponent's and user's team. He also has Gust of Wind cards to switch the opponent's more heavily damaged Pokémon with Pokémon with less damage to deal high damage more efficiently and knock out multiple Pokémon. The deck can be countered easily by using Fighting type cards like Sandshrew, Cubone, and Diglett and their evolutions. These cards have a limited resistance to damage from Electric types.

  • After defeating all three Lightning Club Members (second time)
"My lightning Pokémon Deck is the greatest! How about it? You want to see how good it is?"
System: "Would you like to duel Isaac?"
Yes: "The sparks will fly with 6 prizes! I'll show you what my lightning Pokémon deck can do!"
No: "I'm not busy anymore, so I'll take you on any time!"
  • After being defeated
"How could my lightning deck lose!?! How shocking...! Here, take this Lightning Medal as proof of defeating me. And here, take this Booster Pack, too. ...And another Booster Pack: Mystery. I'm going to polish my card skills, so come duel again."
