The Explosive Edge Theme Deck from the Next Destinies expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game predominantly focuses on Water-type and Fire-type Pokémon. Each Theme Deck is packaged with a 60-card deck, damage counters, a custom coin, a rulesheet, a card list, a deckbox, a two-player mat, and a TCGO code card.


Attack after devastating attack, you'll drive your opponents to the edge of defeat when you play the Explosive Edge theme deck! With Reshiram's fiery Blue Flare attack and Beartic's powerful Ambush attack, you'll blast your opponent's Pokémon turn after turn. And when Chandelure and Arcanine add even more cutting-edge attacks to your battles, you can expect every victory to be exceptional!
