The Retort Theme Deck from the Call of Legends expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game predominantly focuses on Fighting-type and Lightning-type Pokémon. Each Theme Deck is packaged with a 60-card deck, damage counters, a custom coin, a rulebook, a card list, a single-player mat, and a Call of Legends booster pack.


Set your opponents reeling with ferocious counterattacks when you play the Retort theme deck! While Groudon builds its powerful Volcano Stomp attack from your Bench, Hitmontop's rapid response is its Triple Kick attack that can do 60 damage for only 1 Energy! And if your opponent thinks that sending your Pokémon to the Lost Zone is a good strategy, Lucario has a stunning answer to that with its Dimension Sphere attack. The Retort theme deck could be the answer to your victory!
