The Royal Guard Theme Deck from the Triumphant expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game predominantly focuses on Fighting-type and Psychic 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 Triumphant booster pack.


Let Nidoking lead from the front and unleash its devastating Venomous Horn attack to punish and Poison your foe's Pokémon! Then, bring the opposition to its knees as Machamp steps up to deliver your crowning achievement with its majestic Hundred Furious Punches attack... And, if revolution is in the air, the Twins Supporter card will help crush any challenge to your sovereignty by rewarding you with extra cards! Will your rule be absolute with the Royal Guard theme deck?
