The Shadows Theme Deck from the Dark Explorers expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game focuses on Darkness and Water Pokémon. Like other Theme Decks, Shadows includes damage counters, a custom coin, one two-player mat, a Zoroark deckbox, and a TCGO deck access code.


When Zoroark emerges from the shadows, there won't be a shadow of a doubt about who will win! Even if Zoroark takes a hit or two, its Dark Rush attack does more damage for each damage counter on it. And while Empoleon uses its Diving Draw Ability to give you greater access to your deck, your other Pokémon can use their fast and effective attacks to do damage, cause Confusion, and then put out your opponent's lights. Make your opponents afraid of their own shadows when you play the Shadows theme deck!
