The Trainer Deck A, also known as Brock's Deck, is a playing deck of Pokémon Trading Card Game cards produced for use with the Pokémon League, Pewter City Season. Unlike all other Preconstructed Theme Decks, Trainer Deck A was not sold publicly.


All of the cards found within the deck were early printings of the Base Set expansion meant to be used to help league leaders get knowledge out about the Pokémon Trading Card Game. This deck was distributed to prototype Pokémon Leagues before the TCG officially launched in North America. They were not issued to very many leagues and only for a limited time.


Training decks are designed as tools for the Gym Leader to use to enhance the experience of the League Participants.

These decks will allow players to experience the fun of playing against some of the greatest Gym Leaders from season to season as they work to become the greatest Pokémon trainers in the world.

This box contains 60 ready-to-play tradable game cards for use with the Pokémon League.
