After being featured in raids on Pokémon Go, Rayquaza-GX returns to the action in Pokémon TCG Battle Arena decks to face off against Ultra Necrozma-GX.

Dragon types are weak to Fairy but not to each other, making these Battle Arena preconstructed decks a powerful addition to the Pokémon TCG scene. 

Rayquaza-GX (Celestial Storm expansion) and Ultra Necrozma-GX (Forbidden Light expansion) are each a Legendary Pokémon-GX leading within two preconstructed Battle Arena decks.

Containing 60 cards in each deck, the Battle Arena boxes are full of accessories and special cards designed to reward beginning and veteran players alike. 

  • A Rayquaza-GX and Ultra Necrozma-GX Legendary Pokémon-GX foil cards
  • A single Prism Star card
  • Six foil basic Energy cards
  • Tournament-level trainer cards that include Cynthia and Erika’s Hospitality
  • An all-new art Supporter card
  • One metallic coin
  • Playmat and rule sheet for two players
  • Damage counters

Pokémon-GX first appeared in the Sun & Moon expansion as a slightly more powered-up version of Pokémon-EX and Pokémon-ex, with a few minor differences in gameplay.

Each of the preconstructed decks is considered a part of Standard rotation, but are considered as slightly weaker than previous printed versions. These decks are great for beginners or players returning to Pokémon after an extended hiatus, though.
