Born of Fire (TCG)

The Born of Fire deck

Born of Fire is a Theme Deck featuring Fire and Colorless-type Pokémon. It is an exclusive deck available in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. The deck must be fully unlocked through playing the deck in Trainer's Challenge. Each Trainer defeated provides one or two new cards and removes another card for each from the deck; once the deck is fully unlocked, it can be played in Versus and Events modes.

The deck was released on September 26, 2016 alongside Hidden Depths and Crushing Current as part of build 2.39 of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online. Build 2.41 modified all three decks for balancing purposes, rendering the original versions unavailable for theme deck play and Trainer Challenge.
