Crushing Current (TCG)

The Crushing Current deck

Crushing Current is a Theme Deck featuring Lightning 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 Born of Fire and Hidden Depths 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.
