Reason: Needs images from both games and GB2 information.

An Auto Deck Machine (Japanese: オートデッキマシン Auto Deck Machine) is a machine that contains predefined lists for certain card decks.

This is similar to the Deck Save Machine, where the player can save customized decks.


Pokémon Trading Card Game

There are 9 Auto Deck Machines found at the east room of the Mason Laboratory, only one of which is operational from the beginning of the game. The remaining 8 require the player to defeat Club Masters to obtain Master Medals that can be used to activate them.

There is also a Legendary Auto Deck Machine found at the end of the game, in the Hall of Honor at the Pokémon Dome, which is accessible after the player defeats the four Grand Masters and the Champion. If the player wants to use this machine, they will need to do it before leaving the room or getting the prize card (which displays the credits and causes the player to leave automatically), or else the Hall of Honor will be locked again until the next time the player defeats the Grand Masters and Champion.
