Combined, the Battle Arena Decks contain exclusive prints of 10 different cards:

The pair also include re-releases of Non Holofoil XY Delphox (×2) from the Battle Arena Decks: Black Kyurem vs. White Kyurem, Non Holofoil BREAKthrough Zoroark (×1) from the Night Striker Theme Deck, Non Holofoil Empoleon (×2) from the Shadows Theme Deck, and XY Promo Karen (×1), Non Holofoil BREAKthrough Octillery (×2), and ©2013 Sheen Holofoil prints of both Fire Energy and Water Energy from the Battle Arena Decks: Rayquaza vs. Keldeo.
