Trivia

  • This card's effect is identical to Lysandre. As such, it was ruled that Lysandre and Boss's Orders could not be included in the same deck.
    • Similarly to Professor's Research, Boss's Orders was named specifically to prevent the need for future rulings such as this for subsequent prints featuring different villainous team leaders. The character's names are printed in the upper right corner.

Origin

The Rebel Clash Regular print features Giovanni, formerly the head of Team Rocket and Gym Leader of Viridian City, while the Shining Fates print features Lysandre, the boss of Team Flare. A group of Team Rocket Grunts, a Trainer class are also featured in the Giovanni Regular print's illustration.
