Ice Rider Palkia is the name of the deck used by Rikuto Ohashi, the Juniors Division champion at the 2022 World Championships. It is one of the 2022 World Championships Decks released March 3, 2023. Each deck comes with a playmat, poster, booklet about the event, TCGL code card, and a special Worlds 2022 deck box, pin, and coin. The cards included in the deck are not the exact prints used by Ohashi, but are the most recent, lowest-rarity print with any Holofoil removed. Each card has a unique card back (thus making them ineligible for tournaments) and Ohashi's signature.


Rikuto Ohashi arrived in London as a League Cup Champion—and left as a World Champion thanks to masterful use of his Ice Rider Palkia deck and the ice that runs in his veins in the face of adversity. This deck’s power lies in its use of Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR’s devastating Subspace Swell attack, in conjunction with Choice Belt and a packed Bench to deliver up to 290 damage per attack and one-shot almost any Pokémon in battle. Backed by the Bench-filling Sobble and a powerful Inteleon engine for seeking the Trainer cards needed to keep attacks powered and put Pokémon in play, this deck dampens an opponent’s enthusiasm for battle. Ain’t that swell?
