The Raiders Theme Deck from the Dark Explorers expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game predominantly focuses on Psychic-type and Darkness-type Pokémon. Each Theme Deck is packaged with a 60-card deck, damage counters, a custom coin, a rulesheet, a card list, a deckbox, a two-player mat, and a TCGO code card.

Blurb

The Coffin Pokémon Cofagrigus rises to do your bidding when you play the Raiders theme deck! Send Sableye to raid your discard pile for Item cards that, when you discard them from your hand, let Cofagrigus bury your opponent's Pokémon with damage. Then send Krookodile in with its Dark Clamp and Bombast attacks to pin down the Defending Pokémon before enshrouding it in darkness in search of a Knock Out. Prove that you are skilled enough to ensure that your raiders become victors!
