Rick (Japanese: クルシマ Kurushima) is the Club Master of the Science Club (Japanese: サイエンスクラブ Science Club). He plays using the Wonders of Science Deck (Japanese: かがくのちからだデッキ Power of Science Deck) and gives away the Science Medal to challengers who defeat him. In Pokémon Trading Card Game 2: The Invasion of Team GR!, he uses the ダークサイエンスデッキ Dark Science Deck.

His club is a laboratory where he works on strange experiments.

Dark Science Deck

Main article: Dark Science Deck (TCG)

Dark Science Deck (Japanese: ダークサイエンスデッキ) is the only deck played by Rick. He will battle a 6 prize card battle when challenged. Defeating Rick gets the player two Island of Fossil booster packs. After freeing Mitch from the GR Fighting Fort, Rick gets his hands on some Sky Flying Pokémon booster packs and will give out one of each type of pack for a victory over him.

Rick is captured as part of the game's initial events and can be found on GR Island in the first room of the GR Grass Fort. Once freed, he gives the player a Hungry Snorlax promo card and returns to his club. From here on, he can be battled anytime.

  • Before battle
"I am Rick, the master of the Science Club."
"Science rules nature! That is why it is so strong."
"Do you wish to test the strengths of science by playing against me?"
System: "Would you like to duel Rick?"
Yes: "Alright, 6 prizes! Let us begin!"
No: "It is regrettable that you do not understand the wonders of science."
  • After defeating Rick
"There are, at times, problems even science cannot answer."
"Here, take this Medal. It is the result of our research."
"And let me give you this. Please add it to your collection."
"Legendary Cards are but a legend! Science is the only truth!"
"I must continue my research of science Pokémon!"
"Ha ha ha! As expected. Science is overpowering!"
  • When asking for a rematch
"Hello! It's you again! Do you wish to duel me!"
System: "Would you like to duel Rick?"
Yes: "We'll play with 6 prizes again! Let us begin!"
No: "Really? That is too bad."
