===Key Cards===
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}}''' is, as mentioned above, the main attacking Pokémon in the deck.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgeot|10}}''' can use its ''Quick Search'' Pokémon Power to set up a {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}} and supporting Pokémon, such as additional {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}} or {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgeot|10}}.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Milotic|12}}''' uses its ''Healing Shower'' {{TCG|Pokémon Power}} to heal damage off both players' Pokémon. This was extremely helpful in certain matchups of the day, including {{TCG|RockLock}}.
===Other Pokémon===
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgey|73}}''' is chiefly there to evolve into {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgeot|10}} at some point. If necessary, {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgey|73}} can also stall in the early game with its ''Corner'' attack, which prevents the Defending Pokémon from retreating.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgeotto|45}}''' also functions solely to evolve into {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgeot|10}}.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoran♀|70}}''' is, again, there to evolve into {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}}. Its ''Call For Friends'' attack also makes it a viable starter Pokémon, since Basic Pokémon are a significant part of the deck's success.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidorina|40}}''' actually has a purpose other than evolving. Its ''Fast Evolution'' attack allows the player to search their deck for up to two evolution cards and add them to their hand. This is especially useful in Queendom because a centerpiece of the deck is, in fact, the concept of "fast evolution" so as to power up {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}}'s ''Power Lariat'' attack.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Feebas|61}}''' is there for the sole purpose of evolving into {{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Milotic|12}}.
===Other Trainers/Supporters===
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Celio's Network|88}}''' was a staple card in almost every deck at the time, due to its fantastic ability to search any Pokémon (except {{TCG|Pokémon-ex}}) from a player's deck. It speeds up Queendom and makes it easier to get out {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}} and {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgeot|10}}.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Desert Ruins|88}}''' is mostly used as a counter for {{TCG ID|EX Emerald|Battle Frontier|75}}, another popular {{TCG|Stadium card}} that shuts off ''Quick Search''. Additionally, {{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Desert Ruins|88}} can prove a vital asset against decks centered around {{TCG|Pokémon-ex}}.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Sandstorm|Rare Candy|88}}''' lets the player evolve {{TCG|Basic Pokémon}} into {{TCG|Stage-2 Pokémon}} directly, skipping the middle stage. Since this allows {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgey|73}} to evolve directly into {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Pidgeot|10}} and {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoran♀|70}} to evolve directly into {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}}, this speeds up the deck tremendously.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Team Rocket Returns|Copycat|83}}''' is simply a good hand-refresher.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Great Ball|92}}''' can grab any {{TCG|Basic Pokémon}} from the player's deck, which can help get additional evolutions out.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Steven's Advice|92}}''' is just a simple drawing {{TCG|Supporter card|Supporter}}.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Team Rocket Returns|Rocket's Admin.|86}}''' can disrupt the opponent's hand in the late game or give the Queendom player a new hand of 6 cards at the beginning of the game. It's a diverse card.
*'''{{TCG ID|EX Dragon|Mr. Briney's Compassion|87}}''' is used in the late game to pick up the {{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Milotic|12}} and be able to reuse its effect.
===Energy Cards===
*'''{{TCG|Grass Energy}}''' is used to power {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}}'s ''Toxic'' attack.
*'''{{TCG|Double Rainbow Energy}}''' speeds up the deck by decreasing the number of energy cards needed by {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}} to attack, since it's basically two energy for the price of one.
*'''{{TCG|Heal Energy}}''' simply is useful for healing 10 damage off a Pokémon. Since 10 damage can make the difference between another turn to live or a knockout, this is a helpful card.
*'''{{TCG|Fighting Energy}}''' simply provides the energy needed for {{TCG ID|EX FireRed & LeafGreen|Nidoqueen|9}}'s ''Lariat'' attack.
