The Turtonator Deck (Japanese: バクガメスデッキ Bakugames Deck) is a Japanese-exclusive Half Deck released early in the Sun & Moon Era of the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
The Turtonator Deck is one of two Half Decks that were available to purchase exclusively at Pokémon Card Game Classroom deck building learning events held at participating stores across Japan on weekends throughout 2017, starting on the weekend of January 14 and 15, 2017. The titular Blast Turtle Pokémon is accompanied by a selection of Fire, Fighting, and Colorless-type Pokémon, in addition to supporting Trainer and Energy cards. The deck itself is aimed at guiding newcomers to the TCG through the basics of the game, and also comes with a Turtonator Deck Battle Guide that goes into detail about the cards included.
Unlike the majority of fixed card releases in Japan, the set does not have its own collection number or symbol, with reprinted cards bearing numbers, symbols, and rarity from their source expansions with the exception of Turtonator, which is a SM-P Promotional card. All cards do however feature a red Poké Ball symbol towards the bottom right corner, some of which also include a number.
