The V Battle Deck—Venusaur vs. Blastoise is a pair of Theme Decks that were released for the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the Sword & Shield Series. They were released on February 5, 2021.


V Battle Deck—Venusaur vs. Blastoise

Two Strong Pokémon V Stand Ready!

Get ready for a major Pokémon battle with a ready-to-play double deck bundle—with extra Trainer cards! The Pokémon TCG: V Battle Deck—Venusuar[sic] vs. Blastoise includes a deck for you and one for a friend, so you can face off. You can choose either Venusaur V or Blastoise V to lead your team in a heads-up battle against another Trainer. Then, switch up the decks and see what things look like from the other side—can you win with both powerful Pokémon V?

Venusaur V Battle Deck

Hone That Double-Edge—with Venusaur V!

Loaded with skill and sunshine, Venusaur V has razor-sharp foliage and a set of powerful friends, including the darting Yanmega and a swarm of Durant! Bede keeps the Energy moving, Sonia keeps your hand full of options, and Evolution Incense means you can power up your Bench! Indeedee and Eldegoss bring their own attacks to keep the Venusaur V Battle Deck green and strong!

Blastoise V Battle Deck

Fire Up a Torrential Cannon—with Blastoise V!

Put massive water pressure on the field and help Blastoise V keep a swift-running river of power flowing! With Drednaw locking down with Vise Bite, and Volcanion firing up the Dynamite Steam, you’ve got a Water-type deck that knows how to grab and hold and never let go! Sharpedo, Barraskewda, and Cramorant add extra teeth to the Blastoise V Battle Deck!


The V Battle Deck—Venusaur vs. Blastoise was the first release in the V Battle Deck product line and were the first to feature the Play Level system, similar to the level system on items manufactured by Wizards of the Coast during their tenure. The V Battle Decks are Play Level 1, indicating they are aimed at beginners to the TCG, and effectively replace the traditional Theme Decks that previously accompanied main expansions.

The V Battle Decks could be purchased individually as the Venusaur V Battle Deck and the Blastoise V Battle Deck or purchased together in the V Battle Deck—Venusaur vs. Blastoise. Each deck contains a fixed selection of 60 cards, among which include the eponymous Pokémon as a Pokémon V and some from the Shining Fates expansion ahead of their general release. Each deck also includes a deck box, damage counters, a single-player playmat, a rules booklet, a Quick Guide, three reference cards, a TCGO code card, and an extra-large-sized coin. The combined product includes eight additional Trainer cards and another TCGO code card, packaged within the Venusaur Deck, and another guide referencing these cards, which is packaged in the Blastoise Deck.
