Mew VMAX League Battle Deck Arriving to Stores Nov. 11
The new Mew VMAX League Battle Deck is arriving in store tomorrow, Nov. 11, and the box is a great addition for those that like to Battle. While the deck itself isn’t necessarily ready for major tournaments, the collection does feature an incredible amount of game-changing cards.
According to the official Pokémon website:
Team up with Mew VMAX and finish opponents with the power of Fusion Strike! This Pokémon VMAX is yours in this League-ready deck that’s perfect for skilled Trainers and Pokémon TCG players. With a slew of cards including premium foil cards and a well-tuned set of Pokémon and Trainer cards, the Mew VMAX League Battle Deck features one of the most popular Pokémon of the Kanto region with the entire power of the Fusion Strike engine behind it.
The set itself includes:
- A full, playable 60-card deck loaded with power cards
- 2 foil cards featuring Mew V
- 2 foil cards featuring Mew VMAX
- 2 foil cards featuring Genesect V
- 1 deck box
- 2 coin condition markers
- 6 damage-counter dice and 1 competition-legal coin-flip die
- 1 strategy sheet
- A code card usable in either the Pokémon TCG Online or Pokémon TCG Live
The 60-card deck includes:
- 2 Mew VMAX
- 2 Mew V
- 2 Genesect V
- 3 Meloetta
- 2 Deoxys
- 1 Oricorio
- 4 Battle VIP Pass
- 4 Boss’s Orders (Cyrus)
- 3 Choice Belt
- 4 Cram-O-Matic
- 4 Elesa’s Sparkle

- 4 Power Tablet
- 2 Switch
- 4 Ultra Ball
- 3 Double Turbo Energy
- 4 Fusion Strike Energy

The Final Word
With a price of around $29.99, this can be great for Trainers new and old to get access to some great cards at a relatively decent value. The six V cards and 4 Battle VIP Passes are already a great deal, but throwing in some additional heavy-hitters is a additional bonus. Considering it’s intended for league, it would have been nice if it came with a better deck box, but that’s just nitpicking at this point.
Trainers will likely need to modify the deck to get it ready for the big leagues. For example, those that really want to start playing in tournaments and regionals, upgrading to 4 Genesect and running 4/3 on Mew V and Mew VMAX is a must. Deoxys can take a hike, and you can likely get rid of the Psychic energy and switch in something more useful.
The Mew VMAX League Battle Deck is available tomorrow, Nov. 11.
