Description in the game

Though Declan is only 16 years old, this professional Duelist has been running Leo Corporation and the Leo Institute of Dueling (LID) as their president. As one of the select few who know about the existence of other dimensions, he forms the Lancers to protect this world from interdimensional invaders. He not only uses powerful Fiend-Type D/D and D/D/D monsters in his deck, he may be the only Duelist who has mastered four summoning methods: Fusion, Synchro, Xyz and Pendulum.

Let’s hope we get Shay as a first unlockable character in the future.

Why is he first? That makes little sense in terms of both the show pacing and how Sora is a more prominent character
I wouldn't complain, but it doesn't seem logical

Shouldn't Shun/Shay come after Yuto instead?

Why do you think Shay will be first? By all accounts Declan is the most likely next character for Arc-V both in terms of game data that I have seen and the plotline of Arc-V. After him the next Arc-V character will probably be Sora, Shay, or Yuto.

Declan is first. The quote in Notifications states "You'll learn that my power transcends dimensions".

Having 1 of them is already too much, I don't want to use that trite word we all already know but that's exactly the feeling those kind of characters give

Rival isn’t useless for once, and is one of, if not the strongest character in the show.

.....You still need to have Sanga, Suijin, and Kazejin in your hand first.

Plus having the Pendulums set.

Plus having Gate Guardian in your hand as well.

@OP Reply
Gate Guardian cannot be Special Summoned except by its own effect XD

So like the above anon says, you must Pendulum Summon the trio instead, which means you need a lot of cards anyway.
