The Gift Box (Japanese: ギフトボックスGift Box) is a special collection of cards for the Pokémon Trading Card Game and was released in Japan only.
The gift box contains two half decks, focusing on the legendary Pokémon Latias and Latios. It also contains the last several English-exclusive EX Sandstorm cards that were carried over from the Japanese Magma VS Aqua: Two Ambitions expansion. Several cards included in the gift box were also released in the EX Dragon expansion, meaning the gap between their Japanese release and their English commercial release was only 1 week. With the inclusion of Prereleases however, these cards were also available in English first.
In addition to the cards, the gift box contains a demonstrative CD-ROM, a large rulebook, damage counters, generic counters, a custom coin, and a playmat.
Latias ex and Latios ex differ from their Rulers of the Heavens counterparts by featuring alternate artwork.
