The 2-Player CD-ROM Starter Set is a special beginners deck from Base Set 2 of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. It includes a Pokémon Play It! CD-ROM, which includes interactive features to demonstrate how to play the TCG. It is similar to the original 2-Player Starter Set released alongside Base Set, comprising 61 cards, broken down into two 30-card half decks: one focusing on Pokémon, and one on Pokémon, plus an additional Machamp card. The 2-Player CD-ROM Starter Set also includes a rulebook, damage counters, a custom coin, a card list, and playmat.
Since Machamp was not printed in Base Set 2, the Machamp card included in this set is a reprint from Base Set. Like the Machamp included in the original 2-Player Starter Set, it was printed as a 1st Edition card, but uses the Cosmos Holofoil treatment as per the rare Holo cards in Base Set 2.
