Stage 1 Pokémon (TCG)

A Stage 1 Pokémon is a type of evolution card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Stage 1 Pokémon evolve from Basic Pokémon.

A Stage 1 Pokémon can be placed on top of any basic Pokémon in play (including Fossils or Pokémon that have evolved from Baby Pokémon) at the beginning of the player's turn. Stage 1 Pokémon cannot evolve on the turn the Basic Pokémon was played, or on the player's first turn. When placed onto the Basic Pokémon card, all Energy Cards and damage counters remain, but any Special Conditions are removed. Stage 1 Pokémon may only use their Stage 1 attacks, unless their card specifically states otherwise. Stage 1 Pokémon normally have a picture of the Basic Pokémon from which they evolve in the upper left hand corner of the card, along with the text 'Evolves from <Basic Pokémon>'. Stage 1 Pokémon can be removed from the Basic Pokémon by use of Devolution.

Pokémon such as Ivysaur, Raichu, and Omanyte are Stage 1 Pokémon.
