Sequence: 1st set in North America, 1st set in Japan

Release date: January 9th, 1999 in North America; ??? in Japan The Pokémon TCG's first release in the US came as something of a whimper... because of it's "kiddy" qualities, many card shops were reluctant to buy it. As a result, many card shops didn't release it until March or April. Of course, once they were released, they wondered how they did without.
