The National Pokédex Beginning Set (Japanese: はじめてセット 全国図鑑版セット) is a Japanese-exclusive release of cards in the BW era of the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
The National Pokédex Beginning Set is a very similar release to the earlier Beginning Set: both have three half decks based on the Generation VstartersSnivy, Tepig, and Oshawott; both also contain the same assortment of game essentials. This release deviates from the Beginning Set by, as the name suggests, containing Pokémon from all generations. Each half deck shares a collective numbering system and set symbol. The half decks are further identified by featuring colored silhouettes of the appropriate starter Pokémon. The holographic cards use the bubble foil pattern previously used on cards from the Beginning Set. In addition to the half decks, each set contains damage counters, a coin, a play mat, as well as how to play DVDs and manuals.
