|Evolution of Froakie Half Deck
||March 4, 2014
The Evolution of Froakie Half Deck (Korean: 개구마르의 진화 Gaegumareu-ui Jinhwa) is a Korean-exclusive Half Deck released on March 4, 2014. Along with the Evolution of Chespin and Evolution of Fennekin Half Decks, its contents make up the larger Korean XY Beginning Set, the first release featuring Generation VI and Pokémon X and Y for Korean audiences.
It is based on the Japanese Froakie Half Deck released within the Boys' version of the XY Beginning Set. The cards included in the three Half Decks make up the larger XY Beginning Set, much like the English Kalos Starter Set and the Japanese XY Beginning Set. However, as the Half Decks are based only on the cards included in the Boys' version of the Japanese XY Beginning Set, the three cards included within the Girls' version are not included, and the set is appropriately out of 36 instead of 39. Additionally, one Pawniard was removed in order to contain two of the deck's main featured Pokémon, Greninja. However, later releases included the Frogadier card in separate packaging as the second Greninja would be unplayable during gameplay.
The Half Deck contains a 30 card deck featuring two Holofoil cards (Greninja and Froakie), a rulebook, damage counters, status counters, a custom coin, playmat, and a preview for the first XY expansion released in Korea roughly two weeks later.
