Ending the Neo era in similar fashion to the Original era, the Intro Pack Neo (Japanese: イントロパック★neo) was made available on April 6, 2001.

Both have accompanying 10-card side decks that include useful cards that can be integrated into the existing half decks. Most of the cards are sourced from previously released expansions, though several are exclusive to the set. The set also comes with a beginners rulebook, damage and status counters, a coin, and a play mat.
