The Pokémon-e Starter Deck (Japanese: スターターパック Starter Pack) is a Japanese-exclusive introductory Half Deck Starter Deck released for the Pokémon Trading Card Game alongside the Base Expansion Pack.


The Pokémon-e Starter Deck contains 30 cards, 12 of which are random. This is atypical of Full Decks and Half Decks, which contain a fixed selection of cards. The Half Deck includes 9 cards from a set of 29 that can only be found in the Starter Deck, 8 cards sourced from the first 32 cards found in Base Expansion Pack, and 13 Energy cards. All of the Pokémon exclusive to the Half Deck feature the evolutionary families of the Generation I and II starter Pokémon, and only one complete family is included in any one Half Deck. The five Trainer cards are always the same, as are 12 of the Basic Energy cards, with the thirteenth determined by the type of the evolutionary family included.

All Pokémon and Trainer cards feature the Base Expansion Pack expansion symbol, but only those that can be found in the main expansion have a Rarity symbol.

The Starter Deck also comes with a rulebook, damage counters, status counters, and a custom coin.
