Released from August 11, 1999 onwards, these Pokémon House mini playsets were distributed and produced by Pokémon USA, Inc. for the English market.
Almost all Pokémon House toys were originally distributed under the banner of Pokémon mate by Tomy in Japan.
The smaller sets tended to contain two figures each and a bridge to connect the sets with each other, whilst the Deluxe sets included 4-8 figures.
The included figures took into account popular Pokémon with fans of the anime series and games, such as those owned by the anime's main protagonists like Pikachu or Squirtle.
The Pokémon Deluxe Micro Playsets were released in 2009 and share many product design features with the Pokémon House and Mate, though lack the same connectivity as these sets.

The A-type set is based on Kanto's Mt. Moon, it features Clefairy and Diglett. A buildable archway, moon rock and mountain top help to complete the scenery.
The Park Adventure, or B-type, playset is based on Kanto's Safari Zone, it features Snorlax and Chansey, as well as a Psyduck head located in the pond.
The Forest Adventure, C-type, set is based on Viridian Forest and features Pikachu and Oddish.
The Beach Adventure, D-type, set features Poliwhirl and Squirtle is the only set to feature Pokémon of the same type, in this case Water Pokémon.

These sets only feature one Pokémon, unlike all the previous sets, as well as an elemental orb. Like all sets they interact and can connect using their bridges, though the Deluxe Type A- Shamouti Island Playset helps to complete the collection. The Deluxe sets design even includes a shrine that can hold all three of the legendary birds respective treasures.

All of the deluxe sets were released solely in Japan under the Pokémon mate name. These various sets are all based on M02, M03, the Pokémon Center, PK04, PK05, PK10, M04, and PK11.
A Japanese exclusive trio of foldable cube shaped sets were based on the events of M05, one for Latios and the another for Latias, as well as PK12. A series of characters and building were released to mark M06, a Japanese exclusive that featured Absol and Salamence, amongst others.
Deluxe Type's C and D were later also rereleased to mark the Advanced Generation. These sets only feature different figures and are slightly lighter in color.
