- This article is about the decks of the Pokémon Trading Card Game video game. For the actual decks, see Theme Deck (TCG).
At the beginning of their quest, a Trading Card Game duelist is given one of these decks in the video games Pokémon Trading Card Game and Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!.
Pokémon Trading Card Game
At the start of Pokémon Trading Card Game, Dr. Mason gives the player character Mark any of three options of decks to start this journey. The player may choose the Charmander & Friends Deck, the Squirtle & Friends Deck, or the Bulbasaur & Friends Deck. Each deck is named after a member of the original trio of Kanto starter Pokémon: Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle.
These three deck configurations are also found in the Deck Save Machine since the start of the game, and can be deleted from this machine like any other saved deck. They are not exactly the same as the decks found in the first Auto Deck Machine, which share the same name in English, but have different names in Japanese.
Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!
At the start of Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!, Dr. Mason gives the Starter Deck to the player character Mark or Mint. Charmander is the only Kanto starter found in this deck.
This deck configuration is also found at the Auto Deck Machine since the start of the game.
