The gift box contains four quarter decks (combined into 2 Half Decks or 1 Full deck, each one centralising around a particular Pokémon. Of interest are Mew and Lucario, as they feature in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. Also included are two Pokémon , which originally sent the price of the gift box soaring overseas. Many of the cards were later released in English in the EX Holon Phantoms expansion. One notable absentee however was Lucario, as the TCG outside Japan very rarely features Owner's Pokémon with no ties to the core series games, or Pokémon revealed before their appearance in a main series game. Lucario eventually made its English TCG debut in Diamond & Pearl.
In addition to the cards, the gift box contains a rulebook, damage counters, status counters, a custom coin, and playmat.
The same style tin was used for the Gift Box Emerald, released in Japan almost a year prior.
