The Entry Pack (Japanese: エントリーパック Entry Pack) is a Japanese-exclusive Deck Kit that was released alongside the Space-Time Creation expansion of the Pokémon Trading Card Game.


The Entry Pack was released just before the first DP expansion and as its name suggests, is designed to showcase a selection of cards from the expansion before the full general release. The Deck Kit itself consists of three Half Decks based on the Generation IV starters and their evolutions: Torterra, Infernape and Empoleon. The Torterra Half Deck includes 28 cards, Infernape includes 30, and Empoleon includes 32, each one cumulatively adding an extra Pokémon to the deck and increasing play strategy. This was also later done with the Half Decks included in the Gift Box DPt.

Unlike the majority of Half Decks, all cards included in the kit could be found in the main expansion, differing by not having rarity symbols. These prints could also possibly be found in the Random Construction Starter Deck.

Like other Half Decks, the Entry Pack also includes a rulebook, damage counters, status counters, and a custom coin. The Entry Pack also features a CD-ROM demonstrating how to play the game.
