The Lucario VSTAR Starter Set (Japanese: スターターセットVSTAR ルカリオ) and Darkrai VSTAR Starter Set (Japanese: スターターセットVMAX ダークライ) are a pair of Pokémon Trading Card Game decks that were released in Japan on February 25, 2022 and in Taiwan and Hong Kong on March 11, 2022.


Available alongside the Japanese Battle Region subset were two 60-card pre-constructed starter sets that focused on the Aura Pokémon Lucario and the Mythical Pitch-Black Pokémon Darkrai. Each starter set portrays the titular Pokémon on Pokémon V and Pokémon VSTAR cards and are accompanied by a selection of supporting Trainer cards, Special Energy cards, and other similarly-typed Pokémon. Each set also comes packaged with a sheet containing 36 damage counters and 2 status markers, a player's guide, a coin, a VSTAR marker, and a playmat.

These Starter Sets were also released in Traditional Chinese on March 3rd, 2022 and Korean on May 4th, 2022.
