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 Japanese Pokémon Trading Card Game decks that were released on February 25, 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.
