The Quick Starter Gift Set (Japanese: クイックスターターギフト Quick Starter Gift) is a Japanese-exclusive Deck Kit for the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Information

The Deck Kit consists of two Standard Decks, the Red Deck and the Green Deck, which take their names from the first Japanese Pokémon games Pokémon Red and Green. All of the cards included in the set are reprints from the Vending Machine cards collection. These cards differ by not being printed on the same glossy card stock as their counterparts and by not having rarity symbols (as is the case with the majority of Japanese cards from fixed sets), making the reprints more valuable than the normal Vending Machine cards. The set also contains exclusive non-glossy Holofoil versions of Scyther, Moltres, Zapdos, Articuno and Master Ball, all of which are non-Holofoil and glossy in the normal Vending Machine collection.

In addition to the two Standard Decks, the set contains a rulebook, damage counters, two poison status counters, two custom coins, playmat, and one Series 1 (Blue) Extended Sheet. The guidebook Understand How to Play Pokémon Cards Now: Newest Edition is also included, which features illustrations by TCG artists Kagemaru Himeno and Kouichi Ooyama, and Promotional cards Diglett and Dugtrio as inserts.
